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.
