Interesting article but I’m not a fan of this route at all. Plus this person loses any credibility with me when he makes the comment that the team needs to finally open up the wallet. We’re continually a top of the league payroll and this mentality that we don’t spend money is idiotic.


I think that the trade for Lindor is an overpay and weakens our OF a lot. Taylor and Kike’ are nice but them and or Pollock starting is terrible. We need to add a bullpen arm or two and I’d love to sign Rendon and retain Ryu. They want to move Turner to first which opens up 3b, though they could move Seager there. Lux can play 2b or SS but if Turner is moving to first that means Muncy is at 2b.

Its going to be an interesting offseason.

Come to the Dodgers baby we won't disrespect you! Opt out after 2021 season looking more and more like it's going to be used. Add his reported attitude to the GM and his no trade clause and we're looking at the final days of him being a Rockie IMO.

Unless the Cardinals trade for him. :p

Truth be told, I don't want to deal for Arenado when it'll likely cost us Gorman, Liberatore, and another top prospect, as well as a Major League starter. That's what I'm hearing what the cost is.

Which we can and would pay. But they won’t trade him to us so we’ll just wait for him to opt out in 2021 and break the bank for him.

Well, I get why you would pay it; after losing out on Rendon, Turner's age at the time Arenado (likely) opts out, the unknown variable in Seager, and the fact that you have the deepest farm system in the league...well, yeah, of course you'd pay up, if the Rockies would trade in the division (which they obviously won't.)

The Cardinals aren't in the same position. The only positive in the Arenado trade would be dumping one of the worst contracts we have (i.e., Carpenter or Fowler) to make up the money. Problem with that is that we still have to give up too much assets to get Arenado, if not more because of the aforementioned contract dumping.

You can afford the luxury payroll that comes with Arenado's deal; we can't.
