Final Thoughts on Trevor Story possibly returning to the Colorado Rockies
Most Colorado Rockies fans were probably hoping to see that the Rockies would be in the top five teams but at this point, it’s doubtful. There was a report just before the lockout that the Rockies “would like to try” to bring Story back.
Look at the language in that. That’s, oftentimes, the key to understanding rumors. Of course, the Rockies would love to have Story back. But will they spend the money? Probably not.
The Rockies “would like to try” to try to get Shohei Ohtani in a trade from the Angels. Well, so does every other team but it’s not happening.
Also too, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post said that there hasn’t been recent contact between the Rockies and Story.
There’s always a chance that he could come back as some of the boxes would be checked (particularly the camaraderie aspect) but Story was not happy with the Rockies front office at the trade deadline and he said he wants to win and that’s “at the top” of his list. That’s not happening in Colorado in 2022 or, probably, 2023.
So unless his market plummets and he has to sign a one-year deal to re-enter the market next offseason, he almost certainly won’t be re-signing with the Colorado Rockies and will be moving on to another team for 2022, much to the dismay of Rockies fans.
