Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post sat down with Rockies infielder Garrett Atkins, who may be traded this winter.  Atkins is comfortable going year to year, even if it increases the chances of a trade.  He's under team control through 2010.

Renck mentions the Indians and Twins as suitors for Atkins.  Tracy Ringolsby believes Michael Cuddyer is on the Rockies' radar (Cuddyer is signed through '10 with an option for '11).

Fellow trade target Matt Holliday says Atkins can hit anywhere, though Atkins hit just .244/.303/.415 on the road over the last two seasons.

Will Rockies Trade Atkins?

Who would ever want to acquire Holliday or Atkins (opps...sorry A's).  Have any of these GM's looked at both of these guys avg., hr, rbi, obp, and slg % away from coors park.  It is bad.  Holliday .308 with 10hr and 29rbi's (remember that is for 81 games).  Atkins .233, 7hr and 44rbi.  I might, and i mean might, consider a player that bats .233, but his name is spelled, D-U-N-N.  Other than that, no way.  God, I wish I could be a GM.
