“Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.” -Albert Einstein
Props to Rockies fans who continue to watch different train wrecks with different faces, as seemingly no pitcher can halt the Rockies reeling starting cast. The numbers rank among the worst in the league in numerous categories, prompting some Rox fans to cover their faces while at Coors Field.
The bagged heads idea is ingenious. It serves not only as a sign of protest, but it shields you from witnessing one of the worst starting rotations in league history. The brutal outings makes watching TLC cross your mind. And such a nauseating lineup of toddler pageants, polygamous marriages, and terrifying surprise births is really saying something.
Pitchers have been shuttled up and down from the minors, others have been cut, and others traded. Nothing has worked.
The coaching staff adopted an entirely new pitching system, which hasn’t paid dividends. Jim Tracy continues to give hopeless, depressing postgame interviews night after night. The Rox would likely call in the services of Matt Foley, if available.
What can be done to improve Colorado’s MLB-worst pitching staff?
