At 46-50, it is hard to imagine that the Colorado Rockies would be seriously considering buying a the trade deadline, but thanks to the National League West being a collective disappointment, the Rockies find themselves just 4.5 games out of the division lead. For a franchise with memories of "Rocktober" still fresh in their minds, that gap seems almost inconsequential. Add to that the recent return of star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and there is just enough ammunition for Colorado to convince themselves that they have a shot at a post-season berth.

It isn't known if the Rockies will be buyers or sellers, but it sounds like they will be the ones buying this time and not the ones selling. One of the positions the Rockies may look to improve as the deadline approaches is their bullpen, which is needing one more piece to the puzzle. It appears that they have their sights set on one reliever in particular.
