The Colorado Rockies got a three-game homestand in between road trips, and they’re heading back to the East Coast now. At least today’s an off day!

The Colorado Rockies are right back out on the road (well, tomorrow they are) after a very, very short homestand. This is a really tough stretch for a ball club that’s just not very good.

Obviously, it’s not like any of us expect much in terms of winning, but it would make the time go by a little easier if they showed up in Washington ready to play… (anybody else get the feeling they might get shut out at least once this weekend? Not just me? Mmmkay.)

Anyways, let’s not put the cart before the horse — the club gets an off day today, and that means link time! Here are some good links from around the Rockies, Rockies media, and baseball in general for you guys as the Rockies head into the weekend.

The Tulo trade and an intersection with life (Purple Row).
Eric Garcia-McKinley is usually a numbers guy for PR and does some pretty technical box score and statistical analysis, but this is a very nice piece that goes well beyond the sabermetrics and quantifiable baseball events that happen on the field every day.

Colorado Rockies 2015 Prospect List (MLB.com).
The Colorado Rockies’ 2015 Top 30 Prospects list got a nice midseason update after the big Troy Tulowitzki trade, so check out where the best of the best in the farm system rank. And start salivating over the what-ifs that are surely crossing your mind as you hope some of these guys turn out to be stars.

BR Bullpen (Baseball Reference).
This isn’t a this-week-only post or anything, but if you’re not familiar with the Baseball Reference Bullpen, I wanted to bring it to your attention. Amazing stuff on this day in baseball history, great resources for crazy and notable historical events, etc. This is a wonderful page to visit every day (and the second website you should be visiting every day besides, ya know, this website right here).

Reyes shows his skills in Coors Field debut (Rockies.com).
He may not be here for a very long time, but Jose Reyes is property of the Rockies now, so it might as well be time to welcome him in and enjoy him being on the club. He’s making way too much money for what he does, but he still does it pretty well, even as a 32-year-old who’s now past his prime.
