Word this morning is that the Rockies were trying to pick up Millwood last month, by offering him $1 million with another $1 million in incentives, but he wanted something closer to $3 million. Not sure if Millwood saw the Slowey contract before or after his price settled on $3 million, but with Slowey given $2.75 it seems like he would want more for his mound time. Troy Renck also tells us that the Rockies haven’t ruled out Millwood, but they might not be able to afford him. With the signing of Slowey and Cuddyer they are running low on cash, even though they still want a veteran in the rotation.
Two veterans they will not be pursuing, as of now, are Francis and Lidge. Neither are on the Rockies radar, even though both have been discussed this off-season. Dan O’ Dowd feels that the players he have so far are talented enough, if inexperienced, and is willing to take what comes with that decision.
Currently our rotation can be made up of: Chacin, Hammel, Pomeranz, Slowey, White, Chatwood or Rogers. What are your thoughts on this group? All of them are under 30.
