Monfort Says He May Look To Change Rockies' Front Office If Struggles Continue
Published July 9, 2014
IN OVER HIS HEAD? In Denver, Mark Kiszla writes Monfort is "in way over his head, drowning slowly in all the frustration of a season gone horribly wrong." Monfort yesterday said, "Awful. Just awful. It's the worst I've ever been in my life." He added, "I don't sleep at night. ... I live in fear all the time. ... Fear of losing." Kiszla writes Dick and Charlie Monfort "are good men," but they "don't know how to win." They "don't have the baseball expertise." Kiszla: "I don't believe the Monforts are cheap. I believe they are in over their heads." Kiszla's advice to Monfort is to "get some help" (DENVER POST, 7/9).
