|The Rockies acquired Brett Anderson for Drew Pomeranz.|
The front office deserves plenty of criticism, and I have certainly been vocal in my opinion that change is extremely necessary. However, the trade of Drew Pomeranz to the Oakland A's in exchange for Brett Anderson isn't a bad move. In fact, it looks like it could be really good for the Rockies.
Watch Pomeranz on the mound for five minutes and it was clear that he looks like he would rather be anywhere than on a Major League mound. His body language was the only thing worse than his mechanics. The deer-in-the-headlights look took on a whole new meaning with the lefty.
The fact is, Pomeranz wasn't going to find success in a Rockies uniform, and he wasn't going to materialize into the pitcher that made him the centerpiece of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade and the most impressive member of his draft class less than a year after being selected.
