Even before the conclusion of the World Series, the Colorado Rockies were busy tweaking their 40-man roster and getting ready for the 2020 campaign.
Among the changes were the Colorado Rockies saying goodbye to pitchers Chad Bettis and Tyler Anderson, two of the five starters who were part of Colorado’s 2019 Opening Week rotation. In all, there were five changes to the 40-man roster and you can catch up on all of them by clicking here. Additionally, two more players have left the 40-man roster through free agency and you can catch up on that news here.
So the Rockies are making several moves. Now what? That’s what we wanted to talk to MLB.com’s Manny Randhawa about in our latest podcast. These certainly won’t be the last moves the Rockies make … so what does he see coming in the next few days or weeks? We get into it in the show.
Randhawa has also been busy writing a book called “The Blake Street Bombers,” which will be a biography of each slugger combined in one place, based on exclusive interviews with Dante Bichette, Ellis Burks, Vinny Castilla, and Larry Walker, spanning their entire careers. The book will be available on November 18 through Amazon.
In another part of our exclusive talk with Randhawa, we will talk about some of his favorite moments in putting the book together, including some of his most memorable interviews. In that episode, we will also chat about his passion for spreading the word about why Walker should be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame (#WalkerHOF) in this his final season of eligibility from the voting members. We will share that episode later this week.
For now, however, we’re going to dive into the present and future of the Rockies in our latest podcast. We dive into the recent roster moves with Randhawa as well as look ahead to 2020. Should Rockies fans be excited about the upcoming season or will it just be more of the same we saw in 2019?
