Colorado Rockies: A lack of offense … and a lack of taco’s
This is absolute torture. The lack of offensive production by the Colorado Rockies has finally made me reach my breaking point.
In a little over a year writing for Rox Pile, I have written 100-plus articles, including a handful on the topic of taco’s and the significance it pertains to the Colorado Rockies. For those who are unaware, when the Rockies score seven or more runs in a game, the following day, participating Taco Bells offer a discounted special on taco’s (taco’s is the correct spelling, just trust me).
The truth is I am sick and tired of having to research (it took way too long this time) and write about this particular subject but the Rockies continue to find some new idiotic reason that forces me to do so. It is the fact that the offense has been so bad that they have set a new dubious taco’s record.

The Rockies have now played 11 games to begin the season in which they have failed score at least seven runs. This passes their longest drought in franchise history. The previous record was set exactly 11 years ago on April 9, 2008 when it took the Rockies nine games to finally break the seven-run threshold. To make it even more of a coincidence, they beat the Braves (their current opponent), 12-6.
To add a little more perspective, under manager Bud Black the last two seasons, the Rockies have scored seven or more runs in the first and second games of the season, respectively.
So enough is enough. The Rockies have been completely awful to start the season and to add insult to injury, they have not delivered the fans their beloved taco’s. It is time to get this season back on track by giving the fans what they want. So let’s say it all together … WE WANT TACO’S!!!!
