Javy Lopez hits the comeback trail

With Bad Altitude on the road, I will drop in the news that Javy Lopez (the catching Lopez) has signed a one-year deal with Colorado.

"Colorado is a place and a team and a ballpark that he's always liked," said Chuck Berry, Lopez's agent. "We looked at a half-dozen places that would be good for him to go. Colorado was one of them."

Before the deal was reached, the Rockies encouraged Lopez to visit Jerry Weinstein in San Luis Obispo, Calif. The Rockies wanted Weinstein, who once worked with catchers for the Los Angeles Dodgers, to fine tune Lopez's fundamentals behind the plate.

Weinstein was apprehensive at first. He didn't know how serious Lopez was about this assignment.

"I asked him right away, 'Why are you here?"' said Weinstein, who was recently hired to manage Colorado's Class-A Modesto team. "He looked at me and said, 'I want to be the comeback player of the year."'
