Another trade rumor for your consumption and expert opinion...The Rockies are apparently interested in Ryan Theriot according to the Denver Post.
Theriot, 30, is an interesting name since he wouldn’t figure to be just a stopgap at second base. He’s a .287 career hitter who has stolen 28, 22 and 21 bases in the past three seasons and is on pace for 26 this year.
Theriot lost in arbitration to the Cubs last winter, settling for $2.6 million instead of the $3.4 he requested. He would be in line to make $4 million-$5 million next season.
Monfort wants Theriot
