Raimel Tapia of the Colorado Rockies

Colorado’s collection of young talent was on full display last year, from Raimel Tapia getting a chance to showcase his skills in a full-time role to the final weekend of the season when Sam Hilliard hit a memorable home run against Milwaukee’s Josh Hader.

Speaking of Tapia, his stance and swing can be described a number of ways, but it certainly seems to be a work of art, as Paumi alluded to in this illustration.

There was also plenty of excitement around Colorado as top prospect Brendan Rodgers made his long-awaited debut this season.

And, even in September when the Rockies were well out of the playoff race, there was still plenty of excitement around the fan base when Colorado swept the San Diego Padres at Coors Field.
