I think if the Rockies signed the trio of players I suggest they sign, that they would be a lot better team in 2012. Here they are:
1. Kelly Johnson – Lefty hitting 2B Kelly Johnson would love playing half of his games at Coors Field. After losing out on Mark Ellis (he signed with the Dodgers), the Rockies need a new starting 2B and Johnson would be a nice upgrade for them.
2. Chris Snyder – Righty swinging catcher Chris Snyder could back up Chris Iannetta and possibly push him for P.T.
3. Bartolo Colon – Righty starting pitcher Bartolo Colon proved last year that he’s all the way back from rotator cuff problems. He would fit in very nicely at the back end of the Rockies’ starting rotation.
