Don't feel sorry for the fans. It's their fault.

I grew up in a baseball city. Denver is the farthest thing from it.

From Day One, Denver had this attitude of "We're just happy we have baseball." The bar has always been low for the Rockies...as 0-27 years of division titles proves. Listen to sports radio...in April they're still talking about the Broncos. Come September, nobody cares about baseball. The Rockies are just something to do outside in the Summer.

Monforts have just adopted the PT Barnum philosophy. As long as people show up to the games without much concern for the product on the field, maximize your profits and watch the value of your franchise soar. Players get too expensive, jettison them for washed-up veterans, second-rate players and rookies.

Until this stops being a complete Broncos dominated city, nothing's gonna change. And I sure don't see THAT happening.
