Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd is snuffing out rumors that the Rockies would trade Brad Hawpe if the price is right, according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Saunders writes,
The Rockies have six weeks to evaluate their competitive chances before the non-waiver trade deadline. Baseball Prospectus gives the Rockies a 27.5% chance of making the playoffs. Hawpe said he would void his $10MM 2011 club option and become a free agent if he's dealt.
