The Colorado Rockies currently sit in fourth place in the National League West with an overall record of 23-30.  The team has been riding a mini-surge as of late, going 7-3 over their last 10 games, and climbing to within a reasonable seven games of the second National League Wild Card birth.

Given its past history of late-season surges, this team is by no means out of contention.  Their offense currently ranks third in MLB in runs scored and has the power to score with any team.  On the flip side, their top SP carries an ERA of 5.28, and their team ERA stands at a woeful 5.07—highlighting the glaring weaknesses in both their rotation and bullpen.

With the enormous amount of hitting potential already in their lineup, plus batting talent scattered among their minor league prospects on the farm, the Rockies have potential trading pieces that could allow them to shore up their pitching and make another patented playoff push in 2012.  Let's examine four chips that the Rockies should cash in this season.
