I know Colorado fans think management is being cheap, but the current state of the market in baseball is outrageous. Due to the market conditions, the Rockies had to take a chance to get better next year.

Jason Jennings types are a dime a dozen in baseball. Jason Hirsh type talents are not.
Perfectly stated.
