Colorado Rockies Podcast: West Side Story
By Jake Shapiro
There was a lot to discuss after last night’s game between the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.
Down on the West Coast, Trevor Story impressed the Rockie Road podcast against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday night. In the 5-3 loss, Story stole his eighth base of the season as the Colorado Rockies improved their streak to 15 straight swipes without being caught on the base paths.
While Story’s base running has been impressive, I talked about an aspect of his game that’s been even better … one that may even make him golden, or his glove at least.

Also, I try to explain why Story’s error count may be higher than it should be. That aspect of the game ties into the Rockies’ biggest blackhole and one of their biggest problems. I try to diagnose what cost Colorado on Tuesday and that as a trend.
Rockie Road also went over Chad Bettis‘ start as well as the bullpen blowup.
There’s something wrong with the bullpen that’s plaguing them and nobody is talking about it. I did.
How are the Rockies in first place in National League West? Honestly, I don’t really know but they are somehow, so that’s fun.
Of course, the offense has been atrocious but their biggest problems are being largely ignored. Old school or new school baseball, I think you may want to hear where the offense can improve.
