This Week on Rox Pile


It’s recap time on Rox Pile! If you missed any of this week’s spring training games, we’ve got all the info right here, along with our thoughts on how things are going in Scottsdale so far.


I posted a little preview of the Rockies’ first official spring training game against the Diamondbacks.

And then later on, I recapped that same game and praised the performances of up-and-comers Nolan Arenado and Drew Pomeranz.


Hayden weighed in on Alex White’s DUI arrest and the team’s response to it.

I recapped the Rockies’ win over the D-backs and Ben Paulsen’s walk-off heroics.


Hayden revisited the Alex White situation as new details came to light and criticized the organization for mishandling White’s deception.

I recapped the Rockies’ loss to the Cubs and the failure of Alex White, among other pitchers, to keep the team in the game.

Hayden unpacked Jhoulys Chacin’s assessment of his tough outing on Monday and considered whether he’s working toward long-term improvement or just not as good as we were hoping.


I recapped the Rockies’ loss to the Giants and called attention to Wil Nieves’ defense so far this spring.

Curtis profiled pitcher Dustin Molleken and pondered his future with the Rockies.


I recapped the Rockies’ loss to the Royals, including the part where Felipe Paulino pitched two scoreless innings for Kansas City.

Hayden tried to help us digest the news that Ubaldo Jimenez wanted to be traded after all. There’s nothing that can really soften the blow, but it helps to commiserate.


I recapped the Rockies’ loss to the A’s, although the only thing I really talked about was how much I love Juan Nicasio.
