His future is apparently Rockies bench purgatory. If he doesn't get traded via waivers I throw my hands up as to what the Rockies are doing.

Is it bad coaching or a hidden injury?

His plate discipline went south 2006-2008, having a 79/76 BB/K change into a 40/100 shouldn't go unnoticed. This year he has some strike zone judgment back and his power has fallen off the map.

Surely there is a hitting coach out there that can fix him (assuming he's not hurt). :-?
If he gets traded somewhere I might buy into him, should cost nothing.

I have no clue what his future really is, but it seems every time there is a thread about him here at the cafe, he hits. So far today: 2-3, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, 2 R, BB

If he could only keep it up.

That's assuming wants to trade for him though. I'm sure the Rockies have attempted to move him this season.

As for his future - some spot starts at third base, pinch hitting, but mainly sitting on the bench watching the team play well without him. ;-) It'll be interesting to see if someone gives him a starting job next season.

He did have 4 RBI's to beat the phils yesterday. I think it's just an off year for him and the rockies should wait for him to heat up. He'll be an excellent asset in the playoffs
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
