"The incurred intricacies? Of giving up a star player long with $50 Million. A. Ah, year, Jeff Bright It was absolutely right. We don't understand it. You don't understand what takes to do that job. Apparently, he doesn't either. Because he's not The general manager anymore. And that arrogance that Jeff brighter chant. Extended beyond the quote unquote. No, Nothing's like you and I Extended to the players in this staff that worked under him. It broken Can Rosenthal wrote A about how over the last couple of years, Jeff Brightest doesn't even listen to the people who are hired to a system. I believe the Jeff show. Was brought up. Somewhere in that that athletic piece. He's not it was aunt even listening to the people who were hired. You give him advice. His arrogance led to a fraying Of the relationship. Between the organ is a shin in the greatest player that has ever stepped foot. In that organ is a shin Regardless of whether Nolan are not. Oh had no real plans of staying in Colorado. It's certainly exacerbated the problem the way that Jeff bright each woz And there I have been people who Are very familiar with the situation that say if Jeff Bride Ege had done this A year ago. It's more probable than not that Nolan or not, I would still be here. There are other factors. No one are not as big as problem was. Jeff brought it. That's the reason why he's no longer general manager. The timing of this Leads me to believe that this had on Lee a very little bit to do with the on field product, if if at all, to be quite honest with you. I mean, they're there for They won What? Four of the last seven for the last five. I mean, You're playing well, they're winning baseball games. Yesterday was a covert restricted sellout. They've had five of those So clearly, Rockies fans Have forgiven the organ is a shin for train. Nolan are nado or they're just weren't enough people angry enough in the first place. Either way, the timing of this Is weird. And that's what leads me to believe. That it doesn't have much. To do with the Rockies. As their currently constructed. Maybe Dick Mom Furred just got done watching the Padres and Dodgers. Syria's like I did. And like I did it, Maybe he had this warped. Somewhat warped. View of reality where Maybe if things would have gone differently, it would be the Rockies in the Dodgers playing on Sunday night baseball wrapping up a two tremendous Syriza's In a Prell. When do we ever care about baseball in a Prell? And nationally, we've very much care about Dodgers project. No, no. Maybe looked at that real eyes, man, then. Could should have been us. But I don't think that was the case. I don't think it was some kind of ever. Ebony's er Scrooge like a piphany that Dick Mom for Waked woke up one day. And decided that Jeff Bright it should be the general manager anymore. And I know no Jeff write Ege step down or whatever any releases statement and I'll go through some of that. But I mean, why would Jeff bright it's step down today. There is a man tweets circulating. Saying that some people close to Dick Monfort were saying that Jeff brightest who's going to be gone after yesterday's game? Don't know who was tweeting it out. I saw the tweets. And they were from me. Yes, turd, eh? Saying that after Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jeff Bright, it's was gone. And when you say Jeff bright, it's his gone after today's game. It feels to me like that snot, totally his decision. And in fact, the Rockies went out of their way in there statement today. Saying they mutually agreed. That jet brought Ege would step down. Who knows? Maybe it was. You can't quit on firing You. Who knows? But if the decision was ultimately Dick Monfort Probably had very little to do. With the Rockies. This year. Or even the trade of Nolan are nado. That was a lie while ago As much as we keep bringing it up. It's been a while while So I I I I don't believe that all of a son Dick Mom for real eyes that Jeff bright. It's ran his team into the ground. What I believe Is that that arrogance of Jeff Bride Ege was finally directed at Dick Mom for There's rumors, maybe not even rumors so much as gossip. That After that athletic piece came out. Monfort and bright Ege had some words and they weren't totally pleasant. Don't know It's just gossip. But the timing of this does not feel like a baseball related decision. This feels like a And are you mint that blew up into something much bigger? I don't think it was about The bull pan. We're not having no one or not. Oh, at third base. Given JEF Bright itches history. When in it makes sense that at some point The arrogance. That he had Would be felt by Dick Mom for would be directed in that. Way to the point that Dick Mom furt..

"Why, and I have to stretch my my mind beyond its limits to comprehend these two things. One is that they're going to lock up Trevor story to an extension. And, honestly, that's on Trevor Story. He wants to hitch his wagon to Jeff Bright. It's a star. Then then you know that's his problem. When he could be paid just the same amount of money literally anywhere else. So I have a hard time believing that they're on the cusp of signing Trevor story do an extension and that is the reason why they're not Talking about him and trades or the other question that I mean, The other possibility is that Iraqis air so gun shy after being annihilated in their trade. With the ST Louis Cardinals that they're afraid to have that happen again. But that would come with the caveat that you are that you are believing that Jeff Bright itch and Dick Monfort have any self awareness to understand. What is being said about them. And how their deal of Nolan are not always being perceived. And self awareness and the Colorado Rockies brain Trust. That's all. It's oxymoronic. Those two things don't go together. I legitimately can't figure it out. Really can't. I wish I had answers for you. I pride myself on being able to the Come on this show. Give you answers because you deserve answers. I don't have any answers anymore with the Rockies. Even when things were bad. Could at least give you some answers. And the easy answer is They're incompetent. And maybe that applies here. I don't know if it goes far enough, like They're incompetent. Yeah, I know. But No. One ARN Otto is now a ST Louis Cardinal and the Cardinals don't have to pay him a dime to play baseball for them. So incompetent feels like It's not going far enough, but honestly, that's all I can give you. Because I don't understand why they would not be entertaining the idea of trading Trevor story. You guys have some thoughts? At 5 to 29872. Steve says, Tell a lie long enough People will start believing It. Sorry I didn't read that text. Well, there's no way Iraqis will be good. They could end up 60 games behind first place. Do you truly believe there is no interest for Trevor is relatively young. Good hitter. That's poppycock. It is Steve It is..

"And then immediately wanted out. I feel like I know the situation in Colorado a little bit better than I know. The one down in Houston with the Sean wants in Don't think Nolan are not. Oh, signs at extension if he didn't have every intention on playing with the Rockies for the rest of his career. And the fact that just one bad year Even with everything that happened with Jeff, right? It's that one bad year would make Nolan are not a demand to be traded. I'm sorry. I just I don't buy it. And that is the biggest thing coming from today. Zoom call. I don't believe anything that Dick Monfort and Jeff bright, it's say. I think they put in This opt out. Because they knew it was always going to come to this that they were not going to be able to continually compete. Because they weren't willing to spend more money. And they wanted to get to the point where no one are not. It would be so fed up with the direction of the team that he would want to leave like they're perpetuating today. Or No. Use it as a convenient excuse to deal him. Well, he's got the opt out. We can't lose him for nothing. Well, guess what? Given what you were got in return. From ST Louis and what you gave up. Both in terms of our NATO and the money you gave the Cardinals I think I speak for everybody. When we say we would rather you just have let Nolan are not opt out. Oh, but we were doing him a favor. Was. We're family here. Uh um. The second most important thing that we found out today on the brightest and Montford zoom call. Is that, you know. Guys signing a 10 year extension for a quarter of a billion dollars and then wanting out just a couple of years later, you know, it's normal. Things just happened this way in life. Sometimes we're time sometimes relationships change. And this is not an easy necessarily an easy industry to be in people are competitive. Um Hand and human beings change over time. Our feelings? Um what's important to us on And you know it. It's Zanotto always a straight line, and it's not always simple, and it's not always easy, but I think my point is that at the base of all of this, this relationship was Uh, a strong belief that I've always had a Nolan ever since I first got to know. We know that you think he's a great player. We all think he's a great player. That's not the point. We're not disputing. Nobody is saying all Jeff, right? It's you must not think Nolan are not as any good. No, I think Jeff, brightest things that Nolan or not, is a good player. That's not the point. Relationships do change over time. Not this quickly. Not this quickly and not under normal circumstances on Lee under the Extraordinary circumstances. Of a team squandering a promising roster by not Supplementing said roster going from a divisional round berth to the cellar in your division in one year's time. To your star player. Shipping him out for Bag of magic beans. This doesn't just happen. This is not part of life. This is not part of the human condition or the human experiment. You caused this You caused it to come to this either is premeditated or through just your own inability to manage the people on your team. Came to this. It's not normal. It's not normal for relationship to sour this quickly. And I put this through. But this is probably the most important thing that Dick Monfort at least wants you to know. This is still a team that's capable of winning baseball games. I know maybe nobody on this call will believe this. But I truly in my heart believe That this is a very talented team that underperformed the last couple years. And, you know, I'm not even gonna count last year because it was It was a difficult year. So there you go, folks. 29 teens and out liar. 2020 doesn't even exist. Don't we all feel that way? So, Dick Monfort says. That this is a team that can still compete. Even without their best player with their best player. They couldn't compete. And now without their best player and getting back forget about whether the guys they got in return are promising prospects or not promising prospects. There's only one guy they got back in this deal that is Has a legitimate chance of being on the opening day roster. This coming season in his Austin number. All these other guys are years away. So how can Dick Monfort, sit up there. And claim that this is still a team you took. Even if it wasn't take away the fact that it's completely ridiculous that a team that has finished Near the bottom. I can't remember if they were last. Or maybe the Giants and Diamondbacks were in last near the bottom of the division two years ago and the bottom of the division this year. Leave out that part that they did that with Nolan are in Otto. And how patently absurd it is. To assert. That that is a good team. Now you're saying.

"The way that Jeff Bright Ege when about his relationship with Nolan are nado in the two years following The signing of the extension. Where no one are not. Oh, Was promised that this team would continue to try and win. At 2017 and 2018. We're not Out, likes This was going to be a team built. To win now and built to win in the future, and the Rockies then went out in the next two off seasons and did nothing. They added Matt Kemp. Not good Matt Camp. Like overweight. Batting to 20 Matt Camp. That's it. That's what they've done. They've done nothing else besides slash payroll. And not found anyone to replace the guys. They've gotten rid of. And then, when no one voiced his frustrations. Jeff Bright age would not comment on it would not answer his calls. Would not give the level of courtesy. Forget to a franchise player. Forget to unravel it, too. An employee. Think about your jobs. Hey, if you were as disgruntled as the Rockies claim that Nolan are not awas And how much they wanted out. Wouldn't The higher ups at your company. At least reach out. At least try to hear your concerns. Try to mend fences. By all accounts, Jeff Bright Ege. Didn't do any of.

"I have not thought of about fire and Jeff Monfort, referring to his support of Rockies general manager Jeff Bright Itch, he says. Once a Renato said he wanted out of his contract last year, they made the best deal possible. Act of the matter is we honored what Nolan wanted to do, and we made what we thought was the The best thing we could do at the time was now officially a member of the ST Louis Cardinals being introduced to the media there this morning, and he had this message for fans in Denver. I got a lot of love with Rocky fans, You know, they've always supported me throughout my career, and they got special place in my heart. My families are, you know, I think I would tell him is that I did my best and I give it my all and that's all I could really do.

"We're not gonna Attack each other. As Rockies fans like you're not a big enough Rockies fan or your affair weather? We're not gonna do that. Because we have a common enemy. We have to common enemies in Dick Monfort and Jeff Bright Ege. If you choose to go to a game in the future, that's fine. I don't see how I go to another Rockies game. I really don't. Unless it's for my job. And when it's for my job, I get him for free. I don't know how I am going to spend a single dollar. On Iraqis ticket and it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart because I grew up in those left field stands. Spending my summers getting squirted by, uh Sergeant Earth Man's squirt gun. Yell that Dante Bichette. Every game to throw me a baseball. I grew up in that stadium. I love that team. But this is this is the final straw. Can't do it. It's not losing. I have stuck by the Rockies through some very lean years. It is not about losing. Is trading of Nolan or Renato is a betrayal of the trust that you enter into with your fan base. They entered an agreement with Nolan are in auto two years ago, pledging their undying loyalty for the next 10 years and slipped in. And opt out after two years. They slipped in that back door and they were always going to use it. Either the losing would get toe are not owe to the point that he would want to leave. Or the losing would get to the point where Jeff Bright, it's would feel he could sit in front of media and fans alike and justified trading. Nolan are not all for the greater good of the franchise. We see right through him. Don't wait. He's betraying he betray Nolan are not as trust By promising him that they would do everything they could to consistently win. And immediately After knowing are not. Oh, put pen to paper went back. On their word. By signing Nolan are nado. They entered into a trust with you, the fan saying your favorite player. Greatest player that you have ever seen put on this uniform is not going anywhere. And they lied to you because this was always the plan. It's just they got fleeced. Even more than we could have expected they would have But they were always going to do this. 5 to 29872. All right manifesto over Your thoughts. Are most welcome on this Monday. Um When we come back, the Nolan are not a deal is not the biggest deal that happened in sports. Matthew Stafford is now a member of the L. A Rams. Why the fact that the Broncos weren't really in on Matthew Stafford? Has very little to do with how much the Rams outbid them and everything to do with how far away George Payton really thinks the Broncos are. That's after we take a look at traffic..

"And Desmond. Let him know where he was kind of sitting that maybe he was on the fence about coming back. And actually told Jeff Bright, It's that he wasn't going, Tio. And Jeff Bright. It's Told us that he didn't feel like it was his place. When he when we asked him on Monday about you know is everybody going to be opting in and playing? He didn't feel it was his place to tell us that Ian Desmond was opting out because he knew how much this meant to Ian Desmond to be able to communicate what he did the other day. And form or on Ian Desmond. Here's Jeff Bright. It's clip number one police coyote or fully supportive of in and of his family, and of the decision that they've made and It. It's the right decision for for them and for him, and it's fairly deep is and I think it is and what he put out there was was quite heartfelt. And because he in part because he was asked about Ian Desmond about 10 different ways. He kept reiterating how much he respects Ian Desmond how much he supports his decision. And kind of related to him on a husband to her husband, father to father level. And of course, that's mohr him opting out because of Cove it but Jeff Bride, it's was also very supportive of Ian Desmond in the other things, he said in that instagram post the other night. As for the guy that will replace in Desmond on the roster, although Matt Camp was already being talked to by the Rockies. The Rockies apparently wanted Matt camp in the last winter meetings. Kemp decided he'd rather go to Miami, which insert joke here that he'd rather play for the Marlins in the Rockies. What he decided. Go play in Miami. Things didn't work out there. And Right. It's said that they had been talking with Matt Camp, and they probably would have had him on the roster. With or without in Desmond. Here's bright itch on what Matt Camp could be for this team. Clip number four, please. Well, I think the D H is an obvious benefit in terms of of His potential place on a R R major league roster. There's no doubt about it, no doubt about it and I know that I was going to be the case, whether in opted interrupted out. Um and so Again. It's a It's a right handed power. Power bats got a sense of the strikes only. We've seen it for whom you have you seen it for? How many years And on and is very motivated to Um You know, to get back on the field and to continue his career and play and play well, and so you know whether that's I don't know it's too early to tell whether you know that'll be In the outfield, or it would be only a DHD IEDs. We have to let some weeks pass before we can make any sort of city. And bright. It's also I think tempered expectations a little bit. By saying, You know, this is a minor league deal that we're signing that came too. This is And I'm not quoting him here. But this is basically what he was saying is minor league deals or prove it deals. You don't sign a guy to a minor league deal that you think is going to be in the line up every single day, contributing in the middle of a line up. This is a guy that Ended up getting ahead even play for the Marlins. He goes to spring training with him ends up getting cut. He played 20 games last year for Cincinnati. So this is a guy that's been on a little bit of it a downturn. I will say, though. That you D'oh have some decent numbers. Two years prior to that. Especially when he went back to L. A. Two years ago. Hit 2 90 21 home runs 85 R B I And again, That's what That's what Matt Kim can do for you. He can hit home runs, He hits left handed pitching very well. The question is was last year. In the in kind of a proposed that you have Matt Camp and the Colorado Rockies as a whole, trying to answer the same question. Was 2019. An outlier Not that 2017 and 2018 for Matt Camp or banner years. But you had decent power numbers. Pretty good batting average. In 2017 and 2018 Fermat camp and then on Ly 20 games last year, struggled mightily in those limited at bats. You like the Rockies playoffs playoffs than nothing this past year. Is it to two years prior or Will they get back to that will smack him Get back to that or was last year Maurin Dick a tive of the direction that those two guys are doing those both the Rockies and Matt Kemp. What direction they're going. And Now it's kind of started to evolve into a philosophical debate. To me, Look. You got 60 guys on this roster. That you're taking into the season. Some of those guys will be on the taxi squad, of course, but you have 60 guys at your disposal. That you can basically Bring up send down That will To give Matt Kemp a roster spot. There's no harm in it. For me. Absolutely none. And seeing some people say Oh, what did they be better off, giving one of their younger players a chance, like look at the Rockies farm system. Iraqis farm system over the last few years has been completely decimated, because anyone that's even remotely major league ready is has been called up to Denver. Iraqis don't have the farm system that they used to have. So even the most well versed Rocky's guys What fans or media people If I told you named 60 guys in the rocky system If I asked myself to do that, I could probably gets a 40.

He wrote a lengthy, heartfelt and emotional post on Instagram.

Black said that his team is dealing with the same thing that every team in the league is and knows it will be a time crunch to get ready to play by late July. You know we won't have the benefit of exhibition games like 30 games. You're playing in March to get ready, so they'll be a little different for everybody. But again, everybody's in the same boat. You know, we will in a very practical way, get our guys ready to play and be ready for our first game, and I gotta give the credit of there's a lot of credit for staying on top of their own individuals. Physical well being to be ready so We're confident bright. It's also mentioned that the Rockies will hold their spring training at both Coors Field and Metro States baseball complex downtown to allow a little more space. Eventually, there'll be players in Albuquerque is well using that facilities of satellite field.

‘No comment. Next question.’ Jeff Bridich’s feud with Nolan Arenado is now a Rockies cold war

"But one talk to you a little bit about your pride each and what happened today down Salt River that pitchers and catchers reporting all very exciting Rockies is there another first spring training game on the twenty second organ of course be carrying the games it was we are the flagship and it is exciting hope springs eternal every single for a every single team even teams in the midst of a time of turmoil like the Houston Astros there everybody's excited and and in the Rockies have so it's a mother challenges but right now the overwhelming stories about known are not like that that is that is the story and so if you ask anybody about the Rockies it's what's going on with the lawn what are the old patch this thing up and so far we've really only heard Nolan side we know that there are there do there been some warmer porch back and forth there's been some reported trade interests of the Rockies have listened to trades but Jeff price really hasn't spoken publicly about this I'm not really so he had an opportunity today in and as I understand it it was kind of cleared by PR like PR was going to what we had kind of line this supplications gonna say something about it he told the assembled media and then it just price was kind of put in front of him to say something and and this is kind of how it went down use it to you would speak to us briefly about the Nolan situation so we thought we to start off with that of the top so from your perspective what would you just like to say about what's been out there publicly about nothing revision comment made any comment to this point so in the past thanks six question okay so as you heard there said Warren who of course works PR for the Rockies he he kind of put it right out there saying Hey guys he's gonna have something to say about this and then his comment was no comments and I have nothing to add to this and next question it's always a Patrick Saunders ended up being the guy and he's he does a phenomenal job with post and and and and you know he he was just the kind of guy that had to ask the question somebody's got as good hi I have a few thoughts in this band but first I'd like to kind of get your your perspective on what what went down there and Jeff prices decision not to say anything I I I I I feel like the Rockies need to say something beyond what's been said because right now in the public domain the only story that exists is now it is our not as version and with any story there's three sides to it his hers in the truce it's so I'd I'd like the Rockies to have some kind of public comment on it and I ages feels like passing on commenting right now with the no comment I really feel like that's the wrong way to tackle this one I that's not how I would do it I understand it I I I may have to catch my language I may have to in a press conference environments that insider specifics I won't get into but there has been some animosity here obviously Nolan felt disrespected me went out of his way to say that and we we've got a bridge to cross but you should put something out there that says something other than no comment you don't even have to give any real details you say it the way I just said it was just a present anything new you'll have to you'll have to give specific short with new information out there you can rehash what's already out there but and and and couch it in that regard and people take that quote it be okay with this it's P. R. speak writes exactly is what people do yeah we we expected that like we we don't we don't have it we're we're the home of the Rockies in the home of the of the Broncos here so when I say this I want you to understand that I'm saying that you know a week we get all the jokes about the state sponsored radio a kind of stuff from competitors around town that can't afford to carry the broadcast rights but what we are the flagship of both and I'm criticizing one the Broncos face he sings had all they do and that's one of things you do have to give consideration like you heard at the very beginning say Hey Warren said that you're going to say something if Patrick Smyth says we're gonna say something about this they do it and and they got a player out there that's right talk about a player with a manual in Cortland yeah the physical altercation camp and then they were out there come by on it up the next day with jokes they were obviously still matter Locke believes you knew what was coming the Broncos do a great job and I don't see here Kerry orange blue cool aid or whatever it is that they say but you get the point the juxtaposition between the way these two organizations handle negative things is glaring and this was an opportunity and I think the way you pointed out is is absolutely fair there's an opportunity here for Jeff bright H. as bad as well as a bit of a conduit to the fans like it in the end he has to do remember he is a public face sorry for the Rockies leave a voice he's out there to talk to the media and to tell them everything's gonna be okay like tell the fans Hey listen I know there's a lot of things out there we're focused on the season no one are not I was going to be here we're ready we're ready to play baseball that dad right we're excited about a softball and what will work out that's that that would have been a completely appropriate when you do it like that it's also Jeff price thought if I say no comment then this will die like it'll be the end of infected actually makes it much more as a lien on the fire especially his body language if you watch the video it's a combination I I tend to not like do a lot of body language thing at the blood that becomes kind of over blown but in this case like the combination of no comment like he looked sour about even being asked about it when the media was just doing their job personal to have to ask well it's eight ever leaders of anything Ryan nine days ever there's that side of it too but but but more than anything with with with pride H. he is he kind of forgot something here in my opinion he forgot what he what the fans are desperately wanting to hear about their star player that he is the face of the organization of the conduit for the organization and that shouldn't ever really like that should never go away from the forefront of your mind we're out there speaking when you're speaking for you you're speaking for the organization you're speaking to the media who are going to go talk to the fans and the fans just wanted to know he's everything a be okay because no one are those were my favorite players of all time and I want to watch in this year and I want to know that we're trying to contended do something and instead I get no comment and for me like like what did you think was going to be solved by doing that saying no comment is different than not having a comment at the not saying anything at all yeah it was it was a little bit confusing all right really is a little confused by that played today because it's it's certainly not going away was going to go away anyways but now it's a bit was is a bigger story yeah it's the price seems absurd misconceptions about the media yeah I was almost almost in a battle with the media he is the conduit information between the organization of fans you can't have eighty five thousand fans come flood a press conference a locker so you have some assembled media commits the pool you know they come in and they do it they get those quotes information package about put him in a in an article or sound bite and they presented to the fans at large that's the media's job just to relay the information just to take the facts from here because you can only fit twenty people in this room and then turn around disseminated to the fans ask the questions instead of the fans it's where your representative democracy you know what we are reps here and so the the idea that the media is the enemy for bright is it's just it's a wall you know it is hardly the first GM to do it like that very point but he's but he's not helping himself and you think of the modern age people be savvy enough to understand Hey you guys are just taking the stuff the fans what I need to do is just repackaged all the information is already here and a friend will sell by two gets buried in the third paragraph of the calm they're going to write instead of saying no comment getting a brand new title at the top of the column the twenties guys gonna write and that's exactly the right has nothing to say which says everything in it of it you know it and I I got the headlines right themselves and adds more fuel to the fire exactly that died there's a disconnect between our not all the star player this team that they just gave an extension to and the front office which again now adds more conversation and call links to the winds are gonna be traded when when the Rockies gonna what we are and then on top of that now for said this earlier today I want to give him some credit he said it also I'll other thing I want to say he said this but it's something to the effect of that that that is also maybe even weaken your position a little bit as it relates to trade value because now it shows very publicly that there is a disconnect yeah there's a rift you know we don't know all that there was a rift in we knew because we heard it we we saw what era said but we did have a knowledge within the organization so you could have skewed the grout the chasm there the open space was misunderstanding that's not

Tigers are walking end this year with the best recruiting class in the country. and there's gonna be some high expectations but I think those expectations are tempered by the fact that also. we got a lot of freshmen come again they're gonna be they're gonna make some mistakes they're gonna learn from those mistakes the excitement is going to be. the progression of the season how are we looking heading into January into February into March just how good can we be with this first year with James wise and which may be his only year slot of question marks which leads to a lot of excitement because a question marks are good question marks it's not wall what if this team falls apart there's a young team question is what if it all comes together well I've got a question like that that sent chills up your sponsor that he shivers a little bit with that exciting that was exciting thank you that was good to be tied up right try to try to break it up a little bit yeah now is this a little bit different or is it my memory I thought man this madness was free on the inside in previous years as MIT and I got that right because of the demand I believe last year in may be a couple of previous years prior they were charging just a small amount to get in because of overflow okay had to have a ticket for crowd control for financing and all that I take it then I started at five and I think they went up to like twenty dollars like down down okay this okay I don't think attendance is gonna be a problem but that's a good question but I believe there's there's there's there's been a nominal fee recently okay and I think that may be to defray yeah I don't know if it's to defray any of the consummate think that's necessarily that but may be for. keeping the numbers in line and not having a rush at the gate okay for safety reasons but this is just as much of a showcase for this year same as it is to show out for next year's recruiting class for perspective. students at student athletes to come here it's great PR there's no doubt about it that's tomorrow night by the way coming up we're talking Kent Conrad we gotta get we I guess some city council business to get to we got we got some talking to do with our pal can't Conrad yeah that's coming up next on that this morning news it is seven forty two take a look at the roads and heather. the morning right now even overturned vehicle.

"The the fall out the criticism of Jeff bright it's continues and what he brought a lot of this on himself in a book that was supposed to be a a book version of a puff piece by drew good man I loved your good man we had him on the show you did a great job in the book him and Benjamin Hochman who wrote it together but you what you weren't gonna dig through that trying to find some dirt on the Rockies right there was a going to be a lot of negativity Andrew Goodman's book but yet here comes the quote from Jeff pride H. you want to criticize a brain surgeon and that is when the tide started to turn when that quote came out basically you don't criticize a brain surgeon so don't criticize me for something that you can't do when that happened the tide turned for Jeff pride age and now this season turned as well shortly thereafter conveniently and then you have yesterday were jeopardy it's makes no moves doesn't sell doesn't buy stands Pat and then smugly tells reporters everything is fine I know what I'm doing don't worry about it and you have the Ken Rosenthal peace in the athletic the other day where a rival GM call arrival executive calls out the rocky specifically for a team that values there guys more than their valued around the league and now today I think this is on on reddit but Nick broke of the athletic who for my money is probably the best covering the Rockies right now answered somebody's question any question was based on the trade deadline each year why Jeff pride is never does anything we talk about someone know that that was a good pick up but that was you gave away a relatively low level prospect for an aging reliever not exactly a blockbuster it did kind of work out but that was all you did and the reader is saying to Nick croak like I we like the mover someone last year so you don't want to be you know hi in hindsight guy all the time but you look in jeopardy doesn't do anything at any trade deadline nothing is certainly nothing of real significance and may grow says the Rockies over value their own players and asked too much in return and are generally difficult to deal with on an interpersonal level and I've heard they take too long to make up their minds and then he goes on to say several Rockies players were as disappointed as you were by what the deadline brought in twenty eighteen within the club house they thought they had the Dodgers on the ropes they thought they could win the division they wanted the front office to go for it to show more faith in their potential they felt abandoned so when we talk about Jeff bright H. in some people might say well that's just fans because I've seen the Rockies friendly media that resides on that you know giant blowtorch that maybe some of you will listen to the Broncos game tonight on that say well you don't know you don't know what's going on behind the scenes and you're just being a fan you're just you just want the Rockies to do some just to do something in here Nick Roque is saying it's not just the fans it's not just the media the players the players look at Jeff right age and they don't understand why Jeff bright H. doesn't make more moves in season and I'm sure to a man you would ask the players and they would and they kind of I understand on a certain level why no moves were made this year because I think the players are owning a lot of what's going on this year in saying that it's on them but even going back to last year you see a clubhouse that wanted a reinforcement me think about if you're in the end you'll you'll see the Astros soon because they're playing the Rockies and actually grant he will make his debut as an astro against the Rockies the Astros you could argue didn't need to do anything and they would be just as legitimate of contenders in the A. L. as a or without gravy but they add green tea it makes them that much tougher and it also shows the players were going for it go get it boys that that's we're raising the standard it's not just a division title it's not just a playoff appearance we want to win a World Series not only is that empowering for players to feel that confidence but it also puts a healthy amount of pressure on these players and if you have a front office through their lack of moves that sends the message of this is good enough then that then that's not that that that's not pushing them and that's what I've said and that's why I've said through these last couple weeks leading up to the trade deadline it's not just two cosmetically improved this Rockies team is to send a message to the players is to energize them is to bring in new blood it's to get rid of guys that are hurting the team and not a doing next to nothing or nothing just shows that the status quo is okay we made the playoffs two straight seasons we can take it down here that's what Jeff prided she's saying he's gonna spend it as well I believe in our core that's great but you have to supplement that core I believe in the core of Trevor story no one or not Charlie black men if you wanna thrown in there John gray I believe in those guys to Astros arguably have a better court you know you take out or not you put anybody on the Astros over anybody on the Rockies right in terms of cores and Jeff woo now is saying yeah they were good but I want to be better and I believe that we can win it will give up top level prospects will take on a bunch of money because we believe in you N. N. that's what Jeff bright it's doesn't get is that not doing anything is in a message that I believe in you it's actually quite the opposite it's what is happening is fine whatever we're good we'll go into next year and we'll try it again it's not what good teams do that's not that's not what teams do that wanna win consistently or win championships that's not how they operate by doing nothing nothing's gonna change if you don't add a piece or subtract appease you're not sending a message a strong message to anybody and you're not making your team better and then you have the chem Rosenthal piece I mentioned earlier that saying that the Rockies don't know how good they had it last year there over raiding their own guys and maybe the players feel that maybe the players say look we were super lucky to have for starters in our rotation that were all on point last year we can expect that every year not from young guys ages further showing how Jeff bright age is just in a water and intellectuals or are like this they're just detached there's a detachment there where they don't get the the motivation they don't get that stuff that they can't quantify on a spreadsheet and that's what's missing some but there's guys like the I've seen who are very much about analytics very much the I've seen is about analytics but he also understands the other part the human element and why sabermetrics itself isn't the be all end all because there is a human element both things have to go together and it seems like bright H. is only about the science only about the numbers the data and doesn't care about how perception motivation or anything like that two eight six zero zero four six take your thoughts on that are coming up next if you are a fan of cycling there are two events coming to Colorado springs next week that you should keep your eye out on it joining us next to talk about is a is Opry McCoy from the car spring sports court that's next year on exports thirteen hundred this is the sound of back wall mom eighty five asking DQ.

"Jeff bright where we got about sixty seconds right here in the half time. It's thirty eight thirteen the Tigers trailing USF big. And you know, a lot of times you say, oh, I'd love to be a fly on the wall. And. The locker room bearing the us. Glad I'm not a fly on the wall. Because I would imagine penny in the staff aren't very pleased with what they want to be anywhere near that locker room right now for two can't imagine. It's very pretty and they're like we said in the second half, and at the heart not the dog, the guys or anything you've got to find something to do positive you're trailing as you would imagine every single statistical category in this your best shooter right now as two of seven and Cuban Davenport. He's only guy multiple Phil goals. You gotta find something. I know it's hard to say. And it's cliche. Something good to come out of the second half just to get back home next week.
