FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY » : Baseball holds the expansion draft to stock the rosters of the November 17, 1992 National League's two new teams, the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. A total of 72 players are chosen. P David Nied is the 1st pick of the Rockies, while OF Nigel Wilson is selected 1st by the Marlins. The Fish take Jose Martinez with #2, while the Rocks pick vet Charlie Hayes. The best picks for Florida are #4 Trevor Hoffman, eventually packaged for Gary Sheffield; #11 Jeff Conine, who will hit 81 homers in four years; and #18 Cris Carpenter, later dealt to Texas for Robb Nen. For Colorado, they will find gold with #6 Eric Young, #10 Joe Girardi, #16 Vinny Castilla, and #18 Armando Reynoso. Picks #13 and 14 are good ones -- Andy Ashby, Brad Ausmus and Doug Bochtler -— but they'll all go to the Padres in 1993 in an ill-fated deal for pricey vet pitchers Bruce Hurst and Greg Harris. » :
At April 5, 1993 Shea Stadium, the Colorado Rockies make their NL debut, losing to the Mets by a score of 3-0. Andres Galarraga gets a pair of hits for Colorado but is thrown out in the 9th trying to stretch a single. David Nied takes the loss, giving up a homer to Bobby Bonilla.
Tommy Glavine outpitches October 3, 1993 David Nied and the Braves defeat the Rockies, 5–3, thus becoming the first National League team this century to sweep a season series from another team. Atlanta won all 13 contests between the two clubs and has won 104 overall. The Giants just miss a one-game playoff, finishing with 103 wins.
