Just finished working for a year in Peru, and now returning to work in Northwestern Alaska. Spent 4.5 years at school in Cardinals Country (aka Rolla, MO). I get to spend a couple weeks in Denver a few times a year. Been a fan since the start, season ticket holder for the first 8 years, still try to see at least 10 games a year. Been to at least one game a year since the beginning, and October 2007 was the best month of my life for more than one reason.

Rockies Go for Broke with Tulo,CarGo Deals - Yahoo

+

This article does a pretty good job of summing up the offseason moves of the Rockies. Some interesting quotes: -"Colorado doesn’t have an abundance of top prospects, at least not many close to big league ready." -"The Rockies aren’t significantly better than last season." The article goes on to insinuate that the Rockies will never be able to attract and pay for or develop and keep star players due to the heavy back-loaded contracts given to Tulo and CarGo. Pretty critical of two of the best contract signings in the league this offseason.

Doubts Have Started for CarGo in 2011

Interesting article outlining some players to keep your eye on next year, plus players to stay away from. CarGo is one that has been put the latter category, with the likes of Pablo Sandoval and Josh Hamilton, that have had break out years then grossly dissappointed the next year.
