In our latest Colorado Rockies podcast, we talk about which players we would cast a ballot for in the current Baseball Hall of Fame voting cycle, as well as some interesting thoughts about Trevor Story potentially ending up with the New York Yankees once the current Major League Baseball lockout ends.
From Todd Helton’s Hall of Fame chances to Trevor Story ending up in the Bronx, we cover a wide range of topics in our latest Colorado Rockies podcast.
We start this podcast’s conversation with talk about former Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story and discussion out of New York that he could end up with the New York Yankees after the lockout ends and MLB transactions can begin again. Ken Davidoff of The New York Post has predicted that Story will sign with the Yankees for five years and $110 million. That is one year and $30 million less than Javier Báez signed with the Detroit Tigers and far less than Corey Seager’s 10-year, $325 million deal with the Texas Rangers.
So the question becomes why someone would think Story was worth that little this offseason. Is it because of concerns about Story’s injury from last season or the questions from around the nation about what effect not playing at Coors Field might mean for his offense (despite that notion already being shattered by DJ LeMahieu and Nolan Arenado in their days after playing for the Rockies)?
That’s part of our discussion, which leads into who we would vote for if we had a ballot for this year’s Baseball Hall of Fame. Noah Yingling and I both reveal our 10-player ballots, discuss the differences, and also detail why some players who have a history with performance-enhancing drugs still may make their way to Cooperstown and baseball immortality inside the Hall of Fame.
