God, grant Charlie Monfort the serenity…

"I slowed way down the first couple years with her, because I found somebody stable and we spent all the time together; so I wasn’t doing all the party stuff.  I was still drinking quite a bit, but wasn’t doing all the partying, wasn’t going out." - Charlie Monfort

"The legendary Rockies batter turned Rockies coach had 274 home runs during his career and a lifetime batting average of .299. Impressive stuff. Clearly, Bichette knows what it takes to move the runners in Major League Baseball. But, if his predecessors took guff (and ultimately lost their jobs) because the Rockies were not making the most of their hitters, shouldn’t we be giving Bichette some scrutiny, too?"

"As wonderfully as the entire team played, it was Arenado’s night – one that he will certainly never forget. And for Rockies fans it was another reason to smile in what has so far been a magical season"

"The Rockies aren’t supposed to be good enough to snag a series from the Giants on their home turf. The fact is, Colorado has played better than most folks expected and, if we focus on the small victories, there remains plenty of cause to be upbeat"

Last Place Here We Come!

"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."

For the second straight year ESPN Insider has ranked all 30 MLB teams in order of their future power rankings over the next five seasons.

The rankings consider the current major league lineups, the farm systems, quality of management and financial flexibility of various franchises and how those particulars will affect their competitiveness not only for the coming season but for the next several seasons.

If the rankings are correct, the Colorado Rockies, who score 16.2 on a scale of 1 to 100, are doomed to be terrible for a long time to come. They ranked dead last in ESPN's future rankings.

In other words, get used to watching a bad team.

The Broncos are so good that they're boring

Mark Kiszla said "don't do it". But Walt Weiss did.

The Colorado Rockies have announced that Weiss will replace Jim Tracy as the Manager of the Colorado Rockies.

Weiss, who was previously the skipper of a high school team, will have his work cut out for him. The Rockies are among the worst performing teams in all of baseball. The front office has been on the hunt for its latest patsy. In Weiss they've finally found it. Even Kiszla thinks the Rockies made a good hire. The question now becomes whether or not he will be given enough rope ... or if he will wind up being hung without it.

The Rockies are for sale! Well, 7.3%, anyway.

The Denver Post is reporting that it's looking to unload its 7.3% stake in the Colorado Rockies.

The Paper, which is part of MediaNewsGroup, which is part of Digital First Media, is moving on in order to focus on "content creation and advertising sales on multiple platforms".

The statement issued by Digital First Media, as quoted by the post online, does not mention the sale being motivated by the outlook for the Rockies moving forward, but it's tough not to wonder why, if the stake was once a good investment, it isn't one anymore.

Of course, most people outside the Denver media were not aware that the Denver Post owned a piece of the Rockies to begin with. They do. It's a testament that their affiliation with the team didn't affect their coverage of it, however, that Mark Kiszla still works there.
