Rockies-Cardinals Preview

Jaime Garcia's worst career ERA is against the Colorado Rockies mostly thanks to one disastrous outing at Coors Field, though he also has been poor in two home losses to them.

With Troy Tulowitzki traded, could Carlos Gonzalez be next?

DENVER (AP) Troy Tulowitzki's gone. Carlos Gonzalez may be up next. Possibly even just-acquired Jose Reyes, too. The Colorado Rockies are overhauling their roster in the midst of another dismal season. This time, no one is off limits.
