The other shoe has dropped.
The Rockies front offices big salary moving plan of bundling up Dex and a PTBNL and sending them to Houston for a couple of nobodies nobody wants has culminated in the monetary value of putting it all on black 32.
Colorado has picked up the replacement for Helton and his name is Justin Morneau.
Yep, that Morneau.
The very same guy that hit .260 last season between being a Pirate and finishing out his time with the Twins. Morneau is 32 and hasn’t had a +20 HR season in four years.
What’s worse is he can’t seem to swing at pitches slung from southpaws.
His .207 average against lefties last year was bad, even for him.
The trade of injury prone Fowler was supposed to bring in a big time player, but Morneau will arrive with bedpan in tow as he’s battled his own injuries in herniated disc’s and concussions.
