Rockies decline $5M option on RHP Betancourt
The Rockie’s Gm and owners should be shot for declining this option. I was only 5 million dollars for perhaps the best set up man in the game. Last season he pitched 56 innings giving up only 41 hits with an ERA of 2.73 he also struck out 61 and picked up 20 holds. Are these the numbers of someone that isnt worth 5 million ? At 34 Im not sure he will get any more than a two year deal. But a team with a need for a quality set up guy would be hard pressed to find anyone better.
