Rockies Mailbag: Why Would Trevor Story Sign Colorado With Last Place Rangers?

Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders with the latest installment of his Rockies mailbag.

Ask a Rockies – or MLB – related question for the Rockies mailbag.

Why would Trevor Story want to join the Texas Rangers? They were worse than the Rockies.
– Sandra Sprecker, Salina, Cannes.

Sandra, that’s an excellent question.

Let’s start with the story told during the final series of the season in Phoenix. He was essentially bidding farewell to Colorado.

“I’ve always said that winning is above all for me, and the culture and the environment,” Story said. “Obviously geography. There’s a lot of different things in this, a lot of which are ones that we’ll keep near our vests.

There’s a lot to digest, but “obviously the geography” is a big part of the reason why the story might just sign off with Rangers. Story was born and raised in Irving, Texas, which is close to the Rangers’ home in Arlington. He still makes his offseason home in the Dallas area.

And while you’re right that the Rangers (60-102) were worse than the Rockies (74-87), the Rangers are expected to be the big spenders this off-season. In other words, they have come down from the bottom and want to rebuild quickly.

According to a November story in MLB.com, General Manager Chris Young and President of Baseball Operations John Daniels said that Texas is planning to be “proactive and aggressive” in free agency and that it is moving to spend larger than ownership. Gone if necessary.

There’s no grudge against the Rockies in the story, but from what I’ve been told, he doesn’t believe the franchise is close to being a contender.

And, of course, you can’t discount the money factor. Now it remains to be seen which team will offer the best deal to Story.
