Number of rockies could be on the block

It would take a big offer for the team to trade Carlos Gonzalez, but his value has never been higher. As for pitching, Colorado could move Charlie Blackmon for a top-of-rotation-type starter, writes Jim Bowden. Boone Logan and Jake McGee could also return strong prospects.
