All-time Colorado Rockies

Apr 30, 2009

Time to put on your John Denver CD and take a look at Colorado’s baseball history. Rocky Mountain High, Colorado. As you might expect, the lineup looks formidable while the pitching staff looks ridiculous.

    I think the alltime Ray team can beat this one.

    Better pitching I suppose.

    The Rockies would definitely have to out slug teams because they would have a team ERA of about 8.00 or 9.00. I’m still waiting for an expansion team to come to Death Valley to offset the high altitude of Denver. LOL!

    I can’t think of anyone for this team. Nice post!

    That would be funny, although attending the games would’t be that enjoyable. Gatorade would be sold by the case.
