DENVER (AP) His team mired in another midsummer nosedive, Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort had seen enough and was finally going to do something about it.
So, he fired off some emails - to complaining customers.
The Rockies' 96-loss season will be remembered for many blunders and missteps, none bigger than in July when Monfort went so far as to say that if the fans weren't happy with the bad baseball they were witnessing that maybe they shouldn't come to Coors Field. And that perhaps the city wasn't deserving of a major league team anymore. He later softened his stance.
