The Rockies are willing to deal Marco Scutaro

Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Rockies are willing to deal Marco Scutaro but the price is “high.” Frankly, the Rockies should be dealing anyone not named Tulowitzki, Gonzalez or Fowler because this stuff just isn’t working.

If you want Scutaro, you’ll be getting a middle infielder who is hitting .283/.334/.382 on the year.

    He’s 36 years old, has no power, and an okay OBP.

    Definitely comes with a high price tag.

        As a surrogate for Dan O’Dowd (god, it makes me nauseous to write that), I’ll take that deal.

      I loved Scutaro as a Red Sox, but the idea that the price tag would be high is literally laughable.

      The letters LOL have lost all meaning, but I literally laughed out loud at the idea that Scutaro commands a high price tag.

    The Yankees must make a move on Cargo. If not take Span from the twins, but only if they include Diamond.

      lol

      You and what farm system?

      I mean you’re trolling, right?

    • tuloisgod - Jul 6, 2012 at 5:07 PM

      If O’Dowd traded Gonzalez for anything less than a package of Clayton Kershaw, C.C. Sabathia and Josh Hamilton, there would be rioting in the streets of LoDo … if anyone in Denver bothered to notice.

    I imagine this is a situation in which a high price on July 6th becomes an extremely reasonable one by the 30th.

    I wonder what the Red Sox would be willing to part with?

    • rollinghighwayblues - Jul 6, 2012 at 3:16 PM

      Ironically, I wish they would give Clayton Mortenson back for Scutaro. Someone to fill in for Pedroia that’s not named Nick Punto.

      • shaggylocks - Jul 6, 2012 at 3:42 PM

        Seriously. I wish the Rockies would take Mortenson back for Scutaro, but that ain’t happening.

      • The Rabbit - Jul 6, 2012 at 3:43 PM

        Yeah, but Punto is scrappy….at least that’s what they tell me.
        How else could you explain him on any Major League Roster?

      • 18thstreet - Jul 6, 2012 at 5:06 PM

        18thStreet mad. 18thstreet smash.

      • tuloisgod - Jul 6, 2012 at 5:11 PM

        Um … no. You’re stuck with that bill of goods, just like the Cubs are stuck with Ian Stewart. (Thanks for Tyler Colvin, suckers!) It’s moves like those that give Dan O’Dowd any longevity, although they hardly make up for trading Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom for Jeremy Guthrie, or giving up Houston Street for some spare parts from Oakland, none of whom lasted in the Mayor Lees.

    When it comes to trades, the Rockies are the Columbus Blue Jackets of MLB. Consistently asking for way too much in return and then wondering why no one makes any deals with them.

    • seeinred87 - Jul 6, 2012 at 3:46 PM

      And Scutaro is more Mark Letestu than Rick Nash.

    The Tigers will be more than happy to trade Raburn for him
