Weekly Link Round-Up


An assortment of worthwhile reads from around the blogosphere.

  • Of the one-year deal pitching candidates outlined by MLB Trade Rumors, which one should the Rockies be gunning for? You know what I’m going to say. Kevin Millwood. GET IT DONE DOD.
  • MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes lists the Rockies’ trades of Huston Street and Chris Iannetta among the six most surprising of this offseason. Certainly Netta was a surprise, but Street has been on the block since July. The surprise, perhaps, is in which team took him.
  • Justin Hunter makes an excellent argument for how known users of performance-enhancing drugs should be dealt with when their names come up on the Hall of Fame ballot.
  • Yes, it’s uber depressing that we’ve lost three former first-round draft picks so far this offseason. But as Andrew Martin points out, everybody since 2006 is still with us. No pressure Christian Friedrich, but it could be on your shoulders to turn this thing around.
