Colorado Rockies: 5 interesting quotes we heard from GM Jeff Bridich
By Kevin Henry
"“This roster, this team is probably not going to look the same in two or three months as it does right now.”"
This is no surprise, but it’s certainly worth thinking about because a lot of personnel decisions are going to be made between now and Spring Training.
As our own Jake Shapiro pointed out on this podcast, the Rockies have to think about 40-man roster moves, Rule 5 possibilities and which former Rockies could be brought back. Oh, and there’s also plenty of free agent possibilities out there for Colorado as well.

We saw at the end of last season (in very painful ways) that the Rockies were lacking in certain areas, particularly at the plate. Colorado’s futility against the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Division Series was disappointing … and not surprising considering the offense had struggled to piece together hits and runs for the majority of the season.
Bridich knows that Colorado can’t just roll the same lineup and roster out in 2019 as it did in 2018 and expect to top the Los Angeles Dodgers in the division. Upgrades must be made in order to give the Rockies the best chance to not only return to the playoffs for the third consecutive season, but also to go deeper in the postseason.
Baseball is a business and the Rockies have to get better this offseason by making smart but tough choices.
