I’m betting we don’t get Redding

Looks like the Rockies have almost finalized the deal for right-handed pitcher Jason Marquis. In exchange, Luis Viscaino will be heading to the the Cubbies.Jason m1.JPG

Jason is 30 and was making pretty good money with the Cubs. His 2007 salary was $4,750,000 and he brought in 6,375,000 for 2008.

His ERA for last season was 4.53,  with a lifetime average of 4.55.

This dude supposedly has a hell of a sinker when it’s working.  I hope so, that’s a chunk of change for a pitcher. On the plus side, this guy has been on teams that have made the postseaon for the last eight years.

 Experience is good. I wonder, does that mean Tim Redding is out of the question now? I was bucking for this guy.

Thanks to everyone who commented about who their favorite current player is. I never actually told you who my favorites are. If you read this blog regularly you know who my favorite Rockies player is. It’s Todd Helton.

 But, right up there for me are Ryan Spilborghs and Chris Iannetta. Ryan because he carries himself exactly as I would (you’ve got to make things fun and he does), and I think he will do a lot more for the Rockies when he’s a starter.

I can’t say that about many other Rockies starters.

I’m hoping that I can get autographs from the starters on Jan 24th at the Rockies Fest. I have a feeling that’s not going to happen.

You know I’ll be giving it my best. It’s not often you have all of the players and fans there at once with this kind of open atmosphere.

I’m sure they will have some setup where only two players are signing at a time and the line will be crazy long. Then they’ll change out the players just before I get up to the booth. 

Oh wait, I was thinking of the 2008 Broncos Fan Fair. Sorry, I’ll be attending the Rockies Fest with no preconceived notions about anything. I can always hope…D

My favorite player of all-time that I’ve actually seen is Reggie Jackson. It’s Reggie because I had a chance to see him play when I was a kid once. To be honest, the 1977 World Series is the first WS that I remember. 

My Favorite player of all-time who I haven’t seen play is hands down Pete Rose. Don’t try and bash him on this blog, it’s not going to happen. 

The family and I will be making an apperance at the Nuggets game tonight. I’ll have something up tonight or tomorrow late afternoon…D

Have fun at the game tonight. The Rockets have suddenly decided to suck.
I may or may not have a crush the size of Vega on Chris Iannetta. May or may not. He seems like a very nice guy–all the Rox do, actually–but he didn’t sign last time they were here. I hope he does in June so I can get a picture with him.

Enjoy the game tonight! I remember well the 1975 World Series – Red Sox & Reds! It was a great thing.

Regarding Pete Rose, I think he should be in the Hall of Fame. He is honestly an amazing player, and just because he gambled– he bet on his own team… that they would WIN, the fact that THAT is the reason that he isn’t in the Hall of Fame?! I don’t think that’s a legitimate reason. Good luck getting your autographs
