|Dan O'Dowd doesn't get it. Plain and simple.|
In case you missed it, Dave Kreiger, formerly of the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post, and currently co-hosting The Dave Logan Show on 850 KOA, had a sit down with Colorado Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd to discuss the happenings at 20th & Blake.
To summarize, O'Dowd pointed to his efforts to sign free agents, including Brian McCann, who signed a massive deal with the Yankees, and Carlos Ruiz, who re-signed with the Phillies for three years.
O'Dowd believes that Drew Pomeranz and Alex White didn't work out because they were rushed to the big leagues, so he won't do that with the clubs two top prospects, Jonathan Gray and Eddie Butler. Both of those players will start the year in Double-A.
Perhaps the greatest revelation was the intense desire to move Dexter Fowler. As has been the case in the past, when O'Dowd is done with a player, he doesn't talk about their baseball skills needing improvement, or what they could do to be a better player, he rips on their character. Sharp words are thrown in Fowler's direction in Kreiger's piece.
