Examining The Colorado Rockies At The Trade Deadline
The trade deadline is near, and the Colorado Rockies need to figure out how the next ten days will impact their future in the NL West.
With the trade deadline looming and the Rockies future in flux, this marks the first real opportunity GM Jeff Bridich has to make has mark on the team. You can almost hear opposing GM’s crying “the Bridich is coming! The Bridich is coming!” Seriously though besides the obvious trade targets (Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez) the Rockies have a chance to cash in on some “sell high” players while their value is at an all-time high, unlike they did with Justin Morneau.
“For the first time in a while the Rockies have a chance to define who they are.”
Staff writer Greg Moore and myself will be arguing pro and con with the other Rockies that could be moved. Whether its DJ LeMahieu, Nick Hundley, Jorge De La Rosa, John Axford or Charlie Blackmon, the Rockies have a few pieces that contending teams may be interested in. For the first time in a while the Rockies have a chance to define who they are and who they’ll be going forward. If the team stands pat or has a complete overhaul, it should be a hot topic for Rockies fans. So let the debate begin!
