    Colvin and LeMathieu for Ian Stew was a crazy deal

    How so? I thought it was fair, LeMathieu IMO won't ever turn out to be anything.

    Colvin I liked a lot but he really never got a shot. He has promise but has also struggled a lot at times. Stewart sounds to be the same way.

    I hope Colvin blows up for y'all though, I liked him a LOT.

    Ian Stewart hit sub .100 for the Rockies and Colvin has more potential in my opinion.

    That is your opinion, but look at Colvins stats last year. I watched him. He struggled, batted .150.

    As a fellow Rox fan, I gotta be optimistic and say the Lineup looks pretty good. It the pitching after DLR and Chacin I'm kinda worried about. Hopefully they overachieve again this year.

    I loved their pickup of Cuddyer. He is one of the leagues great under appreciated players.

    that is a sick rotation, Scherzer and Porcello are both underrated.


    I as a Cub fan is hoping the Garza for Turner trade is true, we need some young talent and Garza would put you guys in a dominant position.

    Its tough to predict Cuban players...

    The Rangers signed Martin last year and he made the big club by season's end, but I think they are getting him ready to be a real contributor this season.

    Huge mistake if we trade Turner + another top prospect for Garza.

    I agree but the last thing they needed was another outfielder.
