With Christmas upon us, 2021 is just one week away and there are three fans that Colorado Rockies fans should hope for entering 2021.

First of all, on behalf of all of us here at Rox Pile, we wish you a Merry Christmas and hopefully, you can enjoy time with your family and friends, whether that be in person or virtually.

In the spirit of Christmas, as a Colorado Rockies fan, there are plenty of things that you are probably hoping that you will receive in 2021 in regards to the Rockies but we will discuss the three biggest things that you should want to see soon.

The Rockies get more MLB depth

Of all the issues the Rockies have right now, that is probably the biggest, overarching problem with the team: they don’t have a ton of players that have played MLB-caliber baseball in the past couple of seasons. Their lack of depth in the pitching department has been evident both in the starting pitching staff (especially when injuries have occurred) and in the bullpen.

After German Marquez, Kyle Freeland, and Antonio Senzatela, the Rockies starting pitching staff is a question mark. That’s because of the lack of depth they have there and injuries, as Jon Gray has had several stints on the injured list in recent seasons.
