I know you are all saying “won’t happen.” I’m just putting the topic on the table for discussion among RWOers for our fantasy Rockies team. 🙂
There is a great article written by Ken Rosenthal about trading Tulo. I believe that will ease the pressure building inside the Rockies’ organization. We can eventually thank Tulo for helping restore our minor league system and pitchers. In this article, he threw out some names and trading partners. sdcarp also brought up the Profar idea. Moving Tulo will erase Dick Montfort’s comments that we will “win once every five years.” Now he can’t say that without superstar Tulo on the team. Ease the expectations for the good of the team.
Baby Bull absolutely has to be moved to the AL where he can be a DH full time and be a back up catcher. In the same article by Rosenthal, he says that Rosario is a very poor game caller. One tweeter says that’s very true and he’s definitely hurt the pitching staff. Trade him for an AL second baseman with above average bat.
Back to the Tulo trade topic: Cubs have a surplus of shortstops; Ian Desmond doesn’t appear that he will be back with Washington next year; might Trevor Story break through in a couple of years? Another benefit of the Tulo trade – let somebody else suffer the consequences of his horrible late-and-close stats.
Matt Belisle – he won’t be back next year so give him away for something like a Chad Bettis type.
Give away DLR for something in return and then bring him back as a free agent for next year!
CarGo – that’s easy and just take the best offer.
