In 30 Teams, 30 Posts, I write a post about every MLB team in some way in the lead-up to the beginning of the 2015 season. Previous installments can be found here. Today, the Colorado Rockies.
A is for Altitude, of which Denver is quite high.
B is for Blackmon, who had six hits in a game, oh my!
C is for CarGo, coming off a down year.
D is for Dickerson, CarGo’s outfield peer.
E is for Eddie Butler, of whom I know little, see?
F is for Fourth, in the NL West they will be.
G is for Galarragga, who had quite the hitting niche.
H is for Hawkins, one final year to pitch.
I is for Isotopes, home of their AAA players.
J is for Justin, of the Canadian Eh-ers?
K is for Kendrick, formerly of the Phillies.
L is for Low April temperatures, which can give you the willies.
M is for the Mahieu, that comes after Le.
N is for Nolan the Arenado, not Ryan the P.
O is for Ottavino‘s beginning and end.
P is for Power-hitting, which the humidor tries to mend.
Q is for Questions, of which the Rockies might have many.
R is for Rex Brothers, not as tall as Brad Penny.
S is for Stubbs, who was not a Sooner.
T is for Tulo, who’s trade is ever rumor.
U is for Uniforms, occasionally purple.
V is for Vinny Castilla, because nothing rhymes with purple.
W is for Weiss, the Rockies’ skipper.
X is for Xylophone, there are instruments that are hipper.
Y is for Ynoa, Rafael to be exact.
Z is for Zobrist, an A just to keep the alphabet intact.
Tomorrow: Texas Rangers.
