Last Sunday, the Rockies interrupted everyone’s brunch by announcing they’d made a free-agent signing.

Perhaps Moustakas is a depth signing, which isn’t a bad idea, but during a year when the Rockies were committed to playing their prospects, this seems like a questionable move.

And the news about Sean Bouchard is not good.

It’s been a tough Spring Training for the Rockies.

Meanwhile, here’s what happened on Purple Row.

  • Kenneth Weber continued his tour through the Rockies’ MiLB system, this time focusing on the Spokane Indians.
  • The Rockies’ outfield is complicated, so Paul Elliott examined the possibilities given Kris Bryant’s move to left field..
  • So, why did the Rockies sign Mike Moustakas to an MiLB contract? Skyler Timmins teased out the logic.
  • Evan Lang provided an update on former Rockies who are spending this Spring Training with other teams.
  • Finishing up the week, Joelle Milholm speculated on Ezequiel Tovar and expectations.
