Spring is in the air, folks!

And so is meaningful baseball. We’ve reached the point where we’re a bit bored with Spring Training games and ready to move on to the main event. That’s happening soon, and we’ll know if Bill Schmidt’s offseason decisions will result in an improved Rockies team.

In the meantime, here’s what happened on Purple Row this week.

  • Kenneth Weber explained what the Rockies will need to do this season with their veterans.
  • One of the big stories right now is the collapse of the RSNs. Paul Elliott considered what may be next.
  • The Rockies signed Jurickson Profar to a one-year contract. Skyler Timmins outlined the possibilities.
  • As the Rockies’ Opening Day roster begins to take shape, Evan Lang explained why it’s a good idea to send some of the young players to Albuquerque to begin the season.
  • Finishing up the week, Joelle Milholm gave five reasons to look forward to the Rockies’ 20.
  • And we concluded our yearly “State of the Position Series.” Read all of it here.

MLB began its 2023 promotional advertising this week. The Bryan Cranston clip got all the attention, but I rather liked this one.
