This past weekend, an idea was hatched after seeing the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres shortstops.
We all here in Colorado got to enjoy our Colorado Rockies continue their torrid streak to begin the 2020 season this past weekend, where the Rox and their homegrown rotation may have even ratcheted up the dominance. However, the player I believe who caught the eye of all was a position player who is criminally underrated.
The idea for this “story” hit me at this moment: I even have receipts on this very lightbulb moment:
But to be clear, it wasn’t just because I dig the long ball (even though we all do). It is because this game, no matter how disappointing the ending was, was a statement game for Trevor Story and the best left-side of the infield in Major League Baseball. They did everything as you can see here:
This though is not their case. This is going to be a deep dive into the case for Story himself and why he deserves all that has been handed to the second-generation star who resides in the same division, Fernando Tatis Jr., otherwise known as the player who burst our bubbles for a night for one moment.
