The Colorado Rockies are back to their losing ways after dropping the last two games of the series to the Texas Rangers. Let’s link up around baseball.

Not much to say about the Colorado Rockies here — you guys know the drill, once or twice a week, we drop some links on you about the Rockies, and sometimes about the rest of baseball.

Troy Tulowitzki quote gets taken out of context (Purple Row).
This is good stuff from Bryan Kilpatrick (my friend, see here) on Tulo and the Rockies. It’s also an interesting discussion/dissection of how the media operates. That’s not a shot at the media (the “media” gets far too many pot shots for too many “narrative” problems from various angles), but it is important for media members to navel-gaze every now and then. More on this soon.

Even in a bad season, Rockies fans have things to be happy about (Purple Row).
I can think of another few reasons in addition to this, but these three are a good start if you’re looking for some fun things to know about or more optimistic reasons to keep watching a team that’s getting more and more difficult to watch.

Prospect Dahl finding stride in return (
So maybe removing your spleen should be required for every single prospect? Kidding, obviously. But David Dahl has sure come back quickly and he’s playing like his hair is on fire. That’s a great thing.

Dickerson could return from injury soon (
Yay! Corey Dickerson is going to come back soon! My God, do we need him. No offense to Brandon Barnes, but it’ll sure be nice to see Corey Dickerson out in left field again, wouldn’t it?

The Colorado Rockies are going to enjoy an off day today, so we’ll be back with series previews and much, much more tomorrow before the weekend series!
