Monsoon Trade?

You ain't got no wins en mi casa...

The big news on the year's slowest sports day here in the 303 (or is it the 720 now? Hell, I remember when the whole damn state was the 303 and you didn't have to dial an area code. Bahhh, get off my lawn!) is the Rox entertaining trading Ubaldo to the Reds.

Initial reaction is generally "how could they!?" But after the seemingly distant 15-1first half of last year, a few Purp Fans might actually think this could be a move the Rox should at least listen to Cincy.

While the Rox aren't exactly know for schrewd manuevering and covert operations, this could be a classic internal smokescreen. Float the trade to the public so that the happy-go-lucky Ubaldo gets the word that he has the 2nd half to get his ish together or he's moving on out to southern Ohio or points beyond. Of course, that could backfire by pissing off your happy-go-lucky former ace who gets no run support, who has pitched well the last month or so, and who signed a sweetheart hometown deal just last year, just so you can fill the system with position players at power spots where you have substandardly drafted over the last half-decade.

Sounds like a great plan. But hey, the last Denver star who moved on to Ohio worked out to be a good deal, right?

Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb if the Rockies are even remotely entertaining this.

Renck says it's nothing. And I'd be inclined to believe him unless they just completely fall apart in the next 3 weeks.

DLR's return is still up in the air and Nicasio's really not ready to be a big leaguer.

So they better be trading us the next Joey Votto and three A+ young arms.

They have really blown the draft the last few. Although Im thinking Parker could be the real deal. But to NOT get a 1B power hitter that is ready to take over for TH?

Honestly Skyler it's not so much that they've blown the draft. They really haven't.

There just hasn't been a big time mashing 1st baseman in the draft where they've picked.

Parker could be good, and their pitching and infield prosepcts are very good. In fact with some other teams graduating a few prospects I expect the Rockies to be in the top 5 or even 3 as an organization for prospects in 2012.

"top 5 as an organization for prospects"? Great! Do they give World Series titles out for that? No? Too bad.
