The Winter Meetings are officially underway in Las Vegas. It’s time to see what (if any) moves the Colorado Rockies will make during these days when the baseball world all comes together in one place.

Rox Pile is in Las Vegas, ready to bring you the latest information, news and rumors surrounding the Colorado Rockies. Joining me in Las Vegas is Jake Shapiro, who recorded a fresh Rockie Road podcast just as the Winter Meetings officially kick into high gear.

In this Rockie Road podcast, Shapiro and guest Jena Garcia sit down to take a look at what the Rockies might or might not do during this week. Included in the discussions were names such as J.T. Realmuto of the Miami Marlins and Noah Syndergaard of the New York Mets. How realistic might a trade be if the Rockies wanted to land one of these two big names? They get into the possibilities … and if it’s even a thought Rockies fans should be considering.

Of course, as has been discussed much this offseason, Colorado is in need an offensive boost in its lineup. Could a move like that come here at these Winter Meetings? It’s discussed as well as where the offensive boost might come from in free agency.

Also, Gerardo Parra might have meant more to the Rockies than people think and Shapiro explains why.

Part of the discussion around Parra and Diaz is the thought of a sustainable winning culture in Colorado. What will it take to keep that going after two consecutive postseason berths? Shapiro dives into his thoughts with that.
