The Colorado Rockies are entering an important two-week stretch where they need (ought?) to make a few moves. Where do they begin?

The next two weeks are going to go a long way in determining what the future looks like for the Colorado Rockies.
Do they sell everybody?
Do they hold everybody thinking they will contend next year, if only they can acquire some free agent pitchers better than, say, Kyle Kendrick?
Do they promote every young guy in the farm system — especially Jon Gray — and go for broke on hitting 100 losses, and do their best to get young and experienced(ish) for the next few years?
Whatever they do, the next two weeks before the trade deadline are going to tell you a lot about what Jeff Bridich is thinking, and who the Rox are going to be as a team in 2016 and beyond. No moves? Pitiful. Tons of moves? Interesting… but not necessarily good (see: Preller, A.J.)
So, we want to know — especially in light of the fact that staff writers Jeramiah Penaflor and Greg Moore will be putting up a series on Monday covering some trade options that Rockies might find themselves pursuing in the next two weeks.
As always, tweet us @RoxPileFS, or me @BobbyDeMuro with your thoughts. I’d also love to hear your thoughts on specific trades — who could the Rockies get back to Troy Tulowitzki? Where could they ship Carlos Gonzalez? Let’s have some fun predicting some rumors that will probably never come true.
