Is this Blake St. or Wall St.?
The cold winds of Rocktober await. There will be no parades or World Series tickets or pandemonium in the state of Colorado this year. It's hard to know which is falling faster, our bank accounts or the Rockies? Suffice to say neither are in great shape. Still, there is great solace in knowing this...there will be some great seats available for next season.
Skip the Holliday season.
I say let Matt Holliday go already. I remember hearing this football coach from some little school in Northern Nebraska on sports talk one night on the way home. He was asked if he recruited in Colorado very much. "Not much" he replied. "Any kid who would rather live in Nebraska instead of Colorado is just too stupid to play for me." So that, too, is my synopsis about the Matt Holliday mess. If he doesn't really want to be here, then why make him stay? Sure, he can go on record as saying the Rockies can make it work and , oh, gee, I really want to be a Rockie. But it's all lip service isn't it? I mean, if he wants to be here next season and beyond the answer is simple. Fire Scott Boras and negotiate the deal. But don't hold your breath on that. Or you'll be as red faced as that arrow in the cartoon.
