    And they've told us they don't care.

    • They're on pace for a 37-125 record. And today's loss proves it's possible.

      • I love the Isotopes and the Rockies and watch them as often as possible. The Monforts seem like horrible owners. Wish someone who loves baseball would buy the team. Must be hard to be Charlie Blackmon. Impression I had, whether it's correct or not, was that his best friends on the team were Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, D.J. Lemahieu and Nolan Arenado. Arenado's trade seems punitive and stupid. Will always root for the Rockies.

          I’ll always root for them but I can’t really get that emotionally invested in a team this bad.

            Then you might not understand what it was like to be a Broncos fan in the Sixties. Not sure I understand what emotionally invested means. Got a team. Watch it. Root for it. Stick with it no matter what. That is all.

              Well I wasn’t alive in the 60’s so there’s that. What I mean is I don’t watch the games. But I don’t really watch baseball at all anymore. I still love the sport. Have my youngest playing it. But I just don’t watch much MLB anymore. I don’t invest $150 a year or whatever it cost for MLB package. Where as I’ve been an invested Sunday ticket subscriber for a decade for the Broncos.

              I’m not talking like rooting for some other team. But when the Rockies ownership dumps all their stars with 0 effort to get good prospects in return I have 0 desire to pay to watch them.

              • This is the first year I’ve been able to splurge on MLB season pass (actually a lot more reasonable than NFL Sunday ticket, so I may continue to do so) so I’ve been able to watch more Rockies than I ever have. Don’t even really care that they aren’t winning a lot right now, just sitting here falling in love with baseball again. Loved the Blackmon 3 run walk off homer the other day!!!! Anyways, question for you Rockies fans in the Colorado area. I’ve been looking for tickets to a game, preferably this summer in July sometime (if we can make it out that way from Oklahoma) but I have a large family (6 kids, me and the wife) and it doesn’t seem like I can make a game under $800. Are there cheaper tickets that I can’t find online?
                Personal goals: GOAL WEIGHT = 250lbs
                Weight loss needed for FGW = 120 lbs
                Weight lost so far: - 24 lbs

                  My wife called about this a couple of weeks ago because we will be there in July. What she was told was that due to limited capacity the team wasn’t even selling tickets beyond May yet. So the insane priced tickets on sites like stubhub are season ticket holders scalping limited tickets.

                  Now that they’ve announced 50k fans for June and beyond you should start seeing much more reasonably priced tickets go on sale.

                  • Not going to act like I was getting false hope or anything but it was getting nice potentially running the table on the home stand and then in true Rockies bullpen fashion they blow back to back games in the 9th.
