Speaking of third base, there’s no way that Rockies fans want Justin Turner ever manning that position at Coors Field except from the visiting dugout.

Turner has done considerably better against the Rockies than Machado, slashing .344/.423/.517 (.940 OPS) with nine home runs and 52 RBI  in 411 plate appearances, and that certainly hasn’t endeared him to the Rockies fans any more than Machado’s swagger.

Yes, Turner is a free agent heading into the 2021 season so Rockies fans may not see him as often next year as they have since he came to the Dodgers in 2014. However, there’s no way that Rockies fans (even with the scenario that Arenado could potentially be traded this offseason) would want Turner at 20th and Blake.

And, of course, Turner didn’t endear himself to too many fans outside of Los Angeles with his controversial World Series celebration.

Turner’s teammate, Max Muncy, has been a Rockies killer for years so there is plenty for Colorado fans not to love about him. Could the Rockies use someone like him at first base? Absolutely. Would Rockies fans rejoice at the signing of Muncy? Let’s just say reaction would likely be mixed at best. After all, there have been plenty of debates about Muncy among Rockies fans online in recent years. Spoiler alert, they’re not good.
