Woe to the Colorado Rockies

May 2009
The Colorado Rockies have gone 3-3 since we started the official 5280.com Fire Clint Hurdle Countdown on May 20, and yesterday's 16-6 defeat at the hands of division-rival Los Angeles Dodgers only cemented the reality that something's got to give. When The Denver Post manages to use the words "embarrass" and "fiasco" between the headline and second paragraph of its game story, something has to change. The Rockies gave up 19 hits in the loss, which puts them at 18-26, in the lead for the National League West's worst record and 13 games back of the Dodgers (viaMLB.com ). Just six days into the countdown, we hope we're wrong and that Rockies manager Clint Hurdle is somehow able to turn this around.
