Story's pursuit of rookie homer record for April on hold

DENVER (AP) One less game in April for Trevor Story. One less opportunity to match - maybe even break - a rookie homer record for the month. The game between Colorado and Pittsburgh on Thursday was postponed because of rain and snow. And while Story wasn't in the starting lineup, the Rockies shortstop could've entered as a pinch hitter and he certainly does have the flair for the...

They’ve Adjusted to Trevor Story

They say you can’t predict baseball, but that’s nonsense. You can’t predict all of baseball, but you can definitely predict some of baseball. One of those predictions that any one of us could’ve made: There was no way Trevor Story was going to keep that up. It was so obvious that even saying it would’ve been empty. Pointless. The prediction was essentially implied by the...

Nolan Arenado Looks Like He’s Up to Something

We’ve gotten to see many sides of Nolan Arenado over the past two years. The maker of ridiculous defensive plays. The hitter of a multitude of home runs. The effusive trotter of the base paths. With regard to his plate discipline, however, Arenado hasn’t changed much since he got to the majors. To call him a “free swinger” doesn’t really do him justice: between 2014 and...

Trevor Story and Sample Size

Trevor Story hit another homer last night, his league-leading eighth home run of the season. That’s eight home runs in just 13 games, totaling 59 plate appearances. He also hit a double, giving him 12 extra base hits on the year; Josh Donaldson is the only other player in the majors in double-digits, and he has 10. At this point, it’s pretty clear that, while still a player with...

Don’t test the arm of Gerardo Parra; Jay Bruce tested it and failed

A huge key to being a big league outfielder is having a strong arm. Colorado Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra showed his off Monday night in Cincinnati, and the Reds’ Jay Bruce was his latest victim. Bruce sent a ball into the gap in left-center in the fifth inning, and at worst, Bruce had a stand-up double. But the ball got away, and Parra seemed to have misplayed the ball off...

Jake Arrieta’s dominance reaching more historic levels

The “friendly confines” of Wrigley Field have been just that for Jake Arrieta. Conversely, facing the Cubs ace at the old park on the north side of Chicago is quite the unpleasant experience. On Saturday, it was the Colorado Rockies who were rudely greeted by the wrath of the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner. Arrieta went eight shutout innings in a 6-2 Cubs victory — making...
