Colorado Rockies podcast: Young guys making an impact
We’re only a few days into March, so that means we’ve got tons of Spring Training coverage. This week, the guys over on the Colorado Rockies subreddit podcast, Rockpile Talkpile, go over how Spring Training and the impact of the younger players.
This week, Zach, John, Jason, and guest commentator, Jacy, go over how Spring Training is so far and who’s made an impact. Then, they speculate over who has a possibility of making the roster out of Spring Training.
Hilariously, they speak on how they’ve been critiquing some of the non-roster invitees, but after the fact those players have gone on to having solid outings during the games.

The Rockpile crew discusses some free agent news, mainly pertaining to Mark Reynolds. With the Rockies going full youth movement, perhaps signing may not be a move the Rox should make. Even though the guys believe Reynolds would be cheap to get, there may still be a risk.
‘This leads many to believe they should go full force with the guys they have right now.
Lately, there have been a few people starting to question if last season there were too many home runs hit (meaning were the balls doctored). Commissioner Manfred has only stated that they the balls were still within the regulated limit.
However, some players have done their own investigations on the truth of these questions. Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander is one of them as he has been a firm believer in the differences of the baseballs. Even going so far to tweet out a few graphs to prove his point.
The podcast then goes on a little talking about how the offense wasn’t as up to standard as they should’ve been. Essentially, last season, there were two men that carried the team throughout the whole season. It comes at no surprise that it was Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon.
This also may play into the fact that Blackmon is a free agent after this year and Arenado in 2019. The key to keeping them may be that everyone else needs to step up.
