We are in that part of the offseason where there seem to be rumors and potential trade ideas popping up daily. With the Colorado Rockies finishing 71-91, there are some writers out there who believe that the Rockies should follow the old “let’s trade off all of our good players for prospects” line of thinking.
Here’s the problem with that line of thinking, however. The Colorado Rockies aren’t going to be doing that heading into the 2020 season. Does the team need some help? Absolutely. Is the team going to be trading off some of its top players to make it happen? Not a chance.
After being tagged in a tweet on Monday afternoon, it was one of those “enough is enough” moments. And with that moment of frustration, this article was born.

Trust me, we at Rox Pile like to come up with trade ideas as well. We will be doing that plenty with the upcoming FanSided Faux Winter Meetings happening just before the Thanksgiving holiday. However, you can rest assured that we are not going to make trades that would shake the foundation of the team in the way that some of these recent articles have suggested the Rockies should do.
Yes, the Rockies need some help in the offseason. No, trading off these players wouldn’t provide that help.
Let’s dive in.
