It would seem like the Rockies are trying to “throwback” to 2007 with today’s signing of Aaron Cook to a minor league deal. Aaron Cook, along with Manny Corpas, Yorvit Torrealba and Jeff Francis, were all key’s to the 2007 Rockies run to the World Series. All of them have been signed within the last year to the Rockies system.
Today’s signing of Aaron Cook came after the Philies released him on Tuesday. Cook spent last season pitching for the Red Sox, getting a 58% groundball rate outta the offense while on the mound.
