The 28-year-old two-time All-Star has gone 20HR/20SB for four straight seasons and is in the 4th year of a 7-year, $80M deal (boy does that sound inexpensive for his type of services).  He hasn’t been able to exceed 135 games the past three season, the Rockies will need him out there every day to compete with the likes of the free-spending Los Angeles Dodgers and two-time World Champion San Francisco Giants.  There appears to be no risk he won’t be ready to go day one of Spring Training.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
