Are Nuggets fans pissed? They are willing to let him go to Toronto for 3 million a season. The Executive of the Year who has rebuilt the Nuggets very quickly after Melo left. I know he was the lowest paid GM in the NBA but you gotta think if a couple months ago Kronke offers him 2 or 2.5 million he would have taken that.
He did a good job after that mess he inherited. Liked the Pac-12 move and other sports, but he failed at football so that's the reason he's gone. I don't mind Bohn's firing, it was just stupid to let him hire a football coach and then fire him.
The Rockies have been focused on Bryant this spring and will almost certainly snap him up if he is available. If not, Appel is a more than satisfactory fallback option. Colorado is sensitive to industry whisperings that it can't develop pitchers and has revamped its instructional staff to include a new organizational pitching guru in Mark Wiley, a longtime pitching coach in the majors who would be tasked with helping Appel get to Denver quickly and safely.
