On this episode of the Rox Pile Rockies Report, my co-expert Kevin Henry and I discuss a potpourri of musings with the Colorado Rockies.

We discuss the start of the series with the Mets and the Rockies third win of the season on the road. Their road trip to face the Mets and Pirates is the first time that the Rockies have played in the Eastern Time Zone since July 28, 2019, when they faced Cincinnati.

On Monday, Austin Gomber turned in the longest start of his major league career as he pitched into the 9th inning. Carlos Estevez locked down the game for the Rockies and we discuss how successful he has been lately.

We also discuss Luke Mullins’ recent article for us and how it is a bit baffling that it’s the case.

You can also hear Rockies manager Bud Black, in his own words, about how the Rockies are trying to combat the “Coors Field hangover.” Black has shut down talk about it before but after Monday’s game, he told the media that the Rockies are trying to combat it.
