Minor league baseball is living up to major league expectations in Albuquerque. The Isotopes have fulfilled their duties to the Colorado Rockies in a big way this season. The big three standout, but bullpen turnover and rehab assignments also highlight the crossover. The big three, Brandon Barnes, Ben Paulsen and Chad Bettis all started the […]

A Childhood Dream Come True: Steven Leonard

19 years ago, in the activity room of our pre-school in Monument, Colorado, I met a fellow three-year old named Steven Leonard. Does that name sound familiar? It should.

A song? A song! In the spirit of the Colorado Renaissance Festival (who have a tendency to break into random song with ad-libbed lyrics or limericks), Throwback Thursday (rebranded as #TBT), and the Rockies recent redux of a two game sweep at the hands of the Houston Astros, we will sing a song together and […]
