According to Rotoworld and MLBtradeRumors, The Rockies are expected to make a heavy push for David Wright this winter.

So i present you with a question. At what cost would you be ok with seeing the face of the Franchise be traded.

The Rockies have some interesting prospects they might consider dealing, like Wilin Rosario and Drew Pomeranz, but who would they consider dealing. Both of these players could end up as very useful pieces in the Mets organization, Rosario could very well be the catcher of the future that we have all been looking for. With a career 41% CS% throughout the Minor league career, his defense is obviously his strong point, but his power has shown with a .267 and .207 ISO in his two years in AA, and his .250 BAPIP suggests that he has been rather unlucky in the average aspect, and his K% hasn't increased to drastically. But his drop in BB% this year is concerning.

And on to Drew Pomeranz, This young lefty was the centerpiece of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade this July, so how interested the Rockies are in letting him go is unknown. A more complete scouting report can be found Here, but if your not interested in reading it i will do a quick summary.  Pomeranz is a three pitch pitcher, a fastball, a 12-6 curveball, and a changeup. His fastball is described as "explosive through the zone" and "he is aggressive with it going right after hitters". His Curveball is his best pitch, he uses the same grip as Cliff Lee, and is described as a swing and miss pitch. Pomeranz looks like an Ace in the making, and his 10.6 career K/9 is impressive. His 1.87 ERA may not be maintainable, but with his FIP of under 3, he sure looks legitimate.

Would we actually get either of these two particular prospects, I don't know. But if we were able to get either these or players of this caliber, i wouldn't be heartbroken if Sandy pulled the trigger. So flame and troll as you wish, but i am curious, at what cost, if at all, would you be willing to part ways with David Wright.
