Talk about a change in philosophy. The Colorado Rockies seem to be immersed neck-deep in a pool of trade rumors and are primed to pull off some unprecedented moves this offseason.
While Dan O’Dowd and this front office are prepared to open up their checkbook, they remain animated about preserving their core. Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, who were subjects of unverified trade rumors regarding the Cardinals last week, are not going anywhere, according to Troy Renck of The Denver Post.
For a trade of that scale to ever happen, the Cardinals would likely have to give up Michael Wacha and Shelby Miller, something the team is reluctant to do.
The Rockies’ front office will be big players in the free-agent market this offseason, but who are they aiming for?
Here are a handful of moves the Rockies could actually pull off this winter.
