Saturday Rockpile: Rockies looking at Turnbow, top 20 prospects list, more

Rockies attend Turnbow’s workout today | All Things Rockies
I don't really have much of a problem with this. Dan O'Dowd has shown that he has good judgment with bullpen arms, and a possible deal with Derrick Turnbow would probably be no different. It looks like the club has learned a lot about needing bullpen depth over the past couple of years, as opposed to the old strategy of forcing 3 or 4 guys to throw their arms off.

That was quick. After looking for help in narrowing it down a couple of nights ago, John Sickels has now posted his Rockies organizational top 20. Nobody rates higher than a B+, but in typical Rockies fashion, they have a whole bunch of guys in the B-range. I get the feeling that Sickels really likes a lot of the guys in the system, but feels most of them are too raw to really grade out. I would agree - a local scout (and all-around well-respected baseball guy) that I know sincerely thinks the Rockies have more good, raw talent than any other organization in baseball. And, that was before the club signed Tyler Matzek.

Patrick Saunders will no longer be covering the Rockies, apparently as of yesterday. Check out his blog post...the dude sure can wax nostalgic.

Wow, check out all these quotes regarding McGwire (and the rest of the known steroid users) by the apparently angry Jack Clark. Man, somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
