What Should The Rockies Be Thankful For?

1 of 6

The Colorado Rockies have been consistently disappointing, but there are still people and events that they should be thankful for on this holiday.

It’s Thanksgiving. In so many aspects of life, this holiday gives us an opportunity to step back, decompress, and express gratitude for the good things before returning to the business of addressing the stressful or bad things.

It’s been a while now since the Colorado Rockies mattered. 2009 was the last time that the Rockies made the playoffs and 2010 was last time the Rockies were even close to relevance. It has been a long and depressing stretch for the Rockies, with the continued empty promises of a team built around Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez disappointing us, year after year after year.

We all know that by now. We know what has gone wrong, so let’s take a moment to focus on the positives. Let’s focus on the good things for the Rockies, and the handful of reasons to be thankful on this Thanksgiving holiday.

The Rockies might not be the most exciting team in the league, and maybe the next few years promise nothing but uncertainty, there are still those good things to appreciate.
