The pits.

I’ll admit, I’m a pessimistic person, but I am just itching for a day when I can come onto this site and NOT gripe about how this is one of the poorest run organizations in baseball. Everyday it just seems to get worse. Thats said, here goes!

Can you guys believe how fast they went from the WS to one of the worst teams in the league?

Normally when teams go through fire sales like the Marlins did you can count the returned product.

With 3 (2 if you don’t count Francis resigning) left from the World Series you would think “wow I bet they traded all their good players for prospects”.

Umm. No. They squandered it all away.

Then you look at the team and realize they aren’t cheap players. But no one really wants any of them except Tulo and Cargo. But you trade either of them and half your fan base is distraut beyond what they currently are.

As Ag points out you’re handcuffed to some over sentimentality. To others because they simply stink. You throw darts to pick what pitchers to bring in. You think 7 #5 starters equals aces.

Geez. This organization almost has a feeling of being an expansion team, just going through the motions hoping to luck into being good rather than making the moves to get there.

Thankfully, most of us are baseball fans and watching still gives us some pleasure in seeing the game played. Mostly it is watching amazing things coming from the other team (Trout killing us in every at bat, for example)…I am probably as optimistic as you are pessimistic and I know both of us would much rather we were talking about how long a winning streak will last, if CarGo can indeed be the first Rockie to win the triple-crown, etc…… Read more »

You know, one of the bright spots this season is the last three starts from Francis…Fuentes just got DFA’d, so we could really start rebuilding our ’07 team if we wanted to 🙂 GET ME JOSH FOGG’S NUMBER!!!

I admit it that I am actually an optimistic baseball fan and feel pretty much this same way about the the Rockies. My new daily routine is to check each of the minor league (Rockies) teams to see if there is any hope in the farm system. Again I am an optimist, but not alot to get excited about on the farm – at least not for 2013 anyway. And yes the MLB Rockies have fallen apart much faster than… Read more »

Why shouldn’t the team quit on Tracy? He quits on the team regularly. One of the well known thoughts is that no lead is safe at Coor’s Field. So the Rockies get behind and JT pulls the starters because in his mind the game is already lost. He would rather lose an extra inning game than keep trying to win it because playing too many innings messes with his plans. He has made the statement that you only need to… Read more »

Don’t know about that, but he does have the “win in 9 no matter what” mentality, so he will throw everything he can at the game to win in the 9th, even if it doesn’t make sense…

Let’s get Josh Fogg (Great one Jaredean) to be a player-pitching coach. It can’t be any worse than what we’re putting on the field now. I would elect Jason Giambi for player-batting coach, too. I’m also going to throw my 7 year old grandson into the mix as he could manage this team better than MFLJT (I can think of 3 words that fit MFL better than Manager For Life). Come to think of it, he might do better than… Read more »

Like Orange Rocks I am usually optimistic. Every day I check my sports site and hope that Jim Tracy has been fired. Then the day goes downhill from there. Seriously a few of you mentioned that it doesn’t seem like winning is his #1 priority. He’s gotta get this guy rest, gotta get this guy a chance to play, gotta make sure this guy doesn’t throw more than 75 pitch, etc. etc. But he rarely talks about winning. By the… Read more »
