Rockies Mailbag: Should players complain about the fans?

The latest issue of Denver Post sports writer Patrick Sanders with his Rocky Mountain pouch.

Ask Rocky Mountain or MLB related questions for the Rocky Mountain Mailbag.

Good day, Patrick. Have a great weekend at Dodger Stadium! I have a baseball problem, not specifically about the Rocky Mountains. What is the responsibility to the fans among players, management and bosses? The Mets players caused an uproar by showing fans “thumbs down” rather than a worse gesture of disapproval. Does this cross professional boundaries? I am curious that you want to show Mensa’s gestures in Twittersphere. Thank you.

Robert, when I saw it and read about it, my intuitive reaction was that Javier Baez, Francisco Lindo and Kevin Pilar were too much. I think this is the classless and childish behavior of high-paid female star athletes.

But then I thought about it again. Now it doesn’t bother me that much.

In fact, I think it’s fun because it’s New York, because it’s the Mets, because it’s fans of the Mets, because it’s the world of the New York Daily News and the New York Post. This is definitely a world different from Denver and Coors Stadium.

Fans on the East Coast can be very cruel. Booing is their right, but if the players want to fight back a bit, I can accept it.

However, I am confused about Baez. He was in the Mets for a month? It’s not exactly the kind of baggage he wants to take him to free agency. He has played very badly.

As long as the player does not cross the line with signs of violence, foul language or vulgarity, I can accept it. I would rather let the players honestly say that they care about what the fans think, rather than ignore them and live in their baseball bubble.

If the Rockies are in full swing on the road and win 20 in the next 21 games, such as the 2007 style, how would you evaluate the Rockies’ competitive opportunities this year?

Ryan, I used to be an optimist, just like you. Those days!

As I write this article, the Rocky Mountains lead 60-71 in the game in Texas on Tuesday night. They still have 10 games to compete for the second wild card spot in the National League, and four teams are ahead of them. So I would say that their chances are zero.
