I am not sure what came over me, but the chance to have Marco Gonzales on my roster appealed to me, I didn’t use logic that when Jamie Garcia went down with an injury that the #5 pitcher would not be Gonzales despite his terrific spring. I gave up Butler, a mainstay in Rockies rotation for years to come. A bad trade.

Good daily box score data,


Cutdown day

I made a bad trade this off season giving up Josh Bell for Aramis Ramirez. I didn’t research the trade well enough. I just remembered seeing Aramis at the All star game in 2014. I didn’t look at is second half of 2014 where his performance really fell off. Moreover, after the trade it was revealed he was going to retire after 2015. After reflection on making a bad deal, I decided moving on from Ramirez rather than taking on his bad contract of $25 in the upcoming draft.

I took a chance of waivers after the season and gave up Neil Ramirez for Homer Bailey. I drafted Bailey at $27 last year and when I decided to build for the next season, I traded him for Eddie Butler of the Rockies. At that salary, he is about $5-$10 overpriced. He has shoulder injury and will start year on DL. I cut him.

As far as Butler, he looked like the real deal after 2013. How easily we forget he will pitch in Colorado. He obviously had some form of an injury when he got the recall to majors in 2014 as he was blasted in his debut. I liked Marco Gonzales and given a chance to take on $10 salary in year 1 for Butler who was in year 2, I took the deal. My salary now was at $160

My salary was going to be at $160 coming into the draft. But, after some reflection, I thought I could get Grichuk back in the draft at less than his $10 price tag. Going into draft 12 players and $150.
