After salvaging one of their four games in Phoenix, the Colorado Rockies have an off day on Monday in Denver before starting a series Tuesday with the Los Angeles Angels.

There’s no place like home… right? The Colorado Rockies will find that out tonight as they take on the Los Angeles Angels in a two-game set of interleague action — an Angels team that’s been hot lately and is currently six games above .500 after opening up the year really struggling.

Never mind all that now, because the Rox are facing a good team. So with that, let’s get you some links to feast on before the Tuesday evening affair begins at 6:40 pm MT…

Here’s how to make Troy Tulowitzki an All-Star (Rox Pile).
I know, it feels kinda weird linking to ourselves (because you guys already read that post… right? Right?). But we’re doing it! Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu are already All Stars, and Tulo has a shot to make it, too — you should probably vote like mad for him over the next four days. Thank ya kindly.

Colorado Rockies’ losing ways are losing their hardcore fans (Denver Post).
I’m not doubting that this is the case at all, but it’s one guy. Let’s… ya know… come off the title a little bit before we blast all hardcore fans for leaving the team. (Oh, and the couple thousand dip in attendance — losing is part of it, but the team sucked last year; let’s be honest, it’s on the weather.)

Who should you support on this year’s Final Vote ballot? (Sports Illustrated).
The guys at Sports Illustrated argue that Clayton Kershaw deserves the Final Vote spot ahead of Tulo. I’m not saying they are wrong, but damn, y’all — vote Tulo anyways!

Brendan Rodgers: things couldn’t be any better (Purple Row).
Drew Creasman talks to first round draft pick Brendan Rodgers about his experience in professional baseball and how he’s doing with the Grand Junction Rockies. Good sh*t.
