Colorado Rockies: Jon Gray is not the only one at fault
But who is the person who believed that the Rockies starting pitching staff would be a playoff worthy rotation and expected Jon Gray to anchor that rotation? Jeff Bridich.
Obviously, it would be nice to believe that Jon Gray could develop into an ace but he has shown with his results that he can’t. He doesn’t look he is confident enough to be an ace either. Really, you could see it when he started for the Rockies in the Wild Card game last year.
Also, if you just look at this year’s group of players, or roster composition of the current Rockies, there are many questionable moves by Bridich.
Who resigned Carlos Gonzalez after a bad season in 2017, who has improved lately but still playing well below league average?

Let’s look back even further, though. In fact, let’s look back to Bridich’s entire tenure as general manager.
