I was just going through my daily routine and reading all of the MLB rumors. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I found information on mlbtraderumors.com stating 'According to Renck, the Rockies also have interest in Scott Kazmir '
No, I am not about to suggest a crazy trade where Kazmir and a couple of decent prospects lands us Cargo or Tulo. I am going to suggest the Rockies may be a viable trade partner and Kaz may have more success in the National League. I have read reports about Kazmir working hard in the offseason, but I am not confident he will regain his all-star form.
Here are a few possible players we could target from the Rockies:
Ian Stewart - He could be a nice left-handed bat with some pop and can help fill our gap at 3B (Note: I do not want us to pay big money for Beltre)
Matt Reynolds - a nice, young lefty out of the pen. Not much MLB experience to draw on, but has had success at all levels. Decent lines from last year.
Huston Street - depending on his health situation. Unload one big contract (Street $7.2M) for another? Hey it's better than what we paid Fuentes or Kazmir
Just a thought. I was happy to see there was some interest in Kazmir.
