The Colorado Rockies are through their first 10 games of the 2021 season, and our most recent podcast takes a look at the team’s early successes and struggles.

With a 3-7 record after suffering a three-game sweep in San Francisco against the Giants, the Rockies have a day off on Monday before heading to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers. The defending World Champions took three of four games from the Rockies in Denver to open the season.

But that is what lies ahead. In this episode, we not only talk about that, but also what we’ve seen from the Rockies on the mound and at the plate since the season began.

Sure, there have been some good moments in 2021 (we’re looking at you, Ryan McMahon and Jon Gray), but there are also some concerning signs in the early stages of the season when it comes to Charlie Blackmon at the plate and the number of walks being surrendered by Rockies pitching, among other things.

There have also been plenty of injuries to talk about in the early part of the schedule as well, including the most recent to Chris Owings that landed the player who has started the season 8-for-15 at the plate on the injured list. With Alan Trejo getting his first big league call-up and Brendan Rodgers getting closer and closer to a return, what will happen with the Rockies roster over the next few days? We give our thoughts.

There’s also plenty to discuss with the lineup as a shake-up may be coming. Garrett Hampson looked to have a hold on the leadoff spot, but went 0-for-10 in the three-game series in San Francisco. With Hampson and Blackmon struggling and McMahon showing more consistency at the plate, could the order look different in Los Angeles than it has in the previous 10 games?
