At some point, you realized this was a lost year.
Maybe it happened on July 7, when the Rockies dropped below .500 entering the all-star break. Maybe it was after that, when the team finished July with a 6-19 record. Or maybe it took you until last week, when you learned that “Tim Melville” wasn’t some random seasonal employee at a barbecue joint—or, rather, you learned that “Tim Melville” wasn’t only some random seasonal employee at a barbecue joint.
The Rockies haven’t had a lost year in a while, but in a way, it’s kind of nice.
