The Rockies are apparently interested in renting the services of Sandy Alomar Jr. for the remainder of the season. I can see why the White Sox would make the trade given that Alomar will be a free agent. But why are the Rockies who are out of contention in that dire need for two months of duty from a 36-year-old catcher? Don't they have a decent catching prospect in the minors? Might they be wooing him for next year? If so, why? Do they think his veteran leadership might calm the pitching staff? I guess it's worth a try.
It is gratifying to see the Phillies 1999 back-up catchers, Estelella and Bennett, getting to work together again (at least until Estelella's injury).
