Let’s be honest, most of us wouldn’t think much of baseball or Colorado Rockies Today while we spend time with friends and family, we eat way too much food, we watch football, and we give thanks. The MLB Winter Meetings aren’t for another two weeks, and while the real stoves are hot with the food cooking, the virtual transaction stove is pretty cool right now. The Rocky Mountains are also associated with rumors Cody Bellinger and Brandon Nimmo as new prospect center players, questions about what general manager Bill Schmidt will do to build up his team before spring training, and they Start making tough decisions Like the split from Ryan Field and Garrett Hampson, all the fans at home can do is bide their time until The world wakes up in the spring.
Thanksgiving is a day to reflect on what we are thankful for. Here in Purple Row We’re back Gather around our tables this Thanksgiving Day and load our plates with turkey, French fries, and stuffed hamAnd think of what we could all be thankful for with the Rockies.
“I am absolutely grateful for the opportunities the Rockies have given me over the years, and grateful for the wonderful connections and club staff. They make the world go round for us!”
“I am grateful for the colleagues and friends I made as part of the Purple Row, which is there because of the Rocky Mountains. Nor is Hilton Burgers bad.”
“I’m thankful the Rockies have them, because I’m old enough to remember when there was no (major league) baseball in Denver.”
“I am grateful for the great City Connect uniform. I instantly loved the jersey and knew I had to get one, and the hat has grown on me too.”
“I am thankful for the new balanced schedules. Fewer matches against Dodgers And the Padres should be a good thing for Colorado. In addition, it will give fans more opportunity to see teams and players from across the league.”
“I am grateful to have the Rocky Mountains and call it Coors Field home. Although it may seem more like the best bar in Denver than home to a competitive MLB team, I still love it there. It’s a happy place with lots of memories and I hope it makes Toglia and Tovar with happy times.
I’m thankful for the Rockies wearing purple. It’s a pretty underused color, though I wish they used it more as an accent. They need purple socks, hats, batting helmets, and a purple stripe on the whites of the house.”
“I am thankful for Ezequiel Tovar, Zac Veen, and (finally) a sense of hope. The past few years have been challenging for Rockies fans, but these farm prospects have given fans something to get excited about. It will be amazing to watch Veen’s sheer courage.”
I want to start by saying how incredibly grateful I am for the opportunity to write for Purple Row these past two years. Our amazing team of writers and editors here on the site have become great friends and colleagues to me for which I will always be grateful. I’m also grateful to all of you – our readers – who stuck with us through the difficult times and budget cuts this year. 2022 has been a tough year, but being able to write and create content for this site is something that keeps me going even through the toughest days.
On the baseball side, I’m grateful for the up-and-coming Rocky farm system. Having been ranked as one of the worst in the league, the Rockies now have several very exciting prospects in the MLB Top 100 and even more great, unknown prospects ranked through our affiliates. I think it’s going to be very interesting to watch these guys make their way to the big leagues over the next few years.
Feel free to share something Rockies-related you’re grateful for down in the comments. As we move into the holiday season, I think we should try to spread more cheer and goodwill than usual to beat the winter darkness. I wish everyone who celebrates a very happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a holiday closely associated with football, so here’s a football-related Rockies article for you to enjoy from Nathaniel Sunshine at Rox Pile. Todd Hilton was best known for being the starting quarterback for the University of Tennessee before a knee injury brought in Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning to replace him. If Hilton had never been injured and made his way to the NFL, how would he have made it?
