There is nothing to be ashamed of Rockies' fans. You proved that being the underdog in any situation doesn't mean you can't win.
You had a great run and we shall see you next year.

I usually post on my home-state thread but wanted to stop by to congratulate the Rockies and their fans on a great season. Wow! You are definitely "on the radar" now and with a very young and now experienced team, as well. It's always fun to watch the upstart underdog do well.
I'm sure we'll be seeing you next year! Great job.

kidding or not, likely part of it. and maybe some of the inexperience in the bright lights. you have to admit, though, the rockies have a ton of talent - you don't do what they did this season without talent, though experience can count for a lot on the big stage when playing against talent AND experience (with momentum after winning 3 straight rather than that 8 day layoff). the loss in this series is a gain overall for the team and their fan base. the sox are a big team for these things, lately, and played well. congrats!

Dude, what are you saying... i'm just getting back home from the all-night celebration in LoDo. The Rockies crushed the Sox in 4 just like you said. Pawleys must have you all screwed up in the head -- maybe thinking Hawpe struck out 8 times, instead of hitting those 8 home runs, Fuentes giving up big home runs right after the Rockies had gotten back into games, etc. --delusional illusions all. Get on down to the stadium -- the party is still goin' on!!!!!!!

What??? Oh sorry about that. Anyway, congratulations to the Sox and RSN. And to the city of Boston -- what a time. Sox win the world series, Patriots blowing through everyone, BC -- #2 right now ithink, and the Celtics are going to have a real shot at the NBA title. Congrats to Boston!!!

See everyone opening day at Coors Field next year.

In 2007

Were the Rockies a World Series caliber team with an average first 6/7ths of the season,

Or

Were they a .500 team who got hot at the end and (with the help of an eight day layoff) reverted to their .500 playing level for the World Series?

Valiant efffort Rockies - you have definitely made others aware of the young talent that will be around for some time in the national league.

they did most of what they could do wrong in the world series and looked very much like neophytes out there, i'll admit. but a "hot streak" might be 10 games. they were interestingly very strong each time they faced another very strong team (including the red sox and the yanks - outside of the NL) throughout the season, and were practically unbeatable for 2 full months leading up to the world series. tough to call that a fluke or a simple "hot streak". it looked a lot like deer in the headlights several times during (throughout?) the world series with whiffs, bad decisions, a couple unbelievable fielding errors that looked like nothing but emotion irregulation, shakey pitching (from an otherwise pretty strong bullpen, right?), unfortunately. but, the sox also played well, have a seasoned and high rolling team, and so with that comes a bit of what we just saw? that's what it would seem to a renewed fan like me! at least the rocks now have some of those renewed fans, a young team that just got a taste of what it can be like to be excellent...and then to be under the spotlight in the big game. let's see what that does for next season. it was fun - thanks rocks!
