The Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies are facing each other in Denver this week, so it’s only natural to have some brotherly love with the rest of the Rockies’ blogosphere.

The Colorado Rockies are playing the boys from the City of Brotherly Love this week, so it’s only fair we link out with some love to our bothers and sisters in arms (in keyboards?) across the Colorado Rockies blogosphere this week.

Here are three great links to follow, if you’re not already. You know, if you’re into good posts and interesting content and in-depth stuff about the Rockies. Because if you’re not interested in those things… well, you probably deserve stuff like this.

Nolan Arenado invests in his glove, but it’s still just a tool (Purple Row).
Eric Garcia McKinley (my favorite!) talks to Nolan Arenado about the importance, and, um, un-importance of his baseball glove. Insightful stuff to a “relationship” players have that most non-players don’t quite understand.

What is Tulo’s trade value? (Rockies Zingers).
Nick Tremaroli (another great Italian name, btw) has a good run-down of what the Rockies might expect to get for Troy Tulowitzki and what his trade value might be for other teams (yes, Mets included… kinda). If you’re going to talk about trading (or not trading) Tulo, at least discuss facts and stay reality-based; this Rockies Zingers post is one of the good places to start in that discussion.

Talking Colorado Rockies podcasts with Ben Badler (Purple Dinosaur Podcast).
The guys from PDP pretty much made me put a link into their podcast on this post, or else they were going to extort me for lots of money. Just joking. [I’m actually not joking, please send help, I’m in fear of my life because I once asked them a question about Yohan Flande and they’ve never forgotten me for it.]
