We got 2B Charlie Culberson for him. Culberson has hit .236 with 10 homers and 53 RBI's for the Giants AAA team, and when he got called up, has hit .136.

Another bad trade by bad GM.

This trade was about $$$. Saved the Rockies 2 million bucks.

The scoop on Culberson:

1st round supplemental pick in 07 by the Giants.

Positives:
-Great defense, especially at 2B. Turns a double-play easily and has good range to both sides.
-Decent speed. Not a base stealer, but can get a few here and there (similar to Scutaro or Herrera speed).
-Hits the breaking ball well. Isn't simply a dead red hitter.
-Great hustle. Plays the game the right way.
-Good gap hitter. Racks up doubles and hits to all areas of the field.
-Age. He is 23 and still has time to develop before his prime.

Negatives:
-Chases too many pitches. His offensive woes are from him expanding the strike zone and can rack up Ks.
-Not elite power. Not bad power, but projects to hit about 10-15 at most a year.
-Even with more dedicated strike zone, he doesn't project to hit more than .280. His offensive ceiling seems to be about the league average.

Overall: Rutledge is probably the better prospect, but he is possibly better than Lemahieu. Should get a chance to stick with the team this year and Coors can help him get some offensive confidence.

I like the value we got, I don't like the position we got. 2B is a weak spot, but with Lemahieu, Rutledge, and possibly Nelson all pushing for playing time I can't see how this was needed. I would grade the trade a C.

Scutaro also said he wouldn't mind rejoining the Rockies after this year. He said he liked the talent and thinks they are close from making a splash.

I think you guys are overvaluing a 36 year old SS/2B that was about to hit FA. I really don't think O'Dowd could have gotten much more.

Yea I'm not unhappy with the value, I just don't like the position. Then again, I really don't know what players were offered for Scut, so I can't fairly judge what else was offered.

He already stated he wanted to stay here. So more than likely we re-sign him. He's been very solid for us.

Plus we don't have a better option at 2B and he provides some veteran presence to a very young club.

Terrible trade. Period. We didnt gain anything. But we lost a presence that a young team needs.

Not to mention we helped a NL West rival.

Regardless if we are in the hunt or not...that's just dumb.

Keep on, keepin' on, O'dowd.

Money talked in this deal nothing more. The Rockies were reluctant to take on his contract before we first acquired him. Nothing else mattered. Scutaro did fine here but this trade doesn't really bother me. We have enough veterans on this team. And Mark Ellis said he wanted to stay here too after last season. But money talked, so, it wouldn't be a forgone conclusion Scutaro would have stayed. He did say he would consider coming back in the winter.

And yes trading him to what O'Dowd said was our rival was weird.

Nice to see Scu-scu-scutaro with 2 RBI's tonight.

We put up a solid effort though tonight. Maybe next time.

Listening to some of the Nats/Giants game today and Jon Miller says, that is two outs where Scutaro has hit the ball hard. Get use to it Jon.:) Guy can't find no green.

I hope Scutaro makes it a point to thank that knucklehead for trading him and feeling he had no value to a crummy team like the Rockies. I hope O'Dowd feels stupid. Not good enough to stay here, but good enough to win LCS MVP somewhere else.

I'm happy for Scutaro, he's a good guy and player. Not happy for The Gnats or the Rockies. Colorado is the premier stop for transitional players who have something to prove and then get traded to a World Series contender. That must be O'Dumb's strategy, get players like that nad hope the team is good enough that they will want to stay. :laugh:

Care to change what you are saying about Marco now?

NLCS MVP speaks volumes to his value. (and the Rockies are still paying part of his contract)

No I do not. Scutaro wasn't playing that way in CO. He was good for the Giants, but his situation and play here dictated what we got.

I recall him swinging for the fences on SEVERAL occasions at home and showing off that warning track power. He puts the ball in play in SF.

Fundamental issue with team coaching? Absolutely.

Scutaro is on a 32 game hit streak too.

and he was doing just fine here...he kept hitting the ball hard, and just kept finding glove rather than grass, it was just a matter of time...
