This Week on Rox Pile


If you missed any of this week’s Rox Pile goodness, you can get it all here. Enjoy!


In light of the news that baseball will see two more wild card teams as early as the 2012 season, I wrote a defense of the other way into the postseason and why I think it’s legit.


Hayden reported on the acquisition of Jeremy Guthrie and just what it means for the latest version of the Rockies’ 2012 rotation.

As part of the Rockies Retread series, I unpacked a surprising win over the Phillies from 1993.


I examined the potential of Josh Outman and where he will land when the Rockies break camp.


Justin Hunter of Chicken Friars and I quizzed each other on which offense improved more this offseason, the Rockies’ or the Padres’.


I gave some reasons why I love Jordan Pacheco and discussed what his utilityness offers to the Rockies in 2012.


Hayden gave us some commentary on Dan O’Dowd’s chat with Troy Renck and what he thinks about how the Rockies look at the tail end of the offseason.

I took a look back at Ellis Burks and all the brilliant things he did while in a Rockies uniform as part of the Homegrown Homecoming series.

Curtis took us inside the Rockies’ bullpen following the departure of Matt Lindstrom this past week, and talked about who would fall into which role in the coming season.
