On Tuesday night, the Colorado Rockies will play the penultimate home game of the 2021 season, facing off against the Washington Nationals. Trevor Story will start at shortstop and bat third in the game. Will it be one of the last times Story takes the field from the Colorado dugout?
In our latest podcast, we discuss Trevor Story, his future with the Colorado Rockies, and what has been a disappointing season for him statistically.
Story enters Tuesday night’s game going just 4-for-24 at the plate with one RBI during the previous seven games of the current homestand (one against the Nationals, and three each against the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants). It’s part of a September slump where Story is slashing just .235/.316/.494, numbers below his career slash line of .271/.339/.522.
With Story’s numbers tailing off at what could be the end of his six-year career in Colorado, will that impact his value in the free agent market? We discuss the possibility in the podcast you can hear by clicking below.
Additionally, we talk about the potential for Colorado to still lose 90 games in 2021. While it would take dropping each of the team’s final five games, yes, it’s still a possibility. Would a 90-loss season sting any more or less than an 87- or 88-loss season for Rockies fans? We debate the psychological aspect of the number.
Also, as discussed in this article, there are plenty of things that individual Rockies players and the team can accomplish before the end of the season. Which ones are the most likely? We break down some of the possibilities.
