Colorado Rockies: 5 of our favorite roast moments on social media
By Kevin Henry
Let’s face it, the social media presence around the Colorado Rockies is strong. Julian Valentin and his Rockies cohorts have built up a Twitter account (@Rockies) that is often imitated but never duplicated around Major League Baseball.

Whether it’s an epic virtual snowball fight, proclaiming love for Rockies players through little-used words on Dictionary Day (who knew?) or helping pull together baseball memorabilia for a young fan who lost his collection in the California wildfires, the Rockies social media account is always active and always out there, engaging and enlightening fans of the franchise.
However, don’t be fooled. If you shoot some darts at the Rockies, don’t be surprised if the social media account shoots some right back at you. Much like Rockies fans, Colorado’s social media account can get a little salty when provoked. Go ahead, make one more Coors Field reference. We dare you.
A roast by the Rockies has almost become a form of pride. There are people who want the Rockies to roast them on social media. There are others who simply sit back, popcorn in hand, to see who the Rockies might put on public notice today.
With this in mind, we decided we would put together five of our favorite roasts from the Rockies social media account. There were tons to choose from, but these five made us laugh and reminded us that, yes, baseball is supposed to be fun.
Enjoy this trip down memory lane with us…
