    I heard it was not so much Gonzalez but his agent. Scott Boras has a rep for being a huge pain in the rear for management in all sports. But what I have heard is that Boras fears that the Cargo "brand" can not be built here in Colorado.

      Peter Burns put it perfectly and it made me laugh:

      "The #Rockies are Initech from Office Space. Dan O'Dowd is Peter, so bad that management keeps promoting him."

        If CarGo gets so sick of the team, he demands a trade, I will follow him until changes are made. Meaning, cleaning house, and new ownership.

        However, we have stated we will not trade him or Tulo regardless. Even though I don't trust this organization at all to be truthful....

        Also, that's not the kind of player CarGo is. He's pissed to all hell....yes. He's stated we need to get some actual pitchers here. He's not afraid to speak his mind. HOWEVER, I don't believe he will request a trade. Can't see it happening. I believe we would see that from Tulo, before CarGo. :shrug:

            We'll have De La Rosa and Chacin back next season and with Francis I think that makes a decent top 3. One or two of Pomeranz, Friedrich and White should improve enough to be reliable. I think our pitching will be in decent shape unless we go trade everyone away again. Who did we get for Hammel? O right, he isn't on the team any more.

              We have a ton of young, promising pitchers. It depends if any of them will step up.

              JDLR deal is done and hinging on his player option. Will he take the player option? Will he be the same after his surgery? A lot of questions there...however....I do believe he will be a Rockie, and the same JDLR as before.

              Chacin should be back, and hopefully like the Chacin of pre-all star break of last year. But, once again, who knows?

              Francis was a fluke. I think his last outing is a sign of things to come. He's figured out again....and he's not gonna last. His ERA is 5.34 with a 3-3 record. He's been our best pitcher for a while, but that's just because of how badly we suck. He'd be most teams worst pitcher, easily. Hell, a year when Pomeranz has struggled mightily, Pomeranz still has a better ERA at 5.13. So, I don't think Francis will be part of our rotation next year.

              Nicasio...he'll be back...and he'll be a starter. He won't allow anything less of himself. Excited to see if he improved his breaking pitches.

              Pomeranz is supposed to be our future ace, after another summer of work, I believe he'll finally be in the bigs for good and have a pretty good season.


              So right now...next year...I have: JDLR, Chacin, Pomeranz and Nicasio.


              The pitchers I see battling (with a real chance) at the last spot in the rotation is....Alex White, Jonathan Sanchez and Friedrich. With Friedrich or White winning the spot.


              Just my thought on it. But still....still way to many question marks around the entire rotation...they all have a lot of talent and upside....but will they actually put it to use? Who knows...

                The only upside to this whole situation is the only thing the Rockies can do in the future is get better. At least I think that's the only thing they can do.

                Although with the current FO I suppose it could be stationary for awhile as mediocre. Hopefully not 20 seasons like the Pirates.

                  Friedrich is out for the rest of the year with a stress fracture in his back, so White will stick with the club the rest of the year.

                  We also might see someone else pitch too if Sanchez keeps sucking.

                    Went to the game last night, perked up when theey scored 4 runs to get close. Then left when Reynolds played like a little leaguer and gave up 6 before getting an out. Then woke up to an email from the owner saying he wants to keep us up to date with the goings on in the organization. Still says pitching is the priority, yet Tracy leaves Reynolds out there to get absolutely bum rushed after they rally to get close. They are just clowns.
