Thanks Ed! I appreciate you posting this my friend… I don’t know that i’ve read something this clear from Tulo, but i’ve sensed it from pretty much day one: “I don’t want to be the next in line as somebody who was here for a long time and didn’t have a chance to win every single year… (Todd) played in a couple postseason games and went to one World Series. But that’s not me. I want to be somewhere where… Read more »

I am not sure, especially after yesterday, but I think the dynamic is changing, at least, until the end of the season.

If that happens, I think Tulo stays… Read more »

How many times does a kid have to put his hand on a hot burner to realize that he shouldn’t put his hand there? How many times does a person have to go bankrupt to realize that they’re a bad money manager? How many years does a… Read more »

Folks, I hated the Matt Holliday trade. At the time I saw the Rockies in a pretty weak division with a club on the way up. Stats wizards said it projected as a fair exchage at the time — projected WAR from Huston Street and Cargo combined basically equaled what you’d get out of Holliday until he became a free agent. But you were shifting those wins from 2009-10 forward to what should have been the prime Cargo years. And… Read more »

Yep.

But bringing (extreme) logic to the table won’t work with an illogical Owner. The problem here starts at the top – the VERY top.
