Jeff Passan lede about the Rockies on ESPN plus (love it)

Dick Monfort, whose family made its fortune in the cattle business, knows more about B.S. than anyone in baseball.

For more than two decades, Monfort has been peddling a particular kind to the fans of the Colorado Rockies, the team he owns and runs. It goes something like this: The Rockies, under the stewardship of Monfort, want to win.

No, really: The team that in its almost-30-year existence never has won a division title, that in the 23 years since Monfort took a prominent role has been better than .500 just six times, that is regarded throughout the industry as one of baseball's worst-run franchises, that still doesn't have a World Series ring (they were swept in the one Series they made) -- that team, Monfort says, wants to win. Like, for real, he actually says it. A lot.
If you have ESPN plus, it's worth reading the whole article
