Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies made an offer to Carlos Ruiz some time in the past 48 hours. This was not unexpected given what Renck reported yesterday (and earlier) of the Rockies’ clear interest in Ruiz.

There is a lot going on in the free agent catching market, what with Brian McCann Jarrod Saltalamacchia and A.J. Pierzynski all looking for teams. As it is the Rockies have a fine hitting catcher in Wilin Rosario. He just can’t catch worth a lick, so his future is at first base or the outfield.

    But the real question is, did they make him an offer he can’t refuse?

    I like choose
    But time to part ways
    he has planters fasciitis ( s p spelling? )
    and that is bad bad and reoccuring
    20 million over 2 yrs. No way

      On the topic of plantar fascitis, I speak from experience. It can be cured. The problem is, you can’t cure it in the middle of a season. It takes lots of rest in the off season.

      But on your second point I agree. A 34 year old catcher coming off an OPS 90 year. 2/$20 is too much.

    I’m a Phillie fan and a Ruiz fan but coming off a 3yr 8mil. contract he better take the 2 for 20.
