Game week approaches…
The excitement builds as we’re now 4 days away from the first game of spring training. Thursday March 4th the Diamondbacks and Rockies meet at Tucson Electric Park. Friday the Rockies will play split squad games on the road against the Angels and Giants, both at 1:05pm. The Rockies will play their first home game of spring training at Hi Corbett Field on Saturday March 6th against the Brewers.
Rockies beat writer Jim Armstrong writes a nice piece in this morning’s Denver Post on our “humble” Rockies being a quiet bunch. Here’s a quote from Rockies manager Jim Tracy from the article.
“It’s not necessary to create bulletin-board fodder for other clubs. We recognize who we are, and we go about our business accordingly. And through the course of our actions, that’s when people walk away from you shaking their heads and saying, ‘Boy, they’re awfully good.’ “
There are a couple of articles by Sarah Trotto, of the Arizona Daily Star on the Rockies. One article discusses the optimism the Rockies have about the 2010 season and the other article talks to the Rockies president Keli McGregor and what he and the Rockies will miss about spring training in Tucson and what they look forward to in their new home next season in Scottsdale.
