Join members of The Denver Post's sports department for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look and discussion about the Colorado Rockies -- and some Opening Day eats as well!
The Post is joining with the Wynkoop Brewery to offer a breakfast discussion on the Rockies season, the outlook for the 2014 MLB season, or anything else you might care to ask. Among those expected to attend:
Cory Sullivan, an outfielder from 2005-2008, was a key component of the Rockies' "Todd and the Toddlers" group that represented a watershed moment in franchise history. Sullivan recently joined Root Sports and will work as pregame and postgame analyst.
Ryan Spilborghs, a fan favorite during his time with the Rockies and a key member of the 2007 World Series team, is now part of Root Sports providing analysis for Rockies pre-game and post-game shows. Spilborghs, 34, has a variety of media experience, including appearing in car commercials and hosting "Spillin' The Beans," a comedy short for the Rockies' website. He played last year for Japan's Seibu Lions, chronicling his experience for The Denver Post in a series of popular blogs.
Troy E. Renck has covered the Colorado Rockies and Major League Baseball since 1996. He joined The Denver Post in 2002, working as the Rockies’ beat writer. In 2005, he became the paper’s national baseball writer while continuing to cover the Rockies. Renck has won more than 20 local and national writing awards since graduating from the University of Colorado journalism school with honors in 1993. Since at The Denver Post, he has written roughly 3,500 articles and blogs, while covering nine World Series and eight All-Star Games. He is a past president of the local chapter of Baseball Writers Association of America. He is the author of “Baseball’s 100 Greatest Personalities, ’’ “Baseball’s Greatest Rivalries’’ and a compilation of his work is included in The Denver Post’s “A Magical Season,’’ chronicling the Rockies’ 2007 run to the World Series.
Patrick Saunders, a third-generation Colorado native, is in his second stint covering the Rockies for The Denver Post. After covering the Broncos from 1998-2004, he worked the Rockies beat from 2005-09, helping chronicle "Rocktober" in 2007, as well as the team's playoff run in 2009. After a two-year stint as The Post's online sports editor, he rejoined the Rockies beat in 2012. Saunders is a graduate of Arvada High School and attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, earning degrees in U.S. history and secondary education. He later earned a master's degree in journalism from the University of Colorado. Saunders and his wife, Nancy, live in Englewood with their golden retrievers, Shelby and Ginger.
