      Money not bad but the player is. Hasn't been the same since his concussion.

          Did you guys support the Cuddyer signing?

            I wasn't sure at first but it's worked out wonderfully for us. Cuddy is awesome.

            Morneau should benefit a little from Coors. I like it.

              How's he a bad player? His hitting definitely isn't the same, but he can still hit okay and he's a heck of a fielder.

                  Shouldn't you guys give Morneau the same benefit that you give Cuddyer? Don't listen to me though, I'm not a Rockies fan, I just thought that I'd give you some food for thought

                    Cuddyer was still a consistent product who wasn't missing ample time due to injuries. The Rockies have offense, another bat wasn't a necessity. Who is gonna hit leadoff now? Our non existent 2nd basemen?

                      Obviously I'd rather see the team make a bigger splash, but I like the move. This would be a great move if they also added a big FA to go along with the signing.

                      The team still needs a 2B, more SP, and BP help.

                        DJ LeMahieu is the starting second baseman. He has a career .286 average with the Rockies, he's a very good fielder, he stole 18 bases last year, and he's only 25 years old.

                        They need another outfielder, at least one more starter, and at least one more arm in the pen.
                        Anyone seen Jake Plummer?

                          Meh, He's decent but we need better if we want to be a championship team. Agreed on an OF, Blackmon and Barnes ain't gonna cut it.

                            I think Blackmon deserves a shot to start. I like what I've seen out of him. Agree about Barnes though.

                              Is someone else running the team now? This is a halfway decent transaction. Will the real Dan O'Dowd please stand up??
