The trade that could be made?

Weiters and Matzus (Orioles) for Rosario, Matzek and Rutledge – why not – because it makes too much sense for both clubs.

Not sure why the O’s would go for that, Orange. On an unrelated note: Pirates DFA Garrett Jones. He’s now my leading candidate to be our first baseman next year. No, he’s not good. Yes, he is pretty cheap. Yes, he probably is no worse than Justin Morneau and he’s a lot cheaper. I’m so depressed by the lack of activity by the Rockies that I’d actually welcome this at this point. Garrett Jones and Michael Morse or something as… Read more »

Seems like a decent offer, but can the Rox afford/willing to sign Weiters to the long term contract that would be needed to make this worthwhile. I can see moving Rosario to an AL team makes sense.

A solid defensive first baseman is a must for the Rockies. It’s not the occasional error on a ground ball I’m worried about, it’s the decrease in the ability to handle all those crazy throws from Tulo and Arenado that matters. Nolan even mentioned it after winning the GG when he gave credit to Helton for handling all his wild throws. Never forget that many of those great grabs, turns, and throws from the left side of the infield included… Read more »

Like Agbayani, I’m getting depressed at the lack of off season activity. Hawkins being signed and anointed the closer doesn’t count; it actually makes the winter more depressing. I’m going to Las Vegas Saturday for four nights. Is there a betting window where they have the odds of Rockies making a deal before X-mas? I would put a lot of money on the no-deal bet. Dick is spending too much time watching over Charlie and not enough time opening up… Read more »

Rockies hire EY Sr. as first base and base running coach and Blake Doyle as their hitting coach.

They are pursuing Justin Morneau for first base.

I’m with Bob. Defensive 1b is a must. Pikin’ that throw is huge.

So what do we get when we trade Fowler? There are a lot of OFers in the Rox barn that could be utilized in LF or RF with CarGo moving permanently to CF.

I really hope the Rays suck it up and keep Price but if a Rays/Ranger deal is going to go down I wish it would happen sooner than later. Sorry but I would feel better with Loney than all the others mentioned, especially Trumbo or Morneau. With Moreland most likely going to the Rays then Loney is available.
