Buzz: Rockies Suggest for Niese for Fuentes

According to the Denver Post, the Rockies have asked the Mets for LHP Jon Niese in a deal for LHP Brian Fuentes.

Similarly, the Rockies have asked the Red Sox for RHP Clay Buchholz, and the Yankees for RHP Ian Kennedy.

…to me, the news here is that the Rockies put niese on the same level as buccholz and kennedy, which is good to hear…

…by the way, from what i can gather, these are not hard-and-fast offers, but are a general sense from the Rockies to each time on what fuentes could cost, assuming each team is interested…

…i still believe fuentes will end up on the Rays or Yankees, though the Marlins have reportedly expressed serious interest as well
