How much is $6 million worth to the Colorado Rockies?

Last Sunday, the Colorado Rockies pulled another head-scratcher by electing to not offer starter Jon Gray a qualifying offer. Whether or not Gray is worth the $18.4 million price tag that would come due if he accepted the offer is certainly debatable, but the way in which the Rockies have handled the situation is what is most baffling.

At the same time, Trevor Story - Colorado’s other homegrown talent reaching the free agent market this off-season - was issued a qualifying offer by the franchise to the surprise of no one. This was a foregone conclusion given Story’s career numbers and a formal decline by Story’s camp seems imminent before the November 17th decision deadline.
