No fall guy - or accountability - in Denver

08:17 AM ET 05.23 | Dick Monfort knows Rockies fans want a fall guy, only he's not biting. Somehow it seems very wrong the Rockies can give manager Jim Tracy a job for life with nothing more than a handshake, while franchise owners Dick and Charlie Monfort take fans' hard-earned cash with a wink and a smile. There is no accountability in the Rockies' organization. ... I'm not going to tell you to boycott our joke of a baseball team, especially if you think the ballpark on Blake Street is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, ooh at Fourth of July fireworks or root for the St. Louis Cardinals. But you can tell all your baseball-loving friends: Empty seats at Coors Field are a bigger threat to [Dan O'Dowd's] job security than the lollipop fastballs thrown by Jamie Moyer.

QUOTE(#1):

The GM should be canned. He assembled this group of turds.They have two stars, a AAA pitching staff, and a mixture of has-beens and never-weres in the lineup around Tulo and CarGo. What the hell did they expect?

no other teams in the division getting better........oh well......

Poor Cuddyer-- he went from one bad team to another.

Dude... Jamie Moyer made the Starting Rotation...

Should have been an early sign of where the team was going...

Also... Note to the Denver Post - the Team Payroll went down $10 Million - so I wouldn't trump up that 'taking fans hard earned $$$' too much.

But never let the Facts get in the way of your Story

Last year was the first time since the team arrived here that I did not attend a game. this will be the 2nd year I will not attend a game. Tired of giving these fools my money.

I don't think the Monfort's give a **** quite frankly.
