Fernando Tatis, Jr. had a moment but he’s not better than the Rockies’ Trevor Story.

I’m glad he enjoyed his moment, pictured above. This was his second homer of the shortened 2020 campaign, while Story matched that total in this series alone. And Story just kept bringing the highlights throughout the weekend.
He finished the series 5-for-11 with a pair of home runs and RBI, plus four runs. That’s all on offense and doesn’t mention at least four defensive plays that deserve SportsCenter Top 10 status.
The entire weekend, however, was a cacophony of praise for his counterpart … the one of a whole 93 games played. Even Jenny Cavnar and Cory Sullivan of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain couldn’t help themselves during the pregame show for the Friday night Home Opener at Coors Field.
I get it, the shiny new toy gets the most playtime, ask Sheriff Woody. This, however, should not shroud your view of the greatness that resides at 20th and Blake. And no, I don’t mean the view from and beyond that behemoth of a scoreboard in left either.
I know a lot of people will cite the number of games played by Tatis against me as this being an unfair argument. So I will concentrate on Story’s rookie year of 2016 and Statcast from Baseball Savant to even things out.
