We Will Not Be Optimistic Next Spring

Colorado went back to their old habits on the road trip taking a 4-1 loss against St. Louis Cardinals.  They struck out 16 times against a spot starter and company.  If everyone was like me, I spent the day following my fantasy football players on televised NFL games.  The Rockies has become so bad that RWO fans already knew that we would go 0-6 on the road even before they departed Denver for New York.

Bob in WV is asking the RWO class to repeat after him, “We will not be optimistic next spring.”  The RWO fan in me is hopping on this no-op bandwagon, but the RWO reporter in me is obligated to report the facts and avoid negative comments unless I want to be a Mark Kiszla wannabe.  Ed the ump wants to spend more time socializing and do less Rockies watching.

Speaking of RWO, it is a great site to keep us sane and avoid any thoughts of “suicide” (quit being Rox fan).  I will be taking a vacation in Hawaii departing this Saturday and returning the last day of the baseball season.  Jeem volunteered to pick up one day for me.  The RWO editorial staff wants to ask any RWO fan to volunteer to pick up rmh’s work while he is frolicking in Hawaii.  It is a great chance to try writing for a day or two and see if you like doing it.  That will give you an idea if you are willing to become a contributor for 2015.  RWO needs some help besides jeem and myself.

Speaking of spring training 2015, I will be there March 8-15, 2015.  We have a two-bedroom resort in Mesa with full kitchen and 2 bathrooms (about 30 min drive from SRF) in which the second bedroom is available.  If interested contact me and I will be asking for $500 for the whole week.  If nobody is interested, I will “lock off” the second bedroom and exchange it to another vacation spot.  In the past years, the RWOers have enjoyed socializing at the Tavern near SRF.

Rock-bottom. The worst season ever (although they MIGHT do better than the previous “worst” loss number – 98, I believe? – that’s splitting hairs). Terrible play, truly unbelievable injury list, and the same old same old management. I’ve never seen such disappointment among fans, and I’m right with you. There’s no fun left in discussing what ifs and maybe-that-guys and wait till next year when *blank* might happen. Thanks(?), Bob, for the harsh but true new mantra. We will not… Read more »

Perhaps we need to replace Coors Field with an indoor pressurized stadium. All fans need to proceed through an airlock to get inside. We could really mess with Jon Miller by raising and lowering the pressure mid-game as needed.

Do I detect a little optimism here? 😉

Sorry, RMH, but to do a write-up on the game I’d actually have to watch it. Right now I’m content to just start the game on mlb.tv after it is over and drag the bar over a bit and see the score, then repeat, stopping and going back only to see how the Rox scored. Using this method I saw all that I needed to see for each of the last few games within a couple of minutes each. Is… Read more »

Thanks again, Bob, for providing a little room to bitch…lose the freaking “this many runs until tacos!” Drives me nuts. I hope y’all aren’t eating that crap anyway. And Taco Bell and whatever that pizza place is have sure saved some bucks this year…lol.

RMH, that’s an amazing stat — 4 road wins since the All Star break. Optimism for 2015? If you’d asked me in May I would’ve said yes — Tulo/Cargo/Arenado as a great core, Blackmon breaking out big time, 2015 rotation of DLR-Chatwood-Gray-Butler-Winkler. But scratch Chatwood now, plus Gray and Butler had really disappointing second halfs with some injury concerns. And we all know about Tulo and Cargo. No, I am not optimistic. Not at all. … Bob, the old Metrodome… Read more »
