Left-handed Jeremy Affeldt and right-handed reliever Jorge Julio were the only two Rockies of the 57 major-leaguers to file for free agency Monday. Both had good seasons for Colorado. In Affeldt's case, he might have priced himself out of the Rockies' budget, posting a 3.51 ERA in 75 games. Affeldt, as he correctly pointed out, "is not a left-handed specialist," which will increase his value on the market.

Can we renew contract negotiations with him and see what his interests are now?
