Renck: Baseball in November is ridiculous - The Denver Post
In Troy E. Renck's piece about the hilarity of baseball being played in November, he has the following quote from Dodgers' coach Larry Bowa regarding our very own Rox: "Well, the mauling occurred early in the season. The last (three series) we played against them, they were great games," Dodgers third-base coach Larry Bowa said. "They are young. And they have a lot of talent." Bowa apparently went on to gush about budding star Carlos Gonzalez. Also, buried in the article is an update on Yorvit Torrealba, whom the Rockies would like to bring back but at less than half of his $4MM club option. As Renck says, Torrealba will likely bolt if a starting job is offered for similar (or more) money.
