Jenny Cavnar interviews Story, Dahl, Freeland and Bud Black
In what has to be an incredible honor, Kyle Freeland's high school alma mater, Thomas Jefferson in Denver retired his number 21 jersey in a school-wide assembly on Monday afternoon. AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain's Taylor McGregor was there to capture the special moment.
Ryan McMahon is having a good Spring Training, to say the least. He's hitting .429 with two home runs and nine RBI in 42 spring at bats, good for a 1.241 OPS. Well, that just went up with this home run. Yes, #SpringStatsDoNotMatter but c'mon, this is fun.
In a press conference at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick today, the Rockies officially announced Nolan Arenado's record contract extension. When the mic came to the third basemen, he got a little emotional and I reckon you will too when you watch.
Seunghwan Oh has had a pretty incredible professional career, from being one of the best relievers in the history of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO), to becoming a superstar closer in Japan, to trotting across the major leagues. This winter, he commissioned an artist to put that journey to the page and it's pretty incredible. Oh is and always will be cooler than me. And probably you, too.
It's just another reason to love Trevor Story.
Now hosted at Fangraphs. I hope you guys pitch in like you always have, and evaluate your team: Registration required, but free.
Why yes, that IS why we play the games
This was the first home run by a Rockies player in the All-Star Game since Matt Holliday in 2008.
