Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for Tuesday, September 29, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies have done it! They’ve finished their home schedule. It’s certainly bittersweet, since we won’t see another game take place at Coors Field until April 2016. It’s also… well, it’s kind of sweet, because the Rockies had one of the worst home records they’ve ever had at home this year, so it’s not like we’re that sad to see them go.

But you know, baseball and all. It’s football season now. Football’s fine, absolutely nothing wrong with it. But it’s not baseball. Sigh.

Ok, here’s what’s going down in today’s edition of the rundown:

  • Kevin Padlo and Carlos Herrera represent the Boise Hawks on Baseball America’s Northwest League prospect list.
  • Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez are duking it out for home run supremacy in the final week of the season.
  • George Frazier retired!
  • Several Colorado Rockies’ prospects are taking part in fall instructional leagues.
  • Is there any hope for Eddie Butler?
  • The Rockies did the year-end tradition Fan Appreciation Walk around Coors Field on Sunday. Sad face. Bye bye, Coors Field!

Lots to discuss! Let’s cover today’s news and notes around the Colorado Rockies.
