Colorado interested in Britton

Recommended Posts

Probably just seeing whats out there but it makes some sense for both clubs.  The rockies have infield prospects which the Orioles are light on and they need some relief help.

Britton for Inf Ryan McMahon: The odd man out with Colorado having LeMahieu and Arenado at 2B and 3B.

Britton for RHP Ryan Castellini and LHP Sam Howard: Two prospects who project as mid to back end starters. Not sure the Rockies would do this since they always need pitching.

What do you guys think?

I'd love to see Antonio Senzatela coming back, maybe with a low minors upside guy along for the ride.

Britton makes a ton of sense for the Rockies. It's basically a similar move to Holland, a top tier closer that's coming off injury that they can gamble on for less than the big names on the market who will likely look to stay away from Coors anyway.

I think there are a number of deals to be made here. I'd prefer to have a major league ready starter coming back and Colorado has a few of those, but even dumping the salary for a prospect or two could help the 2018 club by allowing a bit more money to be distributed to the rotation.

I think McMahon would be a good guy to target. Whats the chances he sticks at 3B? He only played 3B his first few seasons but the last two has spent more time at 1B. If he can handle 3B he may be a possible replacement for Machado.

He's not very good at 3B from all reports I've read, like maybe you could stick him there and hold your nose.  I haven't seen him play there though.

Me too! Solid year in majors very young and a sparkling minor league resume. Doubt he is available

I’d bet he is, they also have Gray, Hoffman, Marquez, Freeland, and Anderson as well.  All of those guys have a better pedigree I believe.

I thought DD wanted to keep Britton.

DD does, but that doesn't mean others aren't kicking the tires and seeing the asking price is.

I doubt seriously that a Duquette would tip his hand in dealing Britton or Manny. I take him as he'd like them to be on as fact. But it would be foolish to let them play out their contracts and leave under the new rules.

DD usually good about not tipping his hand.

But, seriously, listening to him over the years when ask about trading a player before they walk, he doesn't seam to buy into that opinion too much.

Not saying he is right, or wrong, because I know this topic has been discussed a time or two here. :)
