JDLR = Oliver Perez??

+

Stark quotes an unnamed GM that anyone interested in signing JDLR this winter had better do their homework comparing him to Perez. Now the question is he serious or is he downplaying him in order to get a better shot at signing him?? I guess the positive of this is that even if he is the next Perez at least we would still get a pick or two.

Andy Seiler's Recap of Last 5 Draft

+

Nice recap of the top of each of the last 5 Rockies drafts. Great comments on Schmidt and the job he has done as the Scouting Director. About a month old - so the projections he makes towards the bottom may be a bit stale.

Non-Roster Invites v.2

Per RMN's suggestion I am reposting this discussion here from the FanShot I posted the other day.  Couple of good comments on Matzek being a NRI on the FS already.    Just thought I'd start a...

Non-Roster Invites

Just thought I'd start a Shot to discuss NRI. The only ones I'm aware of right now are Juan Rincon and Paul Phillips. I'm sure DOD will keep true to form and bring in a handful of pitchers to...

40-Man / DL Question

I've surfed around on the web and have not been able to find the answer to this question - When can we move Buchholz to the DL and open up another roster spot on the 40-man? Thanks - jl

New Year (Decade) Roster Thoughts

The other day I had a few minutes (actually was up to my a$$ in work, but this was more interesting than actually working) so I spent some time pondering the 2010 opening day roster and have...

Holliday's Offer Timeline

+

Courtesy of MLBTradeRumors.com Seems Matt's best offer in terms of both $$$ and years came from the Roxs. IMO - I'm glad he didn't accept our offer. I like our chances better with CarGo, Street and the payroll flexibility that we still have. Plus if Smith is healthy he could provide competition for the 5th starter.

SI - Farm System Ranking

I presume we fall at the top end of the Best of the Rest Category. Can't imagine that we don't have a top 10 rated farm system.

Interesting article from MLB.com on the economics of baseball. Don't believe any of it is shocking.

Any idea how many FA, if any, we will need at ColSprs to fill in the gaps?

According to this SI article - Heyman suggests DOD and Colletti will be coveted FA. Not sure how to feel about this.

Deadline Salary Analysis

According to this MLBTR note, the Rocks were one of 12 teams to take on salary at the deadline $1.9 mil. The winner - St. Louis with its acquisition of DeRosa and Holliday @ $6.6 mil.

The Rangers' Five-step (rebuilding) Plan

Outlines Rangers' rebuilding process - mentioning the Rocks' rebuilding a couple of times. Towards the end suggests interest in Street and Hawpe. Not a bad analysis of the rebuilding process and can see the Rocks somewhere between Steps 3 and 4.

CBS Sportsline Power Rankings

26th up from 29. Forgot to mention that this win streak (6 now) has been done on the road. ~~~~~~~~~ Is that a pulse? I think it is! ... Any mess of invalids can string together a five-game winning streak over the course of a 162-game season, but what's impressive about the Rockies' recent run is that they outscored the competition by 31 runs and that they needed a mere 8 2/3 innings from their relievers during it. ... Ubaldo Jimenez is looking quite acey nowadays, but that still doesn't excuse him from the short-short sleeves he donned on Sunday. You want to flash your guns, go to Bally's Total Fitness ... That Jason "Tasty Innings Muncher" Marquis leads the NL in wins tells you everything you need to know about the usefulness of that particular stat.

Rosenthal: Contenders looking to Rockies to plug holes

Unless we get a stud prospect back, I think trading Street would be a mistake. Hoffman had 10 saves by time he was Street's age. I'd be more for tying to move Corpas for a A-ball prospect.

Best I can tell McLouth is no Hawpe. So if the Pirates can get OF Gorkys Hernandez P Charlie Morton P Jeff Locke What should we expect??
