Tower Diamondbacks are in “Go for it” Mode!
While it is true that there remains a lot of time remaining in the off season, it is also now obvious that the current reigning NL West champions see an opportunity to dominate the NL West over the next couple of years. While the Rockies have been very active with AAAA level starting pitchers and various marginal starting pieces like LeMahieu, the Diamondbacks by there own admission are “going for it” now.
My question for the esteemed ITR group is should the Rockies be going for it in 2012, or rebuilding to compete in 2013-2014 and beyond? Just not sure the Rockies can keep up in 2012 while waiting for DLR and Nicasio to return, and at the same time trying to gain some MLB experience for starting pitchers like Pomeranz and White. Maybe this is the real reason the Rockies now seem to be out of the Willingham chase? Oh well - DanO might not get yet another chance to add that missing big right handed power bat, hmm?
Meanwhile the Padres are terrible, and the Giants and Dodgers seem to searching for several answers as well.
