Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is hands down one of the most talented outfielders this league has to offer.
He’s pretty much a younger Carlos Beltran and I honestly believe he’ll be the leagues future Beltran. I may get some heat because of that statement, but the guy has what it takes to hit that level.
Now the Colorado Rockies were rumored to be interested in shopping Carlos Gonzalez this winter but according to Tracy Ringolsby of MLB.com, that isn’t going to happen. The team is currently looking to add pieces, so I don’t know why they would trade one of their more powerful bats on their roster.
You never really know for sure in this league. I would like to think that Gonzalez won’t be moved, but the guy won’t be in Colorado for the remainder of his career after starting off with the Oakland Athletics.
In his five year experience, CarGo averages 20 home runs a season with nearly 70 RBI’s. That’s pretty great for a guy who has under seven years of Major League experience.
They would really set them back a couple seasons if they traded away Gonzalez. Build around the guy.
