Weekly Link Round-Up


This week’s round-up combines the usual deal (good reads from around the web) with my weekly recap of all things Rox Pile. So it’s like two awesome things in one place! Enjoy

  • Kevin O’Brien of Seedlings to Stars published a piece on Latin pitching prospects in the National League West, among them the Rockies’ own Edwar Cabrera (who earns a B+).
  • Andrew Fisher compared the home opener to a bad first date, and I can confirm that I’ve had first dates that were almost as painful as this game.
  • Hayden bravely took on a task I am entirely unwilling to: understanding the Sunday lineup. You know, The Sunday Lineup.
  • Joe Soriano of Call to the Pen reviewed the NL West’s offseason, and gave everybody a worse grade than the Rockies, except the Padres.
  • Curtis reported on the Rockies’ signing of Brian Anderson to a minor-league deal.
  • Hayden made a quality case for the notion that Jeremy Guthrie is good and Tim Lincecum is, in fact, thoroughly evil.
  • Any mention of the Blake Street Bombers on a website is going to get a second look from me. Written by Bryan Kilpatrick? Looking yet again.
  • Purple Row’s Andrew Martin fretted about the Rockies’ defense so far this season, a worry I am beginning to think is legitimately warranted.
