OK I will admit that I have been MIA as of late, but I gotta tell ya that this off season has really been completely dreadful. I even found some solice in watching the Donkeys for awhile, but now regretably that’s gone too.
There was a time in years past that I used to anticipate DanO’s every off season move with the glee of an eight year old on Christmas morning. Sure I knew full well that there would be no Sabathia or Pujols in my Rockies Christmas stocking, but there was always the Cuddyer or Guthrie types in there to simulate my baseball mind games even if it was only temporary.
Now since I have been in total down mode while waiting for DanO’s next move that seemingly will never come, I took a quick look at the completely full 40 man roster that includes some pitchers (I swear that this is the group that they are listed under) and I have no clue as to why they belong on a MLB roster let alone our much beloved Colodado Rockies.
The pitchers on the roster that I refer to are Gardner, Harris, Scahill and Sullivan. All are right handers and all seem to be headed to the bullpen if they make the MLB at all. Now I have just one last question for you – would you rather have any of these guys (I won’t bore you with the MiLB stats) or one Roenicke guy in your bull pen with decent MLB stats in 2012 that the Rockies let walk away for absolutely nothing?
Oh yah I keep forgetting that DanO is one of the smartest GMs in all of MLB baseball! Wake me up when the pitchers and catchers report!
