FanPost

Approach has just been wrong at the top.....

That is all.

Think about what this team might look like had DOD kept Ianetta and made a deal with Rosario as the centerpiece? They'd certainly be a far superior defensive team, and I'd argue that Chris would have helped the pitching staff too. Rosario, combined with two additional prospects could have been used to land Cahill or Gonzales last offseason.

DOD and Rockies brass have been too tied to their prospects for ten years. Outside of using them to land relievers in the two years we were decent, this organization has been unwilling to part with their youngens to lamd Major League talent. As soon as that changes, we can have a Major League team again.

Guys like Arenado should not be off limits. It's a damn business and EVERYTHING and EVERYONE should have a price, including TULO and CARGO. The Rockies could become completely irrelevant if ownership is not very careful here. The Dodgers have upped the ante significantly in the NL West and the Giants took the bait. That leaves the Rockies and Padres in a sort of 'put up or shut up' situation.

If the Rockies are to contend over the next five seasons, it is going to take some bold moves that acquire a #1 and #2 starter because those guys are not in the organization as of 8/4/2012.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
