Rockies Reportedly Out on Michael Young.

February 9, 2011

Troy E Renck of the Denver Post is reporting the Rockies are likely out of the Michael Young trade market.

This is interesting as the Rockies had been thought to be the front runner for Young the past few days.

The Rangers are said to want a proven player or top prospect in any deal for Young. It seems unlikely many teams would be willing to part with top talent for the right to pay the $48 million owed to the 34 year-old Young over the next 3 years.

The Young story has quickly risen to the #2 story behind the Albert Pujols contract negotiations.

This story will continue to grow as spring training approaches.

Rockies and Carlos Gonzalez Discussing Extension

December 23, 2010

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports the Rockies are discussing a contract extension with Carlos Gonzalez. But talks of a 7 year 80 million deal are premature.

The Rockies are probably making a wise business decision by trying to lock up the budding superstar to a long-term deal now.
