The Colorado Rockies are probably going to be trading quite a few players over the winter — are they going to be selling high when they do?

This winter, the Colorado Rockies are going to have to do quite a bit of work to once again become relevant, and general manager Jeff Bridich has his work cut out for him. We’ve been discussing that since, well, since about 2011 so there’s nothing new here.

This year, the Rockies have quite a few players on the roster who they could/should/might trade over the winter in their quest to get younger, stock prospects, and rebuild for 2017 and beyond. Now that the season is (mercifully) ending, how are these potential trade pieces doing, anyways?

In other words, have these players done themselves — and the team — a favor with strong 2015 seasons upon which the Rockies can negotiate a trade, or is Colorado left with a burden they have to try to move over the winter? As you probably expect… it’s a little bit of both.

So, here are some of the Rockies’ most notable trade candidates for the winter, broken down by whether they’ve helped the Rockies trade negotiations or hurt the ball club when it’ll come down to bargaining during the Hot Stove.
