Jeff Bridich was somewhat mocked for saying "yes" three weeks ago when asked if his team could win a World Series in 2018.
The laughter has quieted down now.
On Friday, the Colorado Rockies went all in, signing electric 32-year-old closer Wade Davis to a three year, $52 million contract.
The money going to Davis brings the sum of the Rockies offseason spendings to $114.5 million. The closer is the crown jewel in the foursome Colorado has already acquired which includes Bryan Shaw, Jake McGee and Chris Iannetta.
At first glance, all these names and all this money may make it seem like the Blake Street Bombers are taking after the Bronx Bombers and trying to win via free agency. But this couldn't be further from the truth.
