This week, Evan, Mario, and Kenneth discuss the Colorado Rockies and their first three games of the season against the San Diego Padres. The Old Man Squad of Charlie Blackmon, Kris Bryant, and CJ Cron are red hot to start the season, with Cron on an absolute tear. Cron went 7-for-11 with three home runs and two walks in his first three games. How is the rest of the team faring at the plate? Meanwhile, Germán Márquez and Kyle Freeland both had excellent season debuts... but the Rockies pitching depth falls off a cliff after that with José Ureña as the third starter.
