I hope Baldelli can find his way back onto a Major League squad as a 4th outfielder at some point.

As for Looper, I think he would be terrible in Colorado. Sure he can fill several different roles for the club, but playing in Coors Field would be a nightmare for a pitcher who threw up a 5.22 ERA while also giving up a league leading 39 homers.

Here is why Looper would be a great fit…attendance is down in Denver, and it’s largely due to the drop in video-game like statistics from the players, especially home runs. Braden Looper is a one man solution to this problem. 4 out of 5 games the Rockies could continue to play excellent, sound baseball. 1 out of 5 games could be “Braden Looper’s throwback nights” with balls rocketing out of the ballpark as if cannons had been installed behind home plate. This makes everybody happy. Yet another genius solution presented by the always savvy Mr. Ringolsby.

I have a question that is probably has a pretty obvious answer, but I like to be positive. What happens if a player retires before his contract expires? The team keeps the money that has yet to be earned, correct? (Sorry, I know that was dumb. Lol)

Correct, its kinda like an opt out clause.

Rockies should not sign Looper… Don’t let his 14-7 record fool you! He got a lot of run support…
