Colorado Rockies: Getting coffee with Tony Wolters
What’s better than baseball? How about baseball and coffee. Tony Wolters gained a lot of credit in my book with a simple tweet about meeting for coffee.
In a world where so many people hide behind the keyboard on a phone or computer on social media, getting the opportunity to meet a MLB player, especially in a casual non-work setting by getting coffee at Starbucks, is beyond cool.
Nevertheless, it looks like not everyone was on board with the coffee meet up at Starbucks. One of those seems to be his fellow backstop Chris Iannetta. Iannetta quoted Wolters’ tweet and said this:
After a 7th inning comeback on Monday night against the San Francisco Giants that helped the Rockies win by a score of 5-2, it looks like these guys are feeling loose and having fun with each other.
Even better, the fans seem to be feeling loose, too. Several of them accepted Wolters’ invite and joined him for coffee at Starbucks on South Platte River Trail by the REI store.
How cool is that? It even looks like this might not be the only time Wolters decides to invite the Rockies nation out for an impromptu coffee date since he said that they may do it again sometime.

In a season where I can’t tell what Bud Black is doing with his catchers, particularly lately since Tom Murphy was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque about three weeks ago, this is a nice distraction.
How in the world are Tony Wolters, Chris Iannetta, and Tom Murphy actually going to gain any momentum in their at-bats when none of them are consistently starting each night, let alone seeing any game action whatsoever?
I’ll answer that question another day. For now, though, I’ll enjoy considering which Rockies catcher I’d rather have coffee with.
