What happens after the trade?
Well, Justin Bour would obviously play first. That leaves Desmond in the obvious position of either playing left or right field (most likely left), leaving him and Gerardo Parra to be interchangeable pieces in the outfield. If you’re not into that proposition, you still have David Dahl and Mike Tauchman. If this were to actually work out, the Rox would have answered all their questions for the 2018 season. All they’d have left to prove that they can contend in the Wild Card or even first in the NL West.
The Marlins are getting rid of guys left and right and I see no reason as to why the Rockies shouldn’t be getting in on this. Justin Bour would be the possibly the last piece of the puzzle to put together that perfect team.
Everyone knows Eric Hosmer is out of the question at the moment. As a result, the Rockies have to rely on trades or calling up some of these younger guys who might not be ready for the Show. There’s no harm in Colorado entertaining this idea at all and the benefits the Rox could reap are endless.
This trade could possibly be just want the Rockies need to get their championship winning team.
