    At $35M per year, the #Rockies 7 year, $245M offer to 3B Nolan Arenado would make him the highest average paid player in #MLB history. The 27-year-old carried a $29.9M valuation into 2019, his final year of team control.

    Excellent move by the Rockies. This gives them their cornerstone for years.

    Thought I read in here Cargo was already given another year?



    Welp I scrolled back up and read it was rumors.

    I don’t care about sunken salary on Desmond. It’s sunk period. That doesn’t mean don’t pay Cargo who is clearly superior to Desmond at both the plate and center field.

    And Adam Jones is still unsigned. He would be a much better option than Desmond. That albatross of a contact will kill them this year and next.

    Either Dahl is your starter or he needs to be traded. Cargo is not someone you bring in to sit 100 games. He will take at bats and experience from a young guy who is supposed to be your future. I don't hate Cargo, I just can't stand when Bridich literally says after the Brewers series "We need to get better on offense", then brings back the same offense. You can't honestly think the Rockies were a Daniel Murphy away from being in the World Series.
    But getting rid of one of the better bats on the team doesn’t get us better on offense either. There are far worse bats in the lineup you should be concerned with.

    As for Dahl can he even make it through a season healthy?

    Cargo isn’t going to sit 100 games.

    I agree they should’ve done more to boost the offense but your frustration is misplaced if it’s with bringing Cargo back.

    Cargo had a pretty solid year last year. Sure it’s not what his earlier years were but he adds value to this team and is still a strong outfielder. I still don’t understand the hate he gets on these boards.

    I also don’t see how anyone thinks we messed up the Tulo thing. Sure Reyes wasn’t worth a damn but Tulo is absolute garbage now anyway since going to the AL. Sure he is still a phenomenal shortstop but be he is an absolutely atrocious hitter in the AL. I say good riddance to him. We are better off with Story.

    Strong rumors they're bringing back Cargo....(ugh). Might as well trade for Tulo too.
    What did the Rockies get for Tulo? Wasn't that Jose Reyes, who played in a handful of games, batting around .250, and then we suspended him for his Domestic Violence situation? And then, didn't we have to pay Reyes something like $40 million dollars upon his release? So, in essence, the Rockies ultimately got nothing for Tulo, and actually had to pay $40 million dollars for Toronto to take the most sought after SS in the Major Leagues off the Rockies hands, right?

    So, what would Toronto give to the Rockies to take Tulo off their hands? Oh wait, Tulo just signed with the Yankees.

    We got some real sharp people in the Rockies FO. Let's see how well they can screw up the Arenado deal.
