That would make sense.
I was also going to rub in the Arenado trade, but didn't want to stray too far from the cave!
I think this chart will have to change soon, team will crap out earlier than Allstar break.
Wow, you found a Drew Litton cartoon. He's a legend here in Denver. Well done sir!
That is a good one. Totally captures the essence of a Rockies fan. Except, maybe the offseason one. Anyone who pays even the slightest attention to the team's moves during the offseason (and that includes me, I pay *slight* attention), well we are pretty much beaten down to stumps by now. So we don't have nearly that optimism.
But come opening day, when spring has spring and flowers are blooming, yeah we do allow ourselves that moment of hope. Especially when the team gets off to an 11-5 start and is leading the National League West on May 4. But then comes the next 2 months with the inevitable 18-42 stretch, and voila', your season is over.
Monfort and Bridich are two of the most despised people in Denver sports. And rightly so.
The only salary dump of an infielder this talented was probably A-Rod, who was traded for Alfonso Soriano, a proven 5+ WAR player who had a top 3 MVP finish and was the same age (prime) Rightly so indeed!
