CHARLIE BLACKMON RUMORS

Player Profile #137: Charlie Blackmon | OF | COL

Skill is, of course, really important, but time and time again we’ve witnessed players with less skill, outperform more gifted players for no other reason than the context in which they are playing.

From Chicago to Colorado: a case for Jeff Samardzija

It is no secret that the Chicago Cubs are shopping around Jeff Samardzija. Again he has rejected an extension offer from the Cubs, which means he’s the hottest item on the trade market. The seven year veteran’s time with the Cubbies seems to be drawing to a close, and there’s a perfect fit for him out west. And the Colorado Rockies should heed Horace Greeley’s timeless advice...

Highs and lows for the Colorado Rockies
