Things have not gone according to the hopes the Colorado Rockies had coming out of the All-Star break. Winning the final three series before the Midsummer Classic was great, but dropping five of seven games after the break has brought many Rockies fans to the point of apathy as the MLB trade deadline approaches.
Shrugging of shoulders and changing of channels hit a high mark on Thursday night as the Colorado Rockies opened a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Denver by dropping a 13-0 decision. Outside of four hits from Brendan Rodgers and a scoreless inning on the mound from catcher Brian Serven, there was little to cheer about if you were wearing purple.
So what’s left for Colorado Rockies fans in the rest of the 2022 schedule? We talked about the possibilities on our latest podcast.
It’s likely to be a quiet MLB trade deadline for the Rockies as the team is expected to hang on to first baseman C.J. Cron, reliever Daniel Bard, and other players who could be considered assets by other teams looking to make a postseason push. Shortstop José Iglesias and reliever Alex Colomé could be two players on the move at the trade deadline, but even that possibility seems lower than expected given the history of the Rockies to make trades.
So what is a fanbase to do? That’s one of the questions we discussed on our most recent episode of the Rox Pile Rockies Report, which you can hear by clicking here, or simply hitting play below.
In this episode, we discuss what could, should, and likely will at the MLB trade deadline, as well as the impact of attendance at Coors Field with fans from other teams filling the seats really means for the Rockies and their urgency to get something done.
