O'Dowd Cheap Moron Again at Deadline; 10 Things Rockies do to Catch Up

Dan O'Dowd has been known as the "farm system GM", when it is clear now that he just goes the cheap route (i.e letting Holliday and Matsui walk) to avoid losing money for the organization. Being average at all spots except ace pitcher, left field, and shortstop, the Rockies remained quiet all day long and Tracy Ringolsby on MLB Network was just O'Dowd's minion in explaining depsite $75 million available in budget, the Rockies kept decent prospects and left Adam Dunn, Ty Wigginton, and Javier Lopez (Golden native) walk away from Denver. The Rockies now need to keep up with the San Diego Padres, who acquired a hopeful slumping bat in Ryan Ludwick, and the Dodgers. The Dodgers did what the Rockies needed to, by getting Ted Lilly, Ryan Theriot, and Octavio Dotel. The Giants also acquired Javy Lopez, which may be a good thing considering the Carlos Gonzalez 442 ft. homer off him. The Rockies need to make changes now to almost "act" as trades to keep up if they have a chance now against Dotel, Tejada, and others.
