Wouldn’t you know it, the Rockies second-ranked prospect Eddie Butler woke up with a sore back Sunday morning after his lukewarm start on Saturday. What a fitting way to end the season, another player injured while playing for nothing.
As far as the actual last game of the season, the Rockies lost 10-5. It would have been 10-2, but one of the very few bright spots in this season: Rafael Ynoa hit a bases clearing double in the top of the 7th to take the score to 9-4. Rosario’s solo shot in the top of the 8th was the last run the Rockies would put on the board in 2014.
Boy, the end couldn’t have come any sooner.
The most difficult part of the game was having to sit through Drew Goodman’s interview of Bill Geivett. Having to hear Goodman pander to Geivett, almost like he was honored to just be in the same booth with him, and listening to the softball questions was beyond painful. The replies from Geivett sounded more than scripted and the smugness of his tone really set ones teeth on edge.
WHERE IS THE ANGER IN THIS SYSTEM???
Why in the world do we have to sit and listen to the Root crew call these games like they are calling the 24th game of the season, not a single outrage in their tone or questioning of a club that has clearly lost its way long before #162?
Where is the anger from the players? Where is the sense of frustration?
WHY IS IT THAT THE ONLY CALL FOR CHANGE IS COMING FROM THE FANS???
If the sense of anger, frustration and urgency came from the front office, then it wouldn’t have to fall on the fans to express it!
Why is it that this club can lose 98 games two seasons ago and then follow it up going last in the NL West the next year and then finish 2014 losing 96 and NOBODY FROM THIS TEAM IS STANDING UP ON TV OR IN THE NEWS AND SHOWING THAT THEY ARE ANGRY???
NINTY SIX LOSSES!!!!
Do they not understand that that is the SECOND WORST RECORD IN ROCKIES HISTORY!!!
WHERE IS THE ANGER? WHERE IS THE FRUSTRATION FROM THIS CLUB????
