Colorado Rockies podcast: Here come the Mets … and the cold
By Kevin Henry
In our latest edition of the Rox Pile Rockies Report, a Colorado Rockies-focused podcast, we sit down to look back at the series against the San Francisco Giants and ahead to what could well be a very cold, very wet, and very in flux weekend series against the New York Mets in Denver.
We look back and look ahead in this edition of our Colorado Rockies podcast
Thanks to a three-run, eighth-inning outburst on Wednesday afternoon at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies were finally able to snap a 12-game losing streak to the San Francisco Giants with a 5-3 win. The comeback was highlighted by C.J. Cron’s National League-leading 10th home run of the season and was fueled by the Rockies playing a “clean game,” meaning the team had no errors and issued just two walks on the day. We discuss why those low numbers matter so much for the Rockies this season.
We also look ahead to what will be a test with the New York Mets coming to town. Only the Los Angeles Dodgers have started the season with a better record in the NL than the Mets, who are facing issues with injuries in their rotation. We take a look at what that might mean for the series.
Of course, with any mention of the weekend series against the Mets comes a mention of the weather and what is being predicted in terms of the temperatures and precipitation. With the Rockies placing starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela on the 15-day injured list with a lower back strain, could Thursday’s off day and any weather-related issues this weekend help the Rockies work around Senzatela’s absence? We look at the possibilities, as well as what the schedule might look like if there are any postponements in the series.
