Rockies owner Dick Monfort has had a good couple weeks of speaking his mind. He told one fan that he shouldn’t come to Rockies games if he didn’t like the product. He said that maybe Denver doesn’t deserve a team. Now, in response to a question about who was responsible for the Rockies’ poor season, Monfort named a name:
So, Monfort was asked, who is responsible for the Rockies’ 40-55 record this season, good for second-to-last place in the National League?
“You would have to say it’s Bill Geivett (Rockies assistant GM),” Monfort said. “He’s responsible for the major-league team.
Maybe that’s true — we have no idea whose ideas hold the most sway in Colorado — but I can’t remember when an owner or team president ever publicly held an exec responsible like this. I mean, other than when they’re actually fired, with said firing meaning to speak for itself.
Gotta feel good to be Geivett walking in to the office today, eh?
