Colorado Rockies As A Trading Partner


Many Sox fans have voiced their desire for Boston to make a trade of some sort with Miami for Giancarlo Stanton and some are willing to part with Xander Bogaerts or super prospect Mookie Betts to make it happen. I am not so sure that Miami will be dealing Stanton this season since the Marlins are in post season hunt and I also think it will be a mistake to deal either Bogaerts or Betts at this time. I feel that Boston should be making a run at Troy Tulowitzki as he is under contract through the year 2000 at about $15M per. What can we give Colorado in return ... a lot. They need help at 3rd, CF, Catching and they are last in all of MLB in pitching. With Tulo at SS and Xander at 3B the Sox can offer Cecchini / Middlebrooks. At catcher we have Vasquez & Swihart, JBJ can be replaced by Mookie Betts in CF next year and JBJ would be a very real asset to patrol CF in Colorado. Now onto pitching .... Colorado has one SP prospect in Baseball America's top 100 prospects list and he has already joined the team in Denver. Should Boston extend Lester and Lackey (which I am in favor of) and we sign Shields as a FA (why - because we can and because Shields has proven that he can pitch in the AL). Now add Workman and Rubby to round out the rotation and Boston will have one of the best 1-5 in the game. This will leave Webster, Ranaudo, Barnes, Doubront, Wright, Buchholz, Johnson and Owens as trading chips. Sure Giancarlo is younger than Tulo but he is also going to cost any club that signs him long term a ton.
