Other owners may not like the fact that they're pocketing that cash, but the trade off is that the Rockies are basically content to be a farm club for the rest of MLB. They'll draft players, develop them and when the time comes to pay them, they'll send them off to the teams who are willing to spend money....the same ones who're shoving revenue sharing dollars into the Monforts pockets.

When the Rockies truly become that, a farm club for the rest of the league, that's when I give up on them for good. I can stick by bad teams, but I refuse to stick by an organization that has no interest in winning.
That's where I'm at when it comes to the Rockies. I'm tired of this nickel and dime crap. I'm willing to stick with the youth movement, but when these kids get good, you have to pay them.
