  • Denver Post: Rockies express interest in Matt Morris

    Rox miss out on Witasick
    Team expresses interest in Matt Morris
    By Troy E. Renck

    For starters, the Rockies like Matt Morris, contacting his agent Tuesday.

    For relievers, the Rockies lost out on a top target, Jay Witasick, who elected to re-sign in Oakland.

    Witasick, given a two-year deal, helped stabilize Colorado's bullpen last season, posting a 2.52 ERA in 32 games. The Rockies reluctantly included Witasick to facilitate the Joe Kennedy trade to Oakland that landed utility player Omar Quintanilla.

    The market would have to break kindly for the Rockies to have a shot at Morris. The Cardinals' right-hander made nearly $7 million last season, and the going rate for starters of his ilk last winter was $21 million over three years. Morris has property in the region, however, so Colorado made the courtesy call.
    "They wanted to at least let us know that they were interested," agent Barry Axelrod said.

    Holy cripes, talk about a match made in heaven. lol
    Dude. Can. Fly.

      Awesome.

      Then we can trade John Gall and Bo Hart for Jeff Francis and Brian Fuentes.

        I thought Morris didn't have an agent. Maybe he got one though.

          I wonder how Morris' psyche will rebound after his first 14-hit, 11-run outing.
          His mind is not for rent, to any god or government.

            He didn't up until the past 16 months or so....he wanted one this time around to make sure everything was done right and thus, he chose Kile's former agent....

                    Morris pitching in the high altitude? Hope the airplanes stay away from Coors.

                      I hope Denver's air raid sirens still work because bombs will be dropping when he is on the mound.

                        Has NASA been alerted?
                        I mean we have a lot of satelites up there and a space station as well. They may need some time to divert all the interstellar traffic.

                            Oh Barry.
                            I'm picturing a regular season matchup at Coors between Milton and MoHRris.
                            Do we have anything on Mars we particularly care about?
