Colorado Rockies: The David Dahl move and the logic (or lack thereof) behind it

Wednesday night’s news of the Colorado Rockies non-tendering David Dahl, effectively making him an unrestricted free agent, is only further proof that whatever Jeff Bridich is planning for the Rockies in 2021 is beyond any non-sensical neurosurgical fantasies we could ever possibly conjure up with an Ivy League degree.

Wednesday Rockpile: Will the Rockies go shopping for non-tendered free agents?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, December 2, 2020 Last season, one of the biggest names to drop as a free agent immediately following the non-tender deadline was Kevin Pillar. He was eventually signed by the Boston Red Sox to a one-year deal (and eventually traded to the Rockies).
