Colorado Rockies’ owner Dick Monfort took to Twitter yesterday to answer fan questions for what should have been an innocuous conversation. Much to our delight—and to the delight of anyone who someday wants a consistently competitive baseball team in Denver—lots of folks aren’t buying what the club has been selling. As one tweeter later said: “Who was the PR guru that thought #AsktheOwner was a good idea?”

We know you guys love doing the same thing over and over again RT @Rockies Let me know if you want to do this again. Let’s have a great 2014— Nate Cheney (@NCheney21) February 11, 2014
But perhaps the best (saddest?) tweet came from Monfort himself:
