According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the Colorado Rockies are out there actively trying to improve their team (as they should be for god’s sake). He says that while they did make an offer to Michael Cuddyer, they are also going pretty hard after Carlos Beltran.
“#rockies are making a push for carlos beltran. they also made an offer to cuddyer. want 1 or the other,” Heyman tweets.
Every time I watch Beltran, I see someone who is ailing, old, slow and broken down. But, you look at his numbers and you see that he can still do it. In 44 games last year with the San Francisco Giants, he hit .323 with seven bombs. That’s not bad at all.
And then, throw in the thin air and Beltran could have a huge year with the Rockies. That is, if they get him.
