Colorado Rockies field calls for Nolan Arenado, Corey Dickerson, and Charlie Blackmon: Winter Meetings Day 1


Day one of the Winter Meetings was a quiet one for the Colorado Rockies. However, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reported that the Rockies fielded calls for Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, and Corey Dickerson. I could see teams interested in Blackmon and Dickerson because of their outbursts last season, but Colorado shouldn’t even entertain offers for their budding superstar in Arenado.

A trade of Blackmon would make the most sense out of the three strictly because of Blackmon’s value at the time. Who knows if Blackmon will be able to reproduce the statistics he provided last season but it’s an intriguing topic nonetheless.

More from Colorado Rockies

  • Some more news and notes from the Winter Meetings is that new Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich confirmed that the team has cut ties with strength and conditioning coach Brian Jordan. Jordan was with the team for 14-years and people close to Jordan and the situation were shocked by the decision. Yet, no one seems to question head trainer Keith Dugger.
  • Baltimore has drawn interest in Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs. Stubbs put up career-highs last season in the thin-air at 20th and Blake. Stubbs hit .289/.339/.482 with 22 doubles, 4 triples, 15 home runs, and 43 RBI’s. Personally, I thought Colorado should have made a trade involving Stubbs at the deadline last season while his averages were still relatively high.
  • Colorado has expressed that they’d like to part ways with catcher Wilin Rosario. I mentioned earlier in the season that trading Rosario to an American League team would make most sense, strictly because of the designated hitter. Rosario’s catching ability has not improved and his numbers offensively dipped last season.
  • Patrick Saunders cleared the air today about the Rockies potentially confronting the Mets about a deal containing Troy Tulowitzki. Saunders asked Bridich who refuted the report.
  • To top it all off, the Miami Marlins have expressed interest in first baseman Justin Morneau.

Hopefully day two of the Winter Meetings has something in store for the Colorado Rockies, perhaps some moves?
