After last night's 5-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, The Colorado Rockies have lost 12 of their last 14 games. Things are downright miserable in the Mile High City if you play baseball. Well, unless you're a visiting player, that is. With new reports of player frustration and that GM Jeff Bridich may be on the hot seat, the question becomes: is being the general manager of the Rockies the hardest job in baseball.
Yes. That's the short answer.
The long answer is just as simple, though. The Rox haven't been competitive since 2010 and haven't been to the postseason in six seasons. No matter what the organization has tried to do since then, nothing works. The offense will always work, of course, but the pitching has gotten progressively worse.
It seems there is no code breaker in the world who can figure out how to pitch at Coors Field. The only bright spot in terms of the staff is that there are a few prospects in the pipeline who could be pretty good when their time comes. Or they could be ruined by Coors Field like so many before them.Read more... Join the Conversation...
