anyone want Fielder there instead now?
Here is a link to a newspaper that has the story and doesn't force people to pay for online news content.
I certainly was drawn to the statement, "There's no glory in 78 wins instead of 73. Who cares?
Sure does match what some of us have said on this board for some time now, that it makes more sense that if you aren't a contender for a playoff spot there is no reason to do your best to win 71 games. Especially if it is at the expense of attaining players that can help the future of the franchise.
It seems the Rockies stole that trade. I also believe that is why Stewart is on this team. To try and justify the trade a little more to Theo. All Gm's make mistakes but I think ego got in the way of a sound baseball decision with that trade.Nicely worded Silence.
and Stewart was coming off an injury after posting 25 and 18-HR seasonsActually he was coming off a season where he hit an impressive .156 with 0 HR's in 136 PA's.
And what does that say about Stewart's completely mediocre numbers than that got that same advantage??
Any decent breakdown of Colvin's numbers from last year are clearly a product of playing at Coors Field!
