Colorado Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich has a laundry list of things to tackle this offseason. From deciding next steps with All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado to whether to offer contracts to DJ LeMahieu and/or Adam Ottavino, there are plenty of decisions to be made this offseason that will have lasting impacts on the franchise.
Coming off back-to-back postseason berths for the first time in franchise history, there is plenty of momentum for the Colorado Rockies. With a group of talented young players also ready to show their skills (we’re looking at you Garrett Hampson, Ryan McMahon and David Dahl, among others), there will also have to be decisions made about whether to fully embrace the youth movement or bring in veterans in the offseason who can impact the club.
Yes, these are some of the decisions facing Bridich in the upcoming weeks. It will be anything but easy but this is part of the general manager’s job.
Now we ask you a question: If you were Bridich, what decisions would you make in the coming days to make the Rockies better?

In mid-November, we will take part in FanSided’s faux General Manager simulations. During this time, we will make trades, sign players and set the course for the future of the Rockies (in theory, of course). We did this last year and made some big decisions. You can check out what we did last year by clicking here. Then, you can think about how our deals last offseason might have impacted the Rockies in real life.
Some of you have already had ideas on what the Rockies can do to improve this offseason. And that is what we would like to hear from you. What moves would you make if you were the Colorado GM? What moves would you like to see us make in the upcoming Faux Winter Meetings with other FanSided site General Managers.
Let us know in the comments section below. We will do our best to make them happen. We will also report back on what trades we made … and which ones were rejected by other teams.
