With Major League Baseball’s General Manager meetings going virtual, what could be on the menu for Colorado Rockies GM Jeff Bridich?
As with everything else it seems in 2020, the first set of meetings for MLB’s general managers, set to begin yesterday, has gone virtual. Following that was the announcement that the annual Winter Meetings would be held virtually as well. That means any work done by Colorado Rockies GM Jeff Bridich and his staff won’t be done in a hotel suite or any other off-site location this year as opposed to years past. Like many of us, the world of baseball has suddenly become Zoom-centered.
And yes, Zoom or not, there is work for the Rockies to do this offseason. That not only includes upgrading a roster that was recently ranked dead last in MLB but also see what kind of discussions can be started and continued in terms of trades.
While there are plenty of questions about exactly how much the Rockies will invest this offseason after a recent letter to Rockies fans from owner Dick Monfort read in part that “there will be nothing normal about this offseason,” Colorado has to do something to contend for not only a postseason spot but their first-ever NL West title as well.
So what could happen at the virtual GM meetings? Here are some thoughts.
