As the Colorado Rockies’ offseason begins in earnest, host Shawn Drotar and guest Casey Light discuss the addition of Bryan Shaw to the bullpen and the return of reliever Jake McGee. While rumors still swirl around the Rockies and their pursuit of closers Wade Davis, Brandon Kintzler, Alex Colome and even the potential return of Greg Holland, the pair dig deep into the Rockies’ staff and find a number of intriguing possibilities for a young rotation and a veteran bullpen.
Though the Rockies signed old friend Chris Iannetta to a free-agent deal, the Rockies still have question marks at catcher, first base and right field. Can Ian Desmond truly take over at first — the role he was signed to play — or will the Rockies need to mix and match with Gerardo Parra?
Lastly, Shawn and Casey take a look at the Rockies’ financial situation; with arbitration due to Charlie Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu, the possibility of signing superstar Nolan Arenado to a long-term contract get more complicated — could the Rockies entertain moving one the three?
