Rockies Going After Carlos Ruiz

Source: Craig Calcaterra, NBC Sports [1]

Carlos Ruiz [2]Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies will pursue free agent catcher Carlos Ruiz.

My guess is that this begins the Wilin Rosario: first baseman experiment in earnest. For Mr. Rosario is a truly gifted hitter and a truly not-very-good defensive catcher. He’s a future Mike Napoli. Except Napoli used to catch fairly decently if I remember correctly.

Obviously the simple solution here would be to create some sort of Ruiz-Rosario cybog/golem thing, but the Rockies are a conservative organization and have never been accused of having that sort of brilliant vision.
