A real shame. Taking the easy way out in the Nolan Arenado, Jeff Bridich debacle and siding with the three time golden glove winner and potential hall of fame third baseman Arenado and firing Jeff Bridich would be such a shame. Jeff Bridich has done so much for the Rockies. Look at all the good things he’s brought to the team. He was the director of baseball operations for their World Series appearance. I believe that’s it. Could be wrong but I know he hasn’t done a damn thing to improve the Colorado Rockies for the upcoming season.
Now maybe I’m wrong and he did improve the team, but I don’t think I’m wrong in saying signing zero MLB free agents to a contract all offseason is a bad look for a GM. Especially when the team went 71-91 last season and the owner predicted a 94 win season. Where the fuck are those wins coming from Monfort? Explain to me how a team that added zero new players and pissed off the best third basemen in baseball so much that whether or not he’ll be on the team has come into question wins 23 more games in a year?
Long story short they don’t. Rockies are predicted to be in the bottom four teams of the entire league this upcoming season. The Colorado Rockies may use that purple mountain majesty for their logo but they are far from a majestic franchise. The Rockies have a losing record in its 25 years of existence to the tune of a winning percentage of .471%. That winning percentage overall makes the one World Series appearance from the Rockies back in 07’ look like a fluke. Shit it might have been considering the Rockie
