Whoa, man. Either we all unknowingly ingested some killer hallucinogens or the baseball card company Topps actually named the Colorado Rockies their "Organization of the Year" and, since none of us are seeing tracers, it must have actually happened at baseball's winter meetings.
According to the company, the award "is based on points given for the number of players in the organization that have received Topps awards during the season in various Minor and Major League rookie categories".
Jeff Bridich, the Rox' player development director said: "It shows what happens when there's a lot of good work from a lot of different parts of the organization, and on the part of the players." Seriously. He said that.
Dick Monfort said, "Needless to say we are very proud of this and we have a lot of talented players throughout our system." I'm not kidding.
And here we thought the Rockies sucked.
Are you going to bogart that vitamin C?
