Colorado Rockies GM Bill Schmidt’s pockets dry up

The plan reportedly going into the offseason was that the Colorado Rockies now permanent GM Bill Schmidt was going to make some moves happen.

No fan was under the illusion that the front office was going to resemble the Dodgers or Yankees but Schmidt said that the club needed more pieces. Adding two former Cubs Kris Bryant and/or Kyle Schwarber have been swirling around what was once a hot stove.

If they were able to join the team, it wouldn’t solve everything but there would be some genuine and much-needed optimism that Rockies fans haven’t had since that hot start in 2020 that fizzled very quickly.

Now the prospect of this club spending in what is likely to be another shortened season seems more and more doubtful. This is, in fact, the club that had members of their front office pull double duty doing working in the locker room.

After McGregor Square opened during a pandemic and less money to be made in this shortened season, Dick Monfort and, subsequently, Bill Schmidt may be far less inclined to spend the money for the help that this team undeniably needs to contend in the stacked NL West.
