Rockies see a little light

It's not 21 of 22 but, hey, it's a winning streak. The Rockies can finally see a little light. Thank goodness. Denver could use a little pick me up without the Avs and Nuggets around anymore.

    It's a single match in a galaxy of darkness.

    The Rockies were given the victory on Wednesday night. They did nothing to earn it.

    This "winning streak" won't matter once they go 1-5 on the upcoming road trip and then finish out the month on a major skid at home.

    The Rockies are a terrible ball club from the owners right on down to Manny Corpas. How Clint Hurdle still has a job is unreal.

    This team won't even win 70 games. 60 might even be a stretch. By the way, how many wins does Jeff Francis have this season? Oh yeah....right....I forgot. Zero. Just awesome for the staff ace one month into the season.

    This team is total garbage.

    The Rockies played in the world series just 7 months ago and now you want to fire everyone associated with the team from the owner down.
    Try following a hopeless team like the Royals who haven't sniffed a winning season in 15 years or been in the playoffs since before my son was born.
    What a spoiled bunch you have become!!!

    I know it's been a rough start this season, but I still like this Rockies team.

    We know from last fall this team has the potential, and I know this team. It isn't 10 new guys who I have no idea who they are.

    It's just nice to have a team you know, and know the team *can* play competitive baseball.

    The rockies have had a rough start. Injury's, and poor pitching are the real problems. There hitting as of late has come around.

    With that said, i still find myself wanting to watch this team each time they play. theres still a ton of basball to be played, and i think the Rockies can still have great season!

    go getem rocks!

    I'm completely fed up with the Monforts. This team is just plain awful. Why can't they spend some of the money they made off us chumps last year and buy a real pitching staff?

    If the playoffs started today, the AL teams would be Boston, Minnesota, the Angels, and the A's. The Yankees, Indians, Tigers, and Mariners would miss the playoffs. In the NL it would be Florida, St. Louis, Arizona, and the Dodgers. Can we please calm down? I know that a lot of you bandwagon fans are new to the sport of baseball but I'm gonna let you in on a little secret: THEY PLAY 162 GAMES!!!! Can everybody calm down? If they're still doing this by the all star break, then we can write them off, but some of your comments are downright moronic. Corpas sucks? That's why Baseball America (their job is to scout baseball players) ranked him as having one of the 5 best sliders in baseball. He's going through a rough patch. Let's just highlight the struggles of 2 of the greatest closers of all time: Mariano Rivera: blew a save in game 7 of the 2001 WS, blew saves in games 4 and 5 of the 2004 ALCS, has blown 20% of his save opportunities agaist boston. Trevor Hoffman: 2007 tiebreaker game, 2000 World Series game 3. Oh and Gene, it's impossible for the Royals to have had 15 consecutive losing seasons seeing as how if Pittsburgh has a losing season this year they'll set the MLB record for most consecutive losing seasons at 14. Nice try though.

    Its May 9th we took two of four with one of the worst rotations in baseball. Francis will rebound, Jimenez is still young and will mature during the season. We were at this point last year in May and we still made the playoffs by the way the line up is not hitting to its potential. I guarantee by the end of the year Francis will have 15-17 wins and we will be .500 this team has to much talent.

    Francis will be traded by July.
    Helton will be traded by August.
    Holliday will be traded before September.

    The Rockies are done folks. They had their chance last year.

    They blew it.

    So, Coach Q got the axe today, eh?

    Is Hurdle next? Because that's the only thing that will currently change the fate of the Rockies. Hurdle has failed. There is no other manager in baseball that has had as long of a leash as he has had.

    For the Rockies, it's also "time for a line change."

    For what it's worth, the Avs just made a major mistake in letting Quennville go. He is a solid coach. There isn't anyone better on the horizon. What are they going to do? Bring Hartley back? Have Granato re-enlist? Maybe they can get Glen Hanlon to come back from Finland.

    This is the beginning of the end of the Avalanche. Sakic's going to retire. Forsberg will retire.

    The Avs need to dump the old players and play the kids.

    It's time for a re-build.
