The bottom line, amid all this nice speculation about potential trade destinations for Reyes (especially/maybe including some along side CarGo) is that the Rockies likely won’t flip Reyes until the winter.
That’s probably the right move, too. They can get more for him — from more potential suitors — at the Hot Stove meetings than they can during a frenetic trade deadline. It’s in their best interest to wait.
Now, if they were blown away by an offer… hey, then we could talk. And maybe they will be! Maybe somebody will decide they need CarGo, Reyes, or whatever combination you can imagine over the next 36 hours. That’s unlikely, but then again nobody saw the Blue Jays picking up Tulo, so what the hell do we really know?
What do you think — will the Rockies flip Jose Reyes, or keep him through the end of the year?
