I was left with no option but to try and use my backup desktop computer. It’s damn near as old as my daughter Mylee, and she’ll be eight soon..
I got that thing up and crawling, but it’s just to old.
So after some tweaking, fixing, and replacing, I’m up online again using my old broken laptop.
I’m trying to look at this with the glass being half full, so on a positive note let me say at least my piece of schit computer lasted until the end of the regular season.
Speaking of broke and finished, who do you think the Rockies are going to get rid of before next season?
Do you like the way I just slid that in there? I got skills.
He has another year still in Colorado but you know he’s got to be wondering what his market value is? I’m curious.
As a Rockies ticket purchaser, I only help pay the Rockies salaries, I don’t sign their paychecks, but I think they should find a way to keep Holliday here. I’d pay a buck more for a Rockpile ticket.
He likes it here, keep the man happy, and pay him what he’s worth. Even that might not be enough.
Next seasons pitching should be interesting. Brian Fuentes (super southpaw) is coming off his best season and is now a free agent.
Brian Fuentes = reliable closer
Yep, he is going to cost some the Rockies some green, but pitching has ALWAYS haunted this team and this guy does what you pay him to do, win games.
In my opinion he is only expendable if it involves some kind of deal that keeps Matt Holliday in Colorado.
Jeff Francis never found his groove, and then he went on the DL for his shoulder. He struggled when he came off the DL, but was seemingly back in stride toward the end of the season.
If we could guarantee a solid pitching season (we all wish), there is no telling what the Rockies could do in this Division.
Now let me take this full circle. In my opinion, Matt Holliday is only expendable if we bring in a BIG name pitcher. See,…it works both ways.
Yorvit vs Chris. Hurdle will probably split their action 50/50 until an injury or performance dictates which one will assume the position. Both these guys are excellent catchers and the Rockies are lucky they have them both to choose from.
Where will Garrett Atkins wind up next season? This one is a pickle.
Garrett starts the season on third base. Todd Helton gets hurt midway through the year, Garrett takes over first base and does a great job.
Ian Stewart takes over third and does a better job than Garrett did.
Ian is younger, more athletic and gets paid less than Garrett.
On Garrett’s side, one thing he has that Ian doesn’t is a proven track record. Only time will tell for Ian.
I have more plenty more questions as do you I’m sure. I also have five months to kill.
Tell me what you think the Rockies should do for next season.
