This is close to being a winning team, in spite of Dan O'Dowd and the Monforts' best efforts.
Your post was dead on here. I keep looking at that lineup and thinking we should be at least close to .500 and then they disappoint every year.

Luckily 1B/OF are probably the two easiest places to find help. They could take any old vet and stick them in there. Bullpen's also pretty easy to acquire, and a fifth starter might take some dough but finally this team should come around.

Helton's salary was an albatross around this team's neck for the past 3-4 years. We should finally be able to recoup some depth with his money gone, although honestly they're still going to be paying his contract for some ungodly 20 years or something. How O'Dowd signed that deal and is still around, I don't get that one either. The Rockies pride themselves about being smart, precise, and calculated and then they hamstring the team with that one. Weird.
