The Rockies will play the first game of this 3-game series at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon at 12:20 PM. Today will mark the first time either Tyler Colvin or DJ LeMahieu will have played at Wrigley since being traded to the Rockies for Ian Stewart and Casey Weathers. The Rockies clearly won the trade, in terms of current play, when looking at the overall numbers:
TYLER COLVIN: .294 | .333 | .551
DJ LEMAHIEU: .281 | .305 | .377
IAN STEWART: .201 | .292 | .335 (out for season with wrist injury)
CASEY WEATHERS: 6.48 ERA with AA
By any stretch of the imagination the trade would be considered bright spot on Dan O’Dowd’s trading history. Colvin doesn’t really think about it though:
I haven’t really thought about (comparing the trade). I made some good friends in Chicago.
DJ is looking forward to the series in Chicago:
It’s been great having Ty here. It would be nice to go back there and keep rolling.
