It was a star-spangled party at Coors Field in Denver on Thursday night, complete with flag waving, awesome fireworks and a sellout crowd of 48,533 noisy fans!
It didn’t help.
This was the 15th loss in the last 17 games for the Rockes.
Next to the hapless Arizona Diamondbacks the Rockies are the worst team in the National League.
Former Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss (pictured) was hired to manage the team despite having no experience managing a baseball team at any level. Not even "Rookie" League or even the Tee Ball division of Little League.
The lack of experience shows.
And don’t blame it on injuries. All MLB teams have injuries.
