I guess this officially means the end of the road for Eric Young Jr. as a Rockie?? It really befuddles me as to why they wouldn't give him a shot this year. He has great On-base numbers and he is a very efficient base stealer.The Rockies have acquired Marco Scutaro from the Red Sox in exchange for Clayton Mortensen, reports ESPN's Jim Bowden (on Twitter). Troy Renck of The Denver Post first reported that the two sides were finishing up the trade.
Scutaro has a little pop in his bat and can play both MI positions. That is a plus i guess. I dont really get this trade for the Rockies. The Red Sox needed to clear salary to be able to sign Roy Oswalt, so i understand their side.
