Colorado Rockies podcast: Hall of Fame voting and what comes next

On the latest Colorado Rockies podcast, we dive into the updated look at the potential path for Todd Helton to Cooperstown, some of the latest Rockies news, and make predictions about what might happen in MLB and with the Rockies after the current Major League Baseball lockout ends.

From Cooperstown to Coors Field, we cover a wide range of topics in the latest podcast discussing the Colorado Rockies

In this episode, we welcome David Hill, co-expert from Rox Pile’s sister site at Call to the Pen, which covers all MLB teams. We ask Hill for his thoughts on former Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton as he continues to make progress in his quest for baseball immortality as a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Is Helton on a path with BBWAA voters similar to Scott Rolen and Larry Walker? We discuss that idea and what it could mean for Helton’s candidacy.

We stay on the Hall of Fame path and talk about which players might make it into Cooperstown with this year’s vote. David Ortiz seems like a virtual lock, despite overcoming some interesting obstacles in the minds of some voters.

Of course, there is plenty to talk about with the Rockies as well. What will the team do once the lockout is over? Hill provides an interesting thought on which free agent the Rockies may sign and why, and we also discuss what it will take for new general manager Bill Schmidt to have a successful offseason in the minds of the fans. Is it even possible?

Can Colorado do enough this offseason to fare better in the National League West than in the seasons since their last postseason appearance in 2018? What will it take to make that happen … and how long will it take? We discuss the possibilities.
