Follow along as Purple Row sims the season opener!
Forget about everything you’re hearing in the news and join Purple Row for a few blissful hours of Opening Day baseball. Two young pitchers in Chris Paddack and Jon Gray look to get their respective clubs off on the right foot to start the season. Paddack took the league by storm in 2019, pitching 140 2⁄3 innings and going 9-7 with a 3.33 ERA and 153 strikeouts. Gray looks to build off of a very solid 2019 where he went 11-8 with an ERA of 3.84 and 150 strikeouts.
The Rockies lineup comes in healthy and strong as ever. We’ll be watching to see how quickly the team can put the offseason behind them and get a W on the board.
As a longtime Rockies fan and self-proclaimed baseball geek, I’m very excited to join the Purple Row staff and report on this season’s action (both the simulated and eventually real games)!
