Just a day earlier, after the Colorado Rockiesdropped their seventh straight game in a loss to the Chicago Cubs, Troy Tulowitzki ripped into the team’s management, demanding them to change the culture and get better players into Denver.
Management needs to listen to Tulowitzki.
The Rockies continued their pitiful performance on Thursday in a 6-2 loss to the Cubs that handed the team it’s eight straight loss. Tulowitzki told the Denver Post on Wednesday:
“I think that’s why I came out numerous times and said I want to win.”
All he wants to do is win, but it is going to be hard to get many wins out of this group. You’re not going to win a lot of games when your starting pitching rotation is horrible. You are not going to win a lot of games when you can’t score runs.
Let’s not kid ourselves here. The Rockies are currently constructed horribly. The team can’t pitch and can’t score runs. It’s a miracle that nobody paying good money to watch this team at Coors Field has asked for a refund.
The fans deserve better than what they are receiving from this team, and Tulowitzki deserves to have a better team surrounding him that can have at least enough talent to make the playoffs.
Tulowitzki stopped short of asking for a trade, saying that he wants to remain in Colorado. But if this team continues its stinking ways, then don’t be surprised if that answer changes.
