I think the Rockies might go after a big time starter. I could see them dealing for Chris Archer. Here it is:

Rockies get Chris Archer
Rays get Ryan McMahon, Ramiel Tapia and Riley Pint.

Tampa gets some young offensive prospects and a potential future ace in Pint.

The Rockies get an ace who can push them into the playoffs and possibly beyond. He will eat a lot of innings to keep the bullpen fresh and will take pressure off of Sentezala, Hoffman, Freeman's and company.

I think you're right that the Rockies should go after a starter and I think they need to sweeten the pot if they want Archer.

While I love Pint as a prospect, he's only 19. Not quite sure I'd label him a future ace quite yet.

For Archer, the Rockies will have to give up premium, young MLB talent. We're talking the likes of David Dahl, Hoffman + 2 of their top 3 prospects in their organization.

Not bad, but I think it takes more to get Archer.

Maybe switch out Pint for Hoffman, switch Dahl for Tapia and add Dom Nunez.

@ Scottness89, I think that value is there but do you think Rox are willing to part with Dahl/ Hoffman right now? I don't pay attention to them enough to understand how much they currently contribute but my guess is enough to not part ways with.

I think putting a package around Rogers would be the way to go. It might hurt parting with your top prospect but it allows you to keep your team in tact this year and likely retain depth in your system.

The Rockies won't part with those guys. But the Rays aren't going to just hand Archer over. They will get premium, young MLB talent for him.

I think Dahl becomes somewhat expendable given that they have Cargo, Parra and Blackmon who are all left handed hitting OFs, not to mention Tapia on the cusp. And after giving it more thought, I think they'd trade Hoffman before Pint. Hoffman just reminds me of an AL guy. I think his repertoire could be shaky in Coors.

As for Rogers, I don't see Colorado moving him at all. He will be the shortstop soon enough. He's going to be more consistent than Story.
