MLB Trade Rumors recently published an article on how the Colorado Rockies need to make some tough calls on some of their key players, including possibly trading shortstop Trevor Story and starting pitcher Jon Gray.
The Colorado Rockies are at a bit of a crossroads this offseason and they may have to make some decisions that they don’t like.
On our most recent Rox Pile Rockies Report podcast, my co-expert Kevin Henry and I give our opinions on whether that would be a good move for the Rockies or not.

Also, we discuss some of the albatross contracts that the Rockies have on the books.
We also discussed some of the Rockies that could be a finalist for a National League Gold Glove Award as the finalists will be announced next Thursday. We came to the conclusion that up to three Rockies could be finalists for the award for their respective positions after delving into the defensive stats.
We also analyzed some of what we saw in the the NLCS between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals return home to Washington, D.C. up 2-0 in the series as they have limited the Cardinals to only one run and four hits in the first two games of the series. The Nationals have also only used five pitchers in the two games, including a starter in a relief role.
Considering how poorly the Cardinals have been offensively in the series thus far, we even compare them to the 2018 Rockies in the NLDS and comparing some of the stats between the two series may surprise you.
