Any efforts to reconsider this long-held bias are welcome, of course, and especially for the Hall and guys like Larry Walker and Todd Helton.There have been lots of weird ballparks that rendered lots of unique advantages over baseball’s history. Why is Coors Field the one where people want the games and stats to count less? Hopefully DRC+ will help us to keep digging in on that question.Is third base passing first base as baseball’s power position? | ESPNSam Miller poses a question that is relevant to the Rockies in more than one way. Yes, Nolan Arenado appears in the photo accompanying the article. Yes Harold Baines Jersey , Ian Desmond is the Rockies’ first baseman. Those two yeses make the answer “yes” to the question posed by Miller, at least in Denver. Now just imagine what the Rockies lineup would look like if they had a throwback power first baseman to go along with their generational third baseman.Mets, Others Involved In J.T. Realmuto Market | MLB Trade RumorsBuried in this long roundup is a note about the Rockies and their potential interest in Miami’s star catcher. They have “checked in,” insofar as that tells us anything. Unfortunately the heat on Realmuto probably drives up the cost in a trade for a Rockies franchise already reluctant to deal premium prospects.Colorado Rockies: Will there be little movement during Winter Meetings? | Rox PileThe Rockies need to make some moves, but Aaron Hurt suggests the moves might not be coming soon. That seems about right, especially because the question of Arenado’s future will hang over any decisions and might slow things down initially. ST. LOUIS (AP) Jose Martinez is making the most of his limited opportunities.Martinez sliced an opposite-field pinch-hit single to the right-center field gap off Wade Davis with one out in the ninth inning, driving in the tying and go-ahead runs and lifting the St. Louis Cardinals over the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Thursday.”Trying to put the ball in play, trying just to get one run, that’s the most important thing,” Martinez said.Greg Garcia singled with one out against Davis (1-4) and took third on a single by rookie Harrison Bader.Bader stole second Chris Sale Jersey , and Martinez singled on a high fastball, giving the Cardinals their ninth walk-off win this season.It was the first career walk-off RBI for Martinez, whose playing time has decreased since Mike Shildt became the interim manager on July 14.”It’s a great teammate. That’s probably one of the best compliments I can give Jose,” Shildt said. ”He’s still getting opportunities. He’s not getting quite as many, but he’s determined to make the most of them and showed up ready to take a really quality at-bat with a nice plan.”Davis has a career-high five blown saves in 36 chances.”I left it over the plate,” he said. ”A couple of line drive hits there. Obviously, the stolen base didn’t help either.”Colorado, which began the day one game back for the NL’s second wild card, lost three of four at the Cardinals. The Rockies had been seeking to tie the franchise record of nine straight series without a series loss but instead lost a series for the first time since dropping two of three at San Francisco from June 26-28.”We’re in every game now, which is good Rusney Castillo Jersey , and we’ve won most of them,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. ”We’ve got to continue to pitch well. If we do that we’ll be fine.”Chasen Shreve (3-2), acquired from the New York Yankees on Saturday, pitched a perfect ninth in his second appearance for the Cardinals.”This is a focused group that’s really dedicated to playing good baseball and to moving this thing forward and to win games and to put us in position even further than where we are now,” Shildt said. ”This team wants to play in the playoffs.”St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas allowed two runs – one earned – and seven hits in seven innings. Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela gave up one run and five hits in six innings.After the Cardinals loaded the bases in the sixth, Senzatela struck out Bader on a curveball in the dirt with an 0-2 count.Tyler O’Neill put St. Louis ahead with a sacrifice fly in the third. Gerardo Parra had a tying single in the fourth, and Colorado went ahead when Ian Desmond hit a bouncer to the third-base side, and Mikolas made an off-balance throw that hit the tarp in foul territory in right field. Desmond was credited with a single, and Nolan Arenado came home from third on the error.MAKING A SPLASHO’Neill made a running catch against the wall right-field wall in the first inning to rob Arenado of an extra-base hit and a diving catch of a liner off of Trevor Story’s bat in the fourth.”If I can help on the defensive side of the ball that’s what I’m going to do,” O’Neill said. ”I was just able to make a couple of plays out there to help the boys get the game going.”TRAINING ROOMRockies: 2B DJ LeMahieu (left oblique strain) was reinstated from the 10-day DL and 2B Garrett Hampson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.Cardinals: OF Marcell Ozuna left in the fifth inning because of discomfort in one of his left toes. 2B Kolten Wong (left knee inflammation) began an injury rehabilitation assignment at Class A Peoria and is expected to join the team this weekend in Pittsburgh.UP NEXTRockies: RHP German Marquez (9-8 Brock Holt Jersey , 4.82 ERA) starts Friday’s opener of a three-game series at Milwaukee. He is 4-0 with a 3.03 ERA in his last five starts.Cardinals: RHP John Gant (3-4, 3.49 ERA) starts a three-game series on Friday at Pittsburgh, where RHP Chris Archer (3-5, 4.31 ERA) is to make his Pirates debut after his acquisition from Tampa Bay. Gant is coming off his shortest outing of the season, lasting 4 1/3 innings in a 5-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Sunday night.—
