Beimel Showed No Interest in Rockies

Zach Clum asks: “I was just curious what the word on Joe Beimel is. I mean he had an under 3.00 era, and also was great with not giving up home runs. I honestly thought he would perfect for us and he always seemed interested in pitching here, unlike most pitchers. With Taylor Bucholtz out for the first month of the season. Did we even tryg to get Beimel?”

Tracy answers: Beimel signed with Washington, a one-year $2 million deal in the last week. He showed no interest in Rockies ovetures. He was seeking more than $3 million, and I have seen some reports that he was actually asking for a two-year deal at $4 million a year, but I have not had anyone confirm that.
