So, the point is that Boston didn’t solely spend for all their players. Most every big contributor excluding J.D. Martinez and David Price were acquired in some other form or fashion, and when that’s the case all you need is a smart front office and prospects and the Rockies have both of those things. The Red Sox had 21/25 players on their World Series roster acquired outside of free agency, and the Rockies NLDS roster had 19/25, and if you want to count Holliday and Iannetta as drafted players, then that number goes also to 21.
Here is the NLDS Roster:
International: Antonio Senzatela
No this is not as good of a roster as Boston. No the Rockies don’t have three top end starting pitchers as of right now, but if it shakes out the way we think it could with Freeland and Marquez, you have two, and Jon Gray is destined for a comeback season.
