The Rockies will go after Carlos Ruiz

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies will pursue free agent catcher Carlos Ruiz.

My guess is that this begins the Wilin Rosario: first baseman experiment in earnest. For Mr. Rosario is a truly gifted hitter and a truly not-very-good defensive catcher. He’s a future Mike Napoli. Except Napoli used to catch fairly decently if I remember correctly.

Obviously the simple solution here would be to create some sort of Ruiz-Rosario cybog/golem thing, but the Rockies are a conservative organization and have never been accused of having that sort of brilliant vision.

    Mike Scioscia believed Napoli behind the plate was an abomination against the American way of life.

      To this day I have no idea what Scioscia had against Napoli. Whatever. In the end, Mike Napoli has a WS ring and TheSciosiaPath has a a revolving door at catcher.

    The Rockies and many other teams will go after Ruiz.
