A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

Rockies Foiled in their Attempt at Creating an All Former QB Major League Team

Russell Wilson, popular QB for the Wisconsin football team and Rockies minor leaguer, has decided to forgo his baseball career in an attempt to make it as a quarterback in the NFL.  Wilson was the Rockies 4th round pick in the 2010 draft.  He hit .228 in low Class A in 2011, so the big leagues in baseball was probably not in his future anyway.  The biggest problem is his size.  He is not the ideal size for an NFL quarterback, but that doesn't mean he couldn't succeed it just means he will have to go through more hoops to succeed.

This now means that there are only 3 former BCS college quarterbacks in the Rockies system.  Todd Helton from Tennessee, Seth Smith from Ole Miss, and 2010 1st round pick Kyle Parker from Clemson.  Maybe this means that Rockies scouts can stop watching football games when scouting and start checking out the baseball games going on.

In case you haven't voted for the Rock Star third baseman, you have less than 2 days left.  Thanx for reading.

I think its pretty clear that Vinny C is the ultimate rock star third baseman... I was pleased when I voted and saw nearly everyone else was on the same page as me... Vinny C rocked it for sure in Colorado... In Tampa Bay - not so much...
