It's pretty cliche to say with the opening of Broncos' camp tomorrow, the Rockies season is effectively over to most people. But, with the opening of Broncos' camp tomorrow, the Rockies season is effectively over.
Some guy named Peyton Manning, the legal troubles on defense, the stocked WR corps, the Hall Of Famer at corner, even the tattoo'ed kicker, will trump anything the Purp do over these next two plus months.
There's dudes on the Rockies right now that aren't recognizable to the casual fan (save me the "they tore it up in Tulsa" argument. Exactly, Tulsa
. Look outside, this ain't Tulsa.) And meanwhile the Rox we've gotten to know are somewhere on the DL abyss. The pitching? It cringes just to write that word.
While the Rox hang their hat on the stellar attendance at Coors Field despite the losing, keep an eye on that. You thin they're will be 30k on a Tuesday in September? Friday night games with real high school football and the kids back in school?
So to the Rockies, basically thanks for a completely lost 2012. One where even near 500 ball would keep in the mind of Colorado sports fans. See you in Spring Training. There's a pennant behind every palm tree.RELATED: Souls of Mischief - "That's When You Lost"
