"Both guys are great kids," Rockies scouting director Bill Schmidt said. "We're just trying to get them through the season healthy."
The two stars are in the middle of a tug-of-war between the Rockies and their football coaches. Schmidt would like to show both of them how many quarterbacks 6-feet and under play in the NFL (very few).
"I wanted to be in there," he said. "But then again, I don't make the decisions, and decisions I make like that aren't the right decisions anyway. When they make a decision and it's in the best interest of the team, you need to listen."
