Mets Pick Up Andrew Brown

The Rockies didn’t pick up Andrew Brown, but the Mets did and invited him to Spring Training as well.  Brown hit .232 with 5 home runs in 46 games for the Rockies last season, who claimed him of waivers from the Cardinals in 2011.  His Triple-A numbers were much better at .308/.364/.597 batting line with 24 home runs and 33 doubles.

Is it just me,or are we losing more players while gaining none?

I truly think we have a gun-shy GM (or 2). They are terrified that any deal they execute they will get the worse end of it. And based on history they are probably right. A few weeks ago Renck wrote an article that basically called out the Rockies habit of pricing their players at laughably high prices, such as what they are doing with Fowler. In the end no team wants to deal with them. The Rockies don’t get better… Read more »

Renck is so bored over at the Post this offseason that he wrote a football article yesterday. In past years I couldn’t wait til Spring Training, to see what would happen. This year I can wait. I know what’s happening.

What do you expect??? The Rockies management actually trying to get better and become a 80+ win team:) First year in 19 that I haven’t even tried to get tickets for a game.

Watching RG3 and Wilson. Rookies can make a big contribution off the bat in football. Average of 5 years from college to the pros in baseball. Is the game that much different in the pros than college baseball? Why the big difference between the sports?

I’m not a Seahawks fan. Wish Wilson had stuck with baseball. He certainly made the right choice, though.

I think baseball is much more mental than the other sports in terms of the need for individual maturity (as a player not personality). In baseball you need to learn tendencies both of your opponent and yourself and make all the required adjustments. Some guys like Trout and Harper transcend the norm, but I think for most they need to see 10000s of pro level pitches before jumping in. In regards to pitchers, I personally would take a standout college… Read more »

What konaman said. Here we are a week into 2013 and I haven’t even checked out the Rockies schedule to see what games I might want to go to. That includes the usuals like “when is opening day” and “when are the fireworks games.” Part of that is I know plenty of tickets will be available so there’s no need to plan anything. Part of it is I doubt I’ll go to more than a handful of games. What a… Read more »

My Dodger buddy just e-mailed me with the notice that spring training starts in 30+ days. I could care less. Maybe if I found my purple sunglasses I’d feel differently, but I think I threw them out when O’Dowd went to the minors to hide out. By the way, any news from camp Tulo?

As I’ve posted here several times before, I will not be going to any games this coming season. It’s my personal protest. I’ll still be a fan and watch the games on TV and hopefully contribute here at RWO on occasions. My family still doesn’t believe I’ll go through with this, so we’ll see.

I’ll be interested in seeing the attendance figures as the season rolls around.

I wonder what kind of numbers G.Stanton would put up here at altitude vs the grand canyon of Petco? How about a line up with Cargoooooo,Tulooooooo,and Giancarloooooo!Since the Marlins want to field the cheapest lineup in MLB,and we excell in stockpiling not ready for prime time[or big salary]AAAA players we should offer a 10 for one trade.Obviously we are not ever going to have pitching, so go back to the days of yesteryear and recreate the Blake St.Bombers circa 2013.Move… Read more »

Dante Bichette has the exact same philsophy (“club the opposition into submission”) which was why he was brought in by Walt Weiss.

Walt Weiss and Bichette are the only reasons I am thinking about the Rockies in 2013. If it was still Jimmer Tracy I’m afraid my attention would be Kansas City Royals. I said many times last year during the season that I have never been so unenthused by a Rockies team in my life as a fan. With all the non action this offseason I’m afraid my interest will hit rock bottom if the Rockies stink in 2013. Trade Fowler… Read more »

There’s a small part of me that really hopes that 1)De la Rosa comes back at 2010 form. 2)Chacin proves he’s not a complete flake. 3)The young pitchers are better than last year’s performances. 4)Tulo and Cargo come back with a little fire in their bellies. If those things happen, I think we may surprise, but if they don’t happen, then this team will and should be completely blown up and we’ll be the laughing stock of the league for… Read more »

I feel the same way. Unless the team surprises during the year, I probably will be able to enjoy ST at SRF@TS more so we can find a hidden gem that will bring us hope for the future. Like the recent draftees such as Tyler Anderson, Matzek, Dahl, Story, etc. I would be interested in seeing how Rob Schahill pitches since he has a ton of experience at high altitude but can he avoid batters adjusting to him? I hope… Read more »

In the category “the truth is stranger than fiction,” – Ken Rosenthal reported today that’s it not completely out of the realm of possibility that Rafael Soriano could end up in Denver.

Have any of Rosenthal’s “scoops”about the Rockies ever materialized?

The key word Rosenthal used was LONGSHOT (read he i just throwing *stuff* out there). I agree longshot. A huge longshot. Soriano walked away from $13.3 million he was scheduled to get this season. He wants to be THE guy. The closer. There are now some stories circulating that he would sign for $10 million a season or maybe even less. I doubt it but anything is possible. Are the Rockies really in the position to sign a closer for… Read more »
