Rockies Bump Up Hawkins Offer

Some hot news tonight...OK, not really.  The Rockies improved their offer to LaTroy Hawkins tonight, proposing a slight raise.

Hawkins made $3.25MM in 2007, and the Rockies declined a $3.75MM option on him for 2008.  Sounds like they'll have to come in around the option price to keep him.  Even worse, they already paid him a $250K buyout.  So it was an effective $3.5MM that they passed on.  That's right around the amount the Yankees reportedly offered.

I might be missing something, but it seems like the Rockies didn't handle this as well as they could have.
