Colorado Rockies Prospects - Prospect Investing Tips
David Dahl recently got the call to the Majors and has stayed hot. He currently has a 10 game hit streak with 3 HR's and a .370 batting average. Prices have gone up but not as much as I expected. Why is this the case? I think it is two factors. The media and location. The Rockies are 3rd place in the NL West and 8 games out of first place. They may get covered regionally but not nationally. Highlights of their games are no where to be found on ESPN or FS1. Also, it seems that the altitude of Coors Field plays a role in demand for Rockies prospects. If record breaking numbers are not being put up or if the player is not a top ten superstar prospect, prices don't move as much as they should. Could you imagine if David Dahl or Brendan Rodgers were Dodger prospects? Prices would be much higher on the market. Please consider these factors in the future when investing in Rockies prospects.
