There’s no crying in baseball, but there is some complaining. After having a bad time at the July 4 Rockies-Dodgers game in Denver, when Colorado lost 9-0, Colorado fan Michael Ferguson decided to fill out a feedback form.
“I pretty much just filled out the survey and kinda wrote a little bit about how it’s frustrating to spend the money and go see [Rockies] teams that are constantly struggling all the time,” Ferguson told KREX-TV in Grand Junction, Colo.
But instead of getting a reply with an apology and plea to keep the faith, CBS reports that Ferguson received an electronic reply from team owner Dick Monfort that read, “If product and experience that bad don’t come!”
Judging from the lack of verbs and articles, it sounds like either Monfort isn’t used to typing or he was caught up in the heat of the moment.
In either case, though, it’s at least comforting to know that the organization is reading the feedback forms. Now if only they would care about what they said …
In the team’s defense, however, it’s hard to fix a team such as the Rockies, who’ve found themselves in a rut quickly. The team currently has the second-worst record in the NL West at 39-53 and just a 0.1 percent chance of playing any postseason games.
Next up, the Rockies will face the Minnesota Twins in Denver on Friday at 8:40 p.m EDT.
