What's the real reason the Broncos, Nuggets and Avalanche (probably) all failed to find glory this year? The Rockies drank their karma. Actually, I don't think getting to the second round of the playoffs wasn't too terrible a result for the Avs this year, but what I want to know is where we can get a refill on that shake. STAT.

Jason Grilli and Jorge de la Rosa -plus $200,000 cash- in, Zach Simons out . Jose Capellan's stay with the MLB squad was cut short quickly, before he actually made a pitch for us, in fact.

Grilli seems to be the Tigers scapegoat for their own poor start, and those numbers actually aren't as terrible as Tiger fans assure us that his performance has been. I mentioned in the fanpost below that it's important to keep in mind he's switching to an easier league, and NL hitters haven't had a good look at him since 2001. I can't see anything wrong with getting a guy like this on the cheap.

Tulo's headed for the DL, Morales to Arizona in attempts to fix our floundering young players. Rockies roving pitching instructor Jim Wright will attempt to fix Morales' mechanics. For an excellent write-up on those mechanics, and a photo analysis of what he's doing differently this season from his dominant performances of last season, read Alex Eisenberg's post at Baseball Intellect. It's definitely worth the time.
