I like most of the deals the Rockies have made this off season. I would have kept Ian Stewart, but who knows that deal may even be a good one in time as Stewart has struggled the last couple of seasons. Other than that they've been stock-piling young pitchers and gotten a couple of vets to bolster their lineup (Cuddyer and now Scutaro).
Mortensen looked pretty good when I saw him a couple of times last year.
Next Saturday is the first big SABR meeting of the Rocky Mountain chapter, and one of the features is a Rockies' employee who will have a full report on what they hope to accomplish in 2012. Usually I go to these SABR meetings dressed pretty much neutral, but this year I'm thinking of wearing my Cardinal jersey in honor of our World Championship last Fall.
