Unfortunately due to the slow start for the Gold Sox, fans knew the moves were coming. And unfortunatly that included fan favorite Jayson Philmon (.354, .446, .589, 10HR before trade .449, .526, .833, 8HR since the trade) The Sox started June by trading SP Tomas Mejia to the Fargo Nordiques getting 24 year old reliver Julian Coasta and 24 year old first baseman Dave Land in return.

The Best and Worst Transactions in GM Brandon Zima’s Career

While he is held in high regard by the Colorado fans he certainly has been far from a perfect General Manager. Mr. Brandon Zima has yet to bring the Gold Sox to the playoffs or nonetheless, a winning season. Now in his third season in the CBL Zima has already made moves that have brought excitement to the young franchises fans and plenty that have left the faithful scratching their heads. Will it all ever payoff for Zima and the Gold Sox? Who knows. For now, let’s go over the best and worst moves that the team has made since Zima took office during the 2018 offseason. #5th Best – Signed Clayton Kershaw to a one year 900k contract It has been three winters in a row now that the Brandon Zima and the Colorado Gold Sox have been able to come to terms with pitcher Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was t...

Prospects to Watch

[Author’s Note: This is not a list of who I think the defacto best prospects are, but rather players who are worth keeping an eye on for the remainder of the season.] Young players in today’s game are the equivalent of Gold, consistently gaining value as the rest of the market continues to be out of whack. Getting six cost-controlled years of team control is a huge advantage for a team, and as such most teams are always working to develop their own young talent. Today, we’ll take a look at two interesting prospects to get a better glimpse of the future of the CBL. Others may be profiled in the future. 1B Griffin Keller, Vancouver Canadians Organization (AAA level) Originally drafted in the first round by the Syracuse Orange, Keller was traded to the Vancouver Canadians on...

Colorado Gold Sox Roster Overview

Starting Pitching Randall Delgado is expected to be back in the Gold Sox’s starting rotation come April 2016. The team is looking for the 29 year old righty to make great strides this year and bring his ERA down to under four. Doug Fister and Clayton Kershaw were two of Colorado’s big signings this offseason so it is widely believed that they will both start the year in the rotation. Kershaw struggled in Minneapolis and Traverse City in 2018 but had a very strong 2017 season. The Gold Sox are hopeful that Kershaw will pitch like he once did and emerge as the club’s ace. Fister is on a 2 year deal and got lit up his first preseason start. Gold Sox skipper Tommy Shields says that this isn’t a huge concern of his. “It was his first time out there since last season and he was more worried abou...

Zima fires Rose and promotes Tommy Shields

Just a few days after being hired as the new General Manager of Colorado Brandon Zima made is his first moves in firing manager Pete Rose Jr. Mr. Zima followed the decision with a short press conference. “It’s a move for the future of the team. We are upset that we could not continue a partnership with Pete [Rose Jr.] but we really think that a new manager is our first step forward in building a better Gold Sox.” The Gold Sox finished in 4th place in the HL West under Rose Jr. who led the team to a 66-96 record. “There is no reason this team should’ve finished thirty games back.” Zima said. Very shortly after the press conference it was announced that Kanab Miners manager, Tommy Shields, will get the call up from AAA and become the new CBL skipper. Shiel...

Introducing the Colorado Gold Sox

Denver, Colorado – After a four year absence, professional baseball is returning to the Rocky Mountain State. Colorado has announced the details of their new team. Nickname: Gold Sox The nickname is an obvious homage to the state’s gold-mining history. Beginning in 1859, 10 years after the California gold rush, the rapid population growth in Colorado led to them becoming a territory in 1861, before gaining statehood in 1876. Logo:   “We really like the logo,” team owner Jorge Lopez said at the press conference. “It’s simple, but the mountain in the C is a wonderful touch.” Uniforms: “They look nice,” recently acquired and Colorado fan-favorite Carlos Gonzalez said. “It’s just nice to be back here in Colorado. But I do l...
