Matt Holliday: The Great Escape
What Might Have Been
What might have been we'll never know. Matt Holiday might have led this franchise back to the promised land. Then again, maybe not. Suffice to say he would have been a Rockies favorite for years to come. But, as is always with the Rockies franchise, it gets back to the money or, should I say, the lack of it.
So this the farm system
Yep. Grow 'em til they get good enough to contribute and then, because they cost too much, ship 'em off for a bunch of new talent. It's a revolving door that will never end. Isn't it just easier to get season tickets to the Sky Sox. At least you get to see them before they get traded.
