Rockies could go after Wright aggressively...

Ian Stewart struggled with injuries and then never got off the ground offensively, Colorado then tried Kevin Kouzmanoff who was recently waived after an unsuccessful try out for the position. 

Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes the Rockies will attempt to make a big splash this off-season by obtaining a big bat at 3B.  Renck has heard the Rockies may be aggressive in attends to trade for David Wright.

I could see three scenarios in which Wright would be available:

1) They re-sign Reyes and want to create payroll flexibility.
2) They let Reyes go and decide to completely rebuild.
3) They get an offer they can't refuse.

Opposing executives expect the Rockies to be aggressive in their pursuit of the Mets' David Wright. The Mets have said he's not available, but that could change if they commit to re-sign free- agent shortstop Jose Reyes for big money. Wright, however, is not without his issues. Though just 28, he has dealt with a back injury that limited him to only 102 games last season. Wright is owed $15 million next year with a $16 million club option for 2013 that can be voided if the Mets trade him. Hitting anywhere but Citi Field would likely boost Wright's numbers. source Denver Post
