Byrnes learns

DREW1015.gif

What series is Eric Byrnes watching? He must be in a van out in the parking lot with his twin brother Jeff Spicoli, the always stoned star of the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, smoking something besides baseballs. Maybe he'll finally come to the conclusion that the "lucky" Rockies did outplay the D-Backs when he's sitting at home watching the Rox play the Sox in the World Series. The Rockies have outplayed, out hit and out managed the Diamondbacks every step of the way. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Mr. Byrnes.

We are on the verge of one of the most improbable sports stories I have ever covered in my 25 year career as a sports cartoonist. To think that the Rockies are a game away from an appearance in the World Series is just flat out surreal to me. I keep thinking it's one of those things that's supposed to happen in the book of Revelation right before Gabriel blows the horn.

Please, oh, please leave your comments. This is just too good to blog about alone.

    Drew,
    it was pretty obvious to me after watching Byrnes run into the left field wall, that he has done so many times before... His comments are the product of several severe head injuries, it was flat out entertaining, he was genuinely suprised when he ran into the wall? Hilarious lol.

    1 win away!

    I've been a sports fan for a long time and I hope the good citizens of Denver savor all these moments in the past few weeks and weeks to come.

    As a baseball fan, you can wait and wait and wait for a team like the 2007 Rockies!

    I think Byrnes is doing what everyone in Denver is trying to do. Make the D-Backs and Rockies become a permanent rivalry. He can talk some trash, get booed and love it. It is the same thing the Denver fans are doing, talking trash on the fans in Arizona that throw bottles and can't sell out a game. I would love for this to become a fierce rivalry, but there is one problem. The Arizona fans could care less about their team. You can never have a one sided rivalry. If you read the message boards on their websites they have things saying, "Hey, we are seeing some good baseball. No need to spoil the series with trash talk." They are bragging that they can be civilized and not judge Rockies fans. They don't understand how to form a rivalry. What do you expect from a bunch of pretty boy fans with bad tans and finely trimmed Miami Vice 5 o'clock shadow. They are too busy drinking Mikes Hard Lemonade and talking on their cellphones to know anything about baseball, or sports for that matter. How about them Cardinals? Oh, and the only reason The Great One is in Phoenix is because his wife needs to be a close private flight away from Vegas so she can gamble away more of Gretzky's money. Get out the brooms, this series is over. Hopefully the first time Jimenez faces Byrnes, next year, he puts one in his ear.

    I've suffered through many poor Rockies seasons while I watched my friends jump on the Yankees and Red Sox bandwagons in the past.

    These last 4 -5 weeks have been magical and I know it will be a run I tell my grandchildren about one day.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Hollywood one day makes a movie about these events along the same lines as the move 61*.

    What an improbable....We will likely never see a run like this again. The stars only line up like this every so often. Enjoy it while you can. I know I will.

    Good God.

    What the hell do you expect Byrnes to say?

    He doesn't owe the Rockies or their fans anything. The Rockies GAVE UP ON HIM. They traded him to Baltimore for a career underacheiver who isn't even in MLB anymore. If I were Eric Byrnes, I'd have every reason to bash the Rockies at every turn.

    It's simple. The Rockies sucked it for 9/10 of the season and got hot at just the right time. They have played decently, but let's be realistic. They HAVE benefited from some sketchy calls by umpires. They have benefited from other teams simply not playing up to regular standards. They also have not been subject to devastating injuries like many team they have been playing.
    People here complain about the Rockies not getting the respect from America.
    Well, wake up. America knows as much about the Rockies as Rockies fans know about the Tampa Bay Devil Rays people. Without looking, I'll bet no one here could name a starting pitcher on Tampa's roster. Who's Tampa's 2nd baseman? Who plays center field?
    So, look. They've played WAY over their heads for a long time now. But look. They're like the one hit wonder music group. Even if they actually win the WS, no one will care outside of Colorado. No one else is pulling for them, because no one cares. Guess why?
    Because they have only been hot for a month. It's not like they did this all year long and people had time to figure out who these guys are.
    And the thing is this - When streaks like this finally come to an end, it's generally like hitting a brick wall. This could all end in a very sudden, very stunning way when it ends.
    Team on rolls like this get so used to winning, that when they finally hit the wall, it's fatal.

    This note to "defender" the idle ramblings of Byrnes are just that. The Rockies got rid of him, because why? He hit a buck 92 for us that is why. If you read the recent Sports Illustrated article on him, it tells of his true character. A self-serving greedy individual who lives for pleasure. Where is the heart of a true sportsman?

    I am tired of hearing about bandwagon jumpers too. I travel over 125 miles each way in all kinds of weather as a season ticket holder. There are thousands like me cheering when there was nothing to cheer about. The Rockies have been created many times over. FINALLY WE HAVE THE TEAM. I for one thinking as I sat in the rain this is special to all true Rockie fans and no grouser will rain on our parade only God can do that. Certainly not Eric Byrnes.

    What did you wake up and take a drag of Drew? The Rockies are nothing more than the Florida Marlins. A team that had a freakish amount of luck for a short time, and a team that has major ownership issues that will fracture the team soon enough. They have maybe another year together and then it's contract time. The Monforts will not ante up. They've already made a bundle by hitting the lottery with this band of young, inexpensive players. Now they have justified that they can win while paying nothing.

    Uggla and Crawford are the 2B and CF for the D-Rays. I don't know a starting pitcher, but Reyes is their closer.

    The Rox played average ball all season up to the middle of September. They didn't suck. They were on pace for a .500 season. Even then I pined for a playoff race. But who knew.

    This notion that "true" fans spend good money on a team that up until this season has finished 4th or 5th in the NL West for the past 10 seasons is garbage. For the past few years its been an average of 25,000. Far better than the 2 time World Series champion Marlins.

    I say come one, come all get on the bandwagon there's plenty of room. History is in the making. Byrnes and his big mouth make great fodder for message boards, but his reckless play is the issue. Throwing to the wrong base in game 2 - a big mental lapse. Running into the fence last night - just plain dumb.

    The most amazing thing about the Rockies, there defense! Just a year ago you would have thought that Garrett Aktins would be the heir apparent to Todd Helton at first base because of his poor fielding. Now, even in the 9th of a 4-1 game, Clint is letting him play instead of Carroll. Tulo and Kaz are as good as it gets in the middle. Taveras can fly. And Helton, well he's just being Todd with his golden glove. Unreal what is taking place.

    I don't need respect from the East Coast media to know that the Rockies are something special right now!

    I guess I can understand Eric Byrnes (as in burns too many blunts!) comments as a feeble attempt to motivate his young team. But really, given how the Rockies have played, why would you want to give them more reason to want to kick your teeth down your throat!? Idiot! Way to give the hottest team bulletin board material. Hope you figure while you watch the best defense in MLB history move onto the Fall Classic.

    Oh, and BTW, a team with the best defense in the history of the MLB is not a fluke for all of you detractors. They had to play well all year to compile numbers like they have.

    Go Rox!

    I think that it's ridiculous for certain people to run their mouth without understanding the facts. Eric Byrnes was not shipped out of Colorado because of his low batting average or because the Rockies were "out to get him" or anything like that. The Rox wanted Kelly Shoppach (C) from the Red Sox, the Red Sox wanted Larry Bigbie from the Orioles, and the Orioles wanted Byrnes. At the last minute, the Red Sox backed out and the Rox were left with Bigbie. I understand that Byrnes could be upset about that, but if he's going to run his mouth to the media, then he should understand that he's going to get what he gets from the fans at the stadium and the media like this cartoon.

    I've got the world's smallest fiddle playing for Byrnes right here. I'd rather have the Rockies getting outplayed and up 3-0 than being 0-3 and outplaying the D-Backs any day.

    I can't stand sanctimonious sports fans. Every sport in every city has 'em. The old "I stuck with them through thick and thin and the rest of you are just bandwagoners so you're not as good as me" shtick is tired and worn, speaking more to the person who says it than the person it is directed at.

    Look, this town supported the Rockies with sold out stadiums for years and years - far better than most towns with MLB franchises. It wasn't until after a decade of being fed terrible teams, huge contracts for pitchers who either got arrested for picking up street whores or got traded while the Rockies paid the remainder of their inflated contracts to come back to town and beat us that fans figured they had better things to do then spend an evening in LoDo. Maybe a bunch of those fans got back to playing ball in their recreational city leagues, read a few more good books, met their families again.

    Don't blame them for taking a sabbatical from a piss-poor product on the field and call them "lesser fans". In the priorities of life, I think it is more fair to question the fans who stuck around Coors Field about their choices than those who bailed. I mean, if the best thing you have to do for 81 nights and days a year is watch a pretty lousy team, get a life!

    So, now that we've all been surprised by what's happened in purple this past month, hooray! Go Rockies! After fifteen long years they've given fans in this town reason to reset their priorities to include MLB once again. This will last into next season and perhaps even longer. Now that this franchise has demonstrated that they are capable of putting something on the field that is worth paying $20 for parking, $30 for a ticket, $7 for a beer and $5 for a hot dog to watch fans will come back to the stands. But I don't blame them for figuring that spending over $100 a night as a couple or close to $200 a night as a family simply wasn't worth it to watch the Rockies before this magical run.

    WCH and all of the other Rockies detractors just sound like a bunch of whiny bullies who want everyone else to be miserable because their own lives are miserable. I really feel sorry for you.

    The Rockies are just awesome right now. They have shown that they are the best fielding team in baseball. They get key hits when they are needed and the bullpen is just superb.

    Not only are those who have tried to say this team is not good wrong, they are terribly wrong. This team is awesome. They took a lot of the year to put the pieces together, but they have put them together at the right time. No matter what happens from here on out – they have shown that they are THE BEST TEAM IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE. All of the detractors can say what they want, but the 2007 Colorado Rockies have the National League Championship to prove that they are the best team in the NL.

    I cannot wait for the World Series to start. Each game is more exciting then the last and the ride has been wonderful. I hope this train just keeps on rolling, but no matter what, the ride has been great.

    To the 2007 National League Champions… Thank You for giving all of the working men and women who are lucky enough to be Rockies fans a great ride. Let’s keep that train rolling.

    Happy Rock-tober – bring on the AL champs, whomever they may be..

    GO ROCKIES!!!

    Kman, that was the dumbest piece of garbage I've ever read. Please send me back those ridiculously misused 5 minutes you just stole from me.

    I don't know if you guys get "news" way out there in the midwest, but the Red Sox are just about done. How are they still being treated as if it's their god given right to make it to the series?

    Drew,
    Just turn this comic upside down for the end of Game 4, with Eric Byrnes' face down in the dirt, instead of face up. I love Karma!

    Hey Rockies Fans, you talk a lot of shit for fans who have never seen their team win a fuckin' CHAMPIONSHIP. Hey, how about them Broncos. You know your your city sucks when Jay Cutler is too good for you.
