07:18 AM ET 10.11 | Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez aren't going anywhere -- not yet, anyway. Rockies owner Dick Monfort said Wednesday he does not intend to trade either all-star. "The plan is to keep them. Next year, yes. And my plan is to always keep them," Monfort said. "Is that the smartest thing in the world to do? I don't know. But for our fans I think it's the best thing to do." ... Despite consecutive last-place finishes, Monfort said he will not alter the structure that has assistant general manager Bill Geivett in charge of day-to-day major-league operations and reporting to Dan O'Dowd, who is in charge of the Rockies' player development but is also the boss of the front office. "I really don't think either one has done a poor job," Monfort said.

Why would these guys want to play on a team where the manager's only coaching experience was high school baseball?

Tulowitzki will be with the Rockies until his contact expires in 20 unless the Rockies pick up some of his salary in a trade.

I think the Monfort's are oblivious to the state of their franchise.
