We Stink and I blame ownership

The Monfort team sucks bad.

They gave Odowd and Hurdle extensions to sit in last place again.

They have Baker rotting on the bench so that MABRY!! can hit. And we have old man Finely stinking up Center field.

We have Ian Stewar and Joe Kochahcahocaknky rotting in AAA.

We traded Ryan Shealy for trash

They suck so bad it pisses me off. I go to lots of games and they do nothing to better the team :-t

The Monfort team sucks bad.

I agree, the Monforts are awful owners and should sell. Not that they will, of course.

They gave Odowd and Hurdle extensions to sit in last place again.

I'm not jumping ship and calling last place again, but third on down seems likely.

They have Baker rotting on the bench so that MABRY!! can hit. And we have old man Finely stinking up Center field.

Actually, they're all on the bench, so none of them are exactly stealing playing time from each other. Baker is slumping badly (hopefully coming out of it) while Mabry and Finley are horrible. I don't expect Mabry or Finley to be on the team at the All Star Break.

We have Ian Stewar and Joe Kochahcahocaknky rotting in AAA.

Never heard of em. ;-) Ok, I know who you mean. And neither is ready for the show. Plus, who exactly would they replace? Helton is doing amazing and Atkins is not hitting right now but is still a man who can rake. There'd be no point in bringing them up because they wouldn't get consistent playing time, which stunts their development. I actually think one or even both could be traded this offseason.

We traded Ryan Shealy for trash

I agree we got little in return, but Shealy wasn't exactly tearing the cover off the ball this season before getting injured, and there'd be no place to play him at with the Rockies either. Nonetheless, I think he should have been traded earlier, as his value wasn't very high when he finally was dealt.

They suck so bad it pisses me off. I go to lots of games and they do nothing to better the team

Yes, it's very frustrating. But, I'll continue to stick with my team and watch every game, cheering my heart out for the team I've come to love. I hope you continue to do the same, and maybe we'll be rewarded in a few years! ;-D

Yea I keep cheering but its just really annoying. They have sooo much talent.

3 Allstar Calibar Of's 3 Allstar Calibar Infielders

an Allstar caliber closer and some solid starters including Hirsh who is unbelievably underrated


If you can't make that talent not be in last place then you've got a problem

This team drives me nuts. I really can't understand how they could be this bad with the lineup they have. Hurdle is a hologram -- he talks and looks like a manager, but that's about it. His descisions baffle me. I honestly feel like a lot of fans could run this team better than the ownership/GM in place.

But they do have a "Christian clubhouse" so I'm sure Jesus will help them win the WS.

Yeah I agree the Ownership does suck, I really wish they would sell the team to someone who will pay to keep the core players together and get the right free agents to help put this team over the top.

Man, I was really excited for this year. But its like this organization is trying to be lose--they trade for Julio to "improve" the bullpen.

Jorge Julio??? When I opened the Denver Post and read that I couldn't believe it.

The Rocks could have taken down Webb tonight until JJ comes in and promptly allows a homer, a single, and then walks a guy. :-t

Yeah...the second article makes me feel better about still pullin for my former home town team. Not like their "Christian Clubhouse" helped them finish the year last year...

Living in NJ, I don't get to follow the Rox as much as I'd like to, but damn, it would be nice if they'd finish in the top 3 of a fairly weak division.

The Christian Clubhouse is over focused upon. I'm pretty sure its not true.
