Just curious why you say this. Dexter's stats are pretty much the same as they have been all of his career (looking at his career stats he's actually pretty consistent). The only thing he's added this year is some power but that doesn't translate into leadoff hitter for me. He's been tried at the leadoff hitter position so many times but he just doesn't take enough walks.

I had high hopes for Scutaro too. I wish EY Jr was a little better to take the leadoff spot.

What I find funny is that everybody's sad because he has been around the "longest" in this organization. Funny, our pitching has pretty much stunk for the longest in this organization too....Despite drafting a pitcher pretty much every 1st round pick.

The rockies needed to just man up and fire him.

He's now Dan O'Dowd's aide or something. He'll be fired after the season ends. They just did this to let him go out of the organization quietly and save the guy some dignity. When he gets fired from his secretary job for DOD, you won't hear about it or see it because he's not in a visible position.

This team is a disaster though. We need to gut everybody after the year. I wonder if the Monforts will do anything though. Probably not.

Apodaca leaving is the first step. DOD has to be next, even if it's in the offseason.

Btw...WTH was Tracy thinking leaving Moscoso in as long as he did.

No way. At best he'll get mid 30s, but he can be great if he just hits 25 a year with a crapload of doubles and scoring a lot of runs. Harper is the greater long term prospect. I think people that like Trout over Harper are just Harper haters.

They're saying Wilson Chandler may be traded. One offer is for the 7th overall pick. I'd be fine with that, package it up with the 20th and get top 5

7th pick for Chandler I'd say yes before the other GM even finished the sentence.

I like Chandler, but we were pretty darn good without him. That makes him expendable in my book.

I'd then offer both the picks and maybe a player to the Bobcats for the #2 pick.

You gotta figure Dunlap has close connections still to the Nuggets and that this would be completely 100% do-able.

Makes no sense on both sides really. In a draft filled with role players, you're trading Chandler for it? Charlotte isn't trading #2 for Denver's picks.

The Bobcats have highly publicized they are contemplating moving down from #2.

I'd love to see Beal or Kidd Gilchrist in a Nuggets uniform

For the #4, #24 and cavs 2nd was the rumor. They're not trading far down, they'll take anyone from T-Rob, MKG, Beal , or Harrison Barnes. Cavs then jump over Washington for Beal.

If the Nuggets are offered the 7th overall for Chandler they need to take it and run.

Played through the majority of the season without him and faired well.

Who's there at 7 though? I rather have Wilson than a guy like Drummond,Walters, Perry Jones, etc. I wouldn't mind if it was for Lilliard or Zeller. It's also not really sending a good message out there trading away player just months after signing him to a long extension. First Nene, and now Chandler.

Chandler held out for the big bucks though. The Nuggets were ready to have him play day 1 when he came back but I think Wilson's agent was told to hang out for more money.

Anyways, I just don't think we even need him.

Chad Ford is saying Denver will choose Royce White if he's there at #20.

Don't want.

Can't shoot and is scared of flying. Plus I see him as a #3. Then you've got Chandler, Gali, and this kid.

Is he only going to play home games?

We know all they'd do is trade that pick away anyway.

These prospects are so articulate.

I can't believe these guys are millionaires.
