    Well, i was hoping the rockies would at least make one or two moves to improve the ballclub but it looks like resigning Francis is going to be the biggest move of the offseason

    still no pitching, bullpen is much weaker than last season, dont have too high of hopes for de la rosa to make a significant impact, looks like another season of subpar play, i would be impressed if we get close to .500

    at least there'll be some interesting young guys to watch develop

    It be badass if Rockies were focused on winning, with Cargo and Tulo, they need a Felix Hernandez to win a championship.

    shoot send rasario, Colvin, Fowler, and 3rd overall pick for Felix and robinson. that be awesome for us and felix.

    I guess DP is reporting the team is looking at Jair Jurrjens, Derek Lowe, and will watch Brandon Webb's workout when it happens. All of those guys would make the rotation, for what it's worth, but it pisses me off to think that management is fine putting the fans through another nightmarish season. And I don't think that'll change without a different ownership/management.

    Couldn't agree more. This is awful. Colvin just got a new contract.

    its gonna be tough watching them this season, dont see how theyve done anything but get worse this offseason

    ray: just send Cuddyer or Fowler or both and prospects for ONE decent proven, pitching cornerstone, deosnt even have to be a total ace guy just a guy that is worthy of being a #2 on most teams

    We just signed Torrealba. Happy to have him again but this isn't what we should spending our money on.

    Chacin 2 yr deal for $6.5 million is pending a physical. Likely will be around $2.1 M this year and $4.4 next.But that's just educated guess

    I agree with Iggles. At some point the Rocks have to trade away some of their current talent or depth for some pitching. I see some potential in the Rockies lineup, although I dread another season of watching Rosario catch. The Monforts need to be realistic (and reasonable in their expectation on a return) and move Fowler or Rosario for some much needed rotational help. Depending on Chacin as a #1 isn't going to cut it. De La Rosa at #2 makes me laugh even harder. We all know the Rockies don't have what it takes in their system to land a Felix Hernandez, but I'd settle for a Matt Garza type pitcher.

    I'm ready for baseball but I think this season is going to be awful. Without adding pitching we don't stand a chance.

    Looks like we're interested in Niemann (Rays) and Capuano (Dodgers). Both of them are decent. They have an ERA under 4 so I'll take it.

    Niemann I was reading might be Friedrich straight up. I think we need to trade position players considering we are so deep in position players.

    Maybe if the pig farm burns down, those ***holes have to go bankrupt and sell the team.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Rockies expanded their big league Spring Training roster to 66 Saturday when they signed right-handed reliever Bobby Cassevah to a Minor League contract and invited him to camp.

    Cassevah had been outrighted by the Angels on Friday, but he declined a Triple-A assignment and elected free agency instead. The Rockies scooped him up a day later to contend for their 'pen.

    Though he pitched in only four games for the Angels in 2012, Cassevah made 50 appearances for the club since his big league debut in April of 2010. He owns a 3.20 ERA in 64 2/3 innings pitched, with 34 strikeouts against 33 walks. Perhaps most appealing to the Rockies, he has a 65.9 percent groundball ratio.

    Pitchers and catchers reported to the Rockies Minor League camp Saturday, with position players reporting Friday. Cassevah can expect at least an appearance or two in Cactus League play as his new club gets a close look at him. He made one spring appearance with the Angels on Feb. 24, throwing one scoreless inning while allowing a hit and two walks.

    Aaron Cook has been signed to a minor league deal and Ramon Hernandez has been designated for assignment.
