Wrong again

When the proposed free-agent deal between former Shreveport Captain Yorvit Torrealba fell through recently, I blogged that Torrealba would likely not be heading back to Colorado.

So much for conjecture.

Torrealba re-signed with Colorado on Thursday, passing his physical, which appeared to be the holdup in New York. So instead of three years, $14.4 million and the grand stage of New York, Torrealba is heading back to the mountains where he revived his career.

He should be happy about that. The Rockies' brass is high on Torrealba, especially the way he handled young pitchers Ubaldo Jimenez and Franklin Morales. With those two pitchers in Colorado for the forseeable future, keeping Torrealba behind home plate at Coors Field seemed to be a must.

Now, thanks to an overly cautious Mets medical staff, the Rockies have one of their key parts back.
