SPORTS:

ROCKIES-WRAPUP

DENVER — The immediate picture for the Colorado Rockies looks grim: a slumping offense that couldn’t support solid pitching led to a quick end of Rocktober. The larger view, now that’s one third baseman Nolan Arenado prefers to take with him into the offseason. By Pat Graham. SENT: 800 words, photos.

ROCKIES-LUMBER SLUMBER

DENVER — For once, the Colorado Rockies head into the offseason searching for more pop at the plate to go with excellent pitching, not the other way around.

BRONCOS RESET

ENGLEWOOD — Coach Vance Joseph said Monday “everything’s being considered right now” when asked if he’s contemplating lineup changes or taking over the play-calling from defensive coordinator Joe Woods. “It’s all being considered. We’re still watching the tape to figure out what’s the best course of action, but it’s all being considered,” Joseph said a day after the Broncos’ 34-16 loss to the New York Jets in which they allowed 512 yards, 343 on the ground.
