In the latest Rockie Road Podcast, Rox Pile’s Jake Shapiro rings in the first show of the new year by talking about the latest with the Colorado Rockies.

From who will be the club’s starting centerfielder to have the Colorado Rockies done enough this offseason to make it back-to-back-to-back playoff appearances, “Shap” covers all the bases.

Most interesting may have been a-way-too-early win projection and how the Rockies will fare in a new look National League West. With the Dodgers still kings but D-Backs and Giants fading/accepting their fate, how will the Rockies react?

The latest on Nolan Arenado and extension talks as he enters his contract year is discussed. How much will Manny Machado and Bryce Harper figure into Arenado’s wallet?

Larry Walker and Todd Helton‘s Hall of Fame candidacies are discussed. Which player would Shap enshrine in Cooperstown first?

Could Jeff Hoffman factor into the rotation finally? If not, who will be the team’s fourth and fifth starters behind German Marquez, Kyle Freeland and Jon Gray? Tyler Anderson, Chad Bettis and Antonio Senzatela are all pretty sound options.

What role will Garrett Hampson play? Where is Ian Desmond going to play? These topics are covered as well.

And you won’t want to miss Shapiro’s latest dive into recent contracts and what it may spell for labor peace in the game.
