DENVER, CO – From the moment I heard The Cashman cashed out Joe G, all I could thing about were the litany of suitable replacements on the market.  There are former player options (Jay Bell, David Cone), current coach options (Al Pedrique, Rob Thompson), coaches from other teams (John Farrell, Mike Matheny) and maybe even […]
