Posted Wednesday December 05, 2012, About: Heat should be on O'Dowd in Colorado
The biggest issues with Dan O'Dowd is his inability to analyze the younger talent pool. In his 13 years as the Gm, he has been responsible for drafting over 100 players, yet only 3 are on the current club. Another issue that comes up is ownership wanting to keep a low payroll. The fans may be right in asking for a change of ownership, but if there are other teams that have succeeded in the decade of 2000-2010, with a lower payroll than the Rockies. For example: Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins, Anaheim Angels and the Oakland A's. All of these teams have won their divisions and appeared in the playoffs, with a payroll that is comparable to what the Rockies had throughout the decade($78 Million). Other Gm's have been able win with a low payroll, O'Dowd just does not have the skills to pull that off.
