GM Jeff Bridich facing critical free-agent decisions as Rockies enter offseason | The Denver Post
Patrick Saunders identifies some of the major offseason questions the Rockies and Jeff Bridich will face. In particular, the team has to decide what to do with players like Greg Holland, Carlos González, Jonathan Lucroy, Mark Reynolds, Pat Neshek, and Jake McGee. They're all set to become free agents (pending Holland's decline of his player option). The decisions will have ripple effects, too. If the Rockies decide to bring Reynolds back again, for instance, it will make it harder for the young players to crack the roster. It will be an eventful offseason.
