The Colorado Rockies are going to spend the next seven days (and six games) in Los Angeles, facing the Angels and Dodgers up through the weekend. 

More from Colorado Rockies News

Remember when the weather cooperated in Denver, and the Colorado Rockies played more than a game a week there? Me neither.

So after washing out most of a homestand thanks to unseasonably, well, weird weather, the Rockies find themselves on the road once again, and we all die a little bit inside knowing how this whole road trip thing is going to go…

Nevertheless, some links below for your off day pleasure. Along with the usual Rockies fare, we threw in some with an L.A. flare. Enjoy, and we’ll see you Tuesday night for the first Angels game!

Angels Trade Deadline Wishlist (Halo Hangout).
CarGo’s on this list! The Angels do need an outfielder, and they’re getting absolutely no offensive production from, well, everybody except for Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun, so perhaps CarGo could fit in the outfield with them if things get bad in Denver.

Just Look At The Grandal Effect: Yasmani Dingers! (Lasorda’s Lair).
Leave it to the Rockies to play the Dodgers right when the boys in blue finally get a catcher who doesn’t suck offensively. And four more this coming weekend – oh yay!

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For The Angels This Year (Halo Hangout).
Our friend Trey Hannula give the cliff notes version of the Angels’ first couple dozen games as we prepare to see them tomorrow night at Angel Stadium.

Mike Trout Is The Face Of Baseball (Halo Hangout).
Yohan Flande, you guys. YOHAN FLANDE. (But seriously, get ready for 48 hours of Trout this week – he’s a hell of a guy to watch play baseball.)

Rock Cats find another win, now 17-2 in their last 19 (New Britain Herald).
This is a couple days old, but the Rock Cats are good – really good – and pretty much having the opposite season of the Isotopes and Rox. Maybe the Rock Cats and Modesto Nuts could jump a few levels and see how well they compete. Yohan Flande’s ready to be an ace!
