In our newest Colorado Rockies podcast, we take on the holidays, including an airing of grievances with a tip of the cap to Festivus and what we would put on our wish list from Santa Claus when it comes to the happenings at 20th and Blake.
Our latest Colorado Rockies podcast takes on the holidays, including what we would love to see after the lockout from the franchise
Like several MLB teams, the Colorado Rockies were not active before the MLB lockout kicked in on December 1. Rockies fans, however, shouldn’t take the inactivity before the lockout as a sign of what is to come once transactions can be put into place again after the lockout comes to an end (whenever that might be).
What’s one grievance we must air? The handling of Jon Gray before he left the Rockies to sign a four-year, $56 million deal with the Texas Rangers. Trust us, there’s also more that we shake our collective head about when it comes to the Rockies.
Enough about the grievances though. It is the holiday season and a time for hope, and that’s what we focus on as well during this podcast.
One of the biggest hopes we have for the New Year? That the Rockies are not only active in the market, but that they share their plan with a fan base who is hungry for any morsels on what Colorado’s plan might be to get back into contention.
Can hope come from a free agent signing like Kris Bryant or Kyle Schwarber? Absolutely, but there are plenty of holes in the lineup, rotation, and bullpen that the Rockies need to fill and it will take more than one transaction to turn around Colorado’s fortunes.

We wish you all a wonderful and safe holiday season!
