"Simply put, the Rockies have become a cheap date night for the residents of Denver, Colorado - that’s what the Rockies are and that’s what the Rockies will be until fans stop buying overpriced Coors Light and supporting the joke of a baseball team which plays at 20th and Blake."

the Rockies are a joke.
I would have quit following the them in May of last season if not for Peter Burns and his #RoadTo100 themed analysis of Denver’s purple clad losers.
It was awful to be a Rockies fan last year – and unfortunately, it’s going to be even worse to be a Rockies fan this year.
It has become obvious that the Monforts could care less about the product which takes the field in the top of the first inning every night at Coors Field. All the Monforts want is for the stadium to be about half full each night and for about half of those people to buy two or three Coors Lights.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at the Rockies starting rotation. I don’t see how Jhoulys Chacin, Jorge De La Rosa, Jeff Francis, Juan Nicasio, and Jeff Garland are capable of winning more than fifty-five to sixty games. I mean seriously – four of those guys missed all or most of last season with injuries and Jeff Francis is in the twilight of his career. Don’t kid yourself; this is a pitching staff that Regis Jesuit High School could light up.
Speaking of Regis Jesuit High School – are you not insulted that the Rockies hired a high school baseball coach after the WORST season in franchise history? I don’t see how Walt Weiss can go from coaching against the Cherry Creek Bruins to coaching against the San Francisco Giants without some major growing pains.
Simply put, the Rockies have become a cheap date night for the residents of Denver, Colorado - that’s what the Rockies are and that’s what the Rockies will be until fans stop buying overpriced Coors Light and supporting the joke of a baseball team which plays at 20th and Blake.
Unfortunately, Coors Field makes the Rockies a fun product for consumers despite the awful baseball played by the home team. All in all, Coors Field sells itself - it doesn’t need the Rockies to win for people to come out and spend seventy-five dollars on any given Friday night. People flock to Coors Field because it’s a great atmosphere regardless of the product on the field.
This year should be the most painful season to endure in Rockies’ history. The Rockies did next to nothing to improve the team after losing ninety-eight games last season. And yet, the fans will continue to pour into Coors Field to unconsciously support the joke that is the Colorado Rockies because it’s the best place to pregame before hitting the bars in LoDo on a summer night.
So let’s buy a rockpile ticket, jam out to Tulo’s walkup song, purchase overpriced Coors Light, talk about how great the Broncos are going to be, and suffer through another losing season with the Colorado Rockies.
Brace yourselves Denver - it’s going to be a season to forget at Coors Field. Last place, here we come.
