I know we have a lot of pitching in our system, but I figured Hughes was being considered as a potential future Bucco closer. Maybe he doesn’t have the elite strikeout stuff yet but he’s young. Any thoughts on Hughes as a closer a couple years down the road?

Not really enough of an upgrade anymore to give up anything for.

Carlos Gonzalez away from Coors Field (2012): .264, 7 HR, 22 RBI, .322 OBP, .451 SLG, .773 OPS.

Is Carlos Gonzalez a good player? Yes. Is he a great player away from Coors Field? No. He would not be worth what the Rockies would want for him.
