If Rox want Prado FW should insist on Dexter Fowler

On June 20 Dexter Fowler found himself in Triple-A, demoted with a .238 BA and only two steals in 8 attempts. He was 3-for-33 at Colorado Springs amid discussion he was no longer in the organization’s long-term plans.

He returned to Colorado a few weeks later and, over the next two-and-a-half months, collected 22 doubles, 10 triples and reached base 40 percent of his AB’s. Now the  Milton High grad is deemed untouchable.

Or is he?

The Rockies insist he’s not available but beat writer Troy Renck suggests if they’re determined to get Prado they’ll have to part with Fowler.

I’d do that, though I’m not entirely sold on Fowler.

Then I see he has 39 triples in 405 games and a .355 OBP.  He’s still only 25 and would be under team control for three years. He’s fast and athletic, two qualities the Braves lack.

Yeah, I’d do that.

  1. Im salivating at the idea of Dex, Bourn and JHey manning the OF. Simple problem is we only have Brooks and *shutter* Hinske backing up the hot corner for 30 or 40 games. Do we throw money at Punto, Andy LaRoche, Betemit??
