    Somehow missed this post. This could make things real interesting if the Rockies decide to put Nolan on the Market. Would have to think LA would be one of the destinations he'd drop his no trade clause for.

    ROX have every excuse to tank for 4 or 5 years and see where they're at by the end of that stretch. They're the worst team in Denver, no contest. It's not even like they're competing for the heart of the city with another club. They may even be behind the Avalanche. It's a Broncos' town by default, and now the Nuggets have a strong team.

    As much as I would love to get Rendon or Arenado, I still think our main weakness is in pitching, especially another starter and a closer. I know the market might be a little thin there, but pitching is a problem.

    1000% I remember feeling like there was no way he'd stay..Dodgers are too far out front. And just the other day Arenado says, " Dodgers are better now than they were in the past. "

    Ehh, Rockies are easily the second most popular team here. Avs are third and the Nuggets are 4th. When the Avs and Nuggets are bad, Pepsi is empty. When the Rockies are bad, they’re still pulling like 25k a game in. With that said, they need to do a rebuild now. Take advantage of their crop of young stars, trade them and totally reload the farm to compete with the West at a time when the Padres and D’Backs start losing some of their better players to FA and at the same time the Giants are pulling out of all their shitacular contracts.

    It made absolutely no sense. Seemed like he was afraid after seeing what happened to Harper and bought in a little too much to the over performance of their young pitchers. Right after he signed there were multiple reports that the Dodgers were totally blindsided by that as he was priority #1 this winter.

    It's always been a Bronco town. Others aren't even close.

    There's nothing else going on when the ROX are bad, so it doesn't shock me that they get 25K in there. It's a cool, little hang out type of deal in the summer..fans don't go there expecting to win games. They're popular for the wrong reasons. Broncos' fans go to games believing that they can win..Nuggets, the same. They just so happen to not be playing in the summer, so they aren't the summer hang out.

    ROX can tank and still be the summer hang out.

    I'd do that for him, but definitely give someone else for Beaty and Taylor at least a try.
    But, yeah.

    Going into the final 2 weeks of the season. The Dodgers have two agains that in the hunt Rays and then over and out teams.
    The NL Central is where it is at. 7 between the Cards and Cubs and the Cards play just contenders the rest of the way. The Brewers sched is 4th place team, 5th place team, 4th place, 5th place. They have a real shot of snapping up the NL Central even without Yelich. Yanks play 2 at the Rays, then nothing while the Astros play straight garbage. Dodgers control their own destiny in the NL, but grabbing HFA throughout will be tough.

    A's have some scary bullpen arms who throw left handed so they would not be a cakewalk, but an A's - Twins ALCS would give me some false hope. Ray's - Twins ALCS would have me fully erect

    Turner deserves all the praise in the world for being our best, most consistent hitter for 6 years.

    But it is time for Rendon.

    Let JT log 130 games at 1B for the duration of his contract. Just keep him fresh for the post. Too injury prone to carry the load (no homo).

    I’m totally down for Rendon(or Arenado) just not sure what the plan going forward would be?

    2B Lux
    SS Seager
    3B Rendon
    CF Bellinger
    1B Turner
    LF Muncy ?
    RF Verdugo
    C Smith

    I think it was Nosler that speculated that they would move Seager, which would be something and would probably land them some serious specs. Just there would need to be a lot of moves in the Rendon scenario. Not saying I’m against it, just it would be one hell of story to watch unfold.

    As much as I hate the DH, it'd sure help haha.

    I really hope Seager can be a 6+ WAR SS again. He depresses me.

    I’d bet a lot of money that the Rockies would have a mandate that they don’t trade Arenado to the Dodgers. No matter what the Dodgers offer, I wouldnt be surprised if the owners or someone puts in an order to not have him to go LA. They’re wack like that
