    Kind of insane just how good this team is at home versus how bad they are on the road.

    I can’t stand the MLB rules that reward a garbage closer like Bard with a walkoff win by coincidence after he allows his typical 3 run blown save in the top of the 9th. Only system in the world that rewards garbage performance.

    I don't understand how they can be so bad on the road. Yeah, there's always going to be some discrepancy because of Coors. Seems like bad coaching / managing. Maybe the Monforts truly only care about selling tickets and not fielding a competitive team.

    Went to the 1st game of the series against the cubs, sat about 20 rows behind 1st base. I still love the Coors and the effort a lot of the players give. It's too bad the Monforts will probably never sell the team.
    Well see the funny thing is the fans are actually paying for a quality product when they are at home. It’s when they are on the road they aren’t worth a dime.

    It’s kind of crazy the gap this year between home baseball (one of the best teams in the league) versus road baseball (tied for worse in the league.

    The Rockies are currently only winning 24.5% of their road games. If they bumped that to 37% which is just 7 more road wins they would actually be an above .500 ball club. That would just be 20-33 on the road which is still bad. But that would put their record at 57-54.

    Not defending them as anything but a bad team this year but it’s just crazy to think that in any other year they’d be above .500 and in the hunt right now. But it just happens to be their worst road year in franchise history.

    Most of it is that once Bridich left along with his two assistants, they were never replaced. So we have a makeshift front office and the Rockies have a reputation of being difficult to deal with , so you didn’t have anyone really qualified to put a deal together. And Story was obviously under the impression that he was getting dealt. We are such a train wreck of an organization.

    I don't want to lose story but I don't believe he has any intentions on staying in Colorado after season ends. I love story don't want him to go, but rather get something for him. They pulled bard of the block why? Lol he's been hot garbage I just don't understand what they are thinking.

    Yeah Bard should be gone. I don’t know I’m just sick of always dumping all talent. Story might be gone but you never know. I don’t t Yanks were really offering much after they went after Gallo and Baez.

    This whole MLB process of always selling top talent to contenders is why those teams never contend. And why the Red Sox, Yankees and Dodgers are. It’s not just high dollar markets. Teams just give them players. My brother is a Rangers fan and said they didn’t get a single top 100 prospect from the Yankees in return for Gallo. It’s a mindset in MLB I just don’t care for.

    Story might leave but hey Blackmon has never left and Gray said he doesn’t want to leave.
