Monfort Indicates He Will Not Change Rockies' Front Office, Wants To Increase Payroll
Published October 10, 2013
SEATING RENOVATION AT COORS FIELD: In Denver, Patrick Saunders notes the Rockies yesterday announced the "next major construction project at Coors Field -- an extensive redesign and renovation to the upper right-field seating area and concourse." Monfort said that much of the money for the project "came from a surplus of capital construction funds and also from money the Rockies and the Denver Metropolitan Stadium District received from Aramark and RTD." Monfort insisted that the extra money the club will be putting into the project "won't hurt next year's team payroll." He said, "At best, it cost us a utility player for one year" (DENVER POST, 10/10).
