On Tuesday, Rockies General Manager Jeff Bridich spoke to the media and was asked for a comment on the continuing saga between the team and 3rd baseman Nolan Arenado. Bridich was quick to change the subject.

Fans and members of the media jumped on Twitter to offer their opinion of Bridich’s handling of the question. And as expected, the comments were not good.

When the news broke late Tuesday night that Mel Tucker was leaving CU for Michigan State, some lumped the two stories together. Troy Renck, who spent over 10 years covering the Rockies for the Denver Post and now is a host and writer for Channel 7, shared his frustration with both situations.

Les Shapiro, co-host of Afternoon Drive with Goodman and Shapiro on Mile High Sports Radio, added more fuel to the fire on Tuesday when he said the trade talks surrounding Arenado are still very much alive.


In truth, this post could go on and on. A simple search on Twitter results in hundreds of posts of fans frustrated with Bridich, Rockies owner Dick Monfort and the overall direction of the team. (Feel free to kick back with your morning coffee and see the hate with your own eyes.)

As Spring Training approaches, can the team improve its position in the eyes of many of its fans? The next several weeks will go a long way toward answering that question.
