Colorado Rockies Runners on 1st…and 2nd Guesses: Bettis has to go

I’m sorry, Chad Bettis, but your time must come to an end as a member of the Colorado Rockies when this most disappointing of a season ends, if not sooner.

The Rockies have team control of Bettis with one more year of arbitration eligibility. However, they need to let him go before he gets to that point and wastes another chunk of payroll next season. He is making $3.325 million this season and the last thing the Rockies need is another overpriced arm in the bullpen (i.e. Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee) who can’t get anyone out.
