Colorado 3B down the road?

Postby Trot Nixon » Thu Jun 29, 2006 1:45 pm

Garrett Atkins is having himself a fine season right now, on pace for a .310, 100, 20, 110, 4 season which is very solid. But the only problem is, Ian Stewart.

Does anyone know who follows the Rockies what they are gonna do with Atkins when Stewart gets called up next year? Could they move him to OF or 2B or are they looking to deal him to another team? Thinking about going after him in my keeper league but wanna know what they are doing with him next before I make my move

Stewart I think is struggling in AA so he isn't coming up yet.

Atkins is a great player. I can see the rockies trading some young guys in order to solidify their Rotation.

Its a big dilehma, and I doubt the Rockies organization knows what it will do yet.

As acs said, Stewart has struggled in AA (injured too) so Stewart might not even be in the big leagues to start next year.

Atkins has performed very well and it would be tough to trade him. I've heard talk of Stewart switching to the OF sometime but Holliday and Hawpe are doing very well in the corner spots and Stewart wouldn't be able to play CF probably. Same thing with 2B, but maybe they'll try and convert him.

Its a dilhema, but a good one to have if you are the Rockies.

The rox's need to trade for a CF. Cause Holliday and Hawpe are very good

Stewart is struggling quite heavily in AA right now.

I think Atkins needs to be traded after the end of the season assuming he continues to tear it up to raise his value. Rockies really need young arms.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I'd rather hold on to Atkins. Get rid of Mesa! :-t

I wouldn't say the Rox really need young arms...

Francis (25), Jennings (28), Cook (27), Fuentes (31) aren't exactly old. But yes, every team could always use more good young arms.

Jeff Baker I think also came up as a 3B and is supposed to be better than Stewart, but it looks like they've moved him to the OF.

All things considered, I think they'll keep Atkins for the foreseeable future.
