I was actually surprised he hadn't already been traded - I expected him to be traded last year because of the corner logjam the Rockies have, but that was before his monster September of course.

I think the Rockies really like him at this point because of his potent bat, his versatility (spelling any of the corner spots), and a big bat off the bench in a pinch hit situation.

So I think the Rockies would need to get something really nice in return, to trade him at this point anyways.

Well, I think the ascension of Stewart will have a lot to do with it.
