Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy was among five Dodgers players to be at the All-Star Game at Coors Field on Tuesday. After being pulled from the game, Muncy massively trolled the Colorado Rockies and their fans.
Muncy, who was an All-Star for the second time, and during his tenure with the Dodgers, Muncy has been to two World Series, winning the World Series last year in 2020.
However, the Colorado Rockies have not been as fortunate as they have been to one World Series in their franchise history, and in that World Series, they were swept by the Boston Red Sox in 2007. The Rockies also have only won one (1) playoff game since they made it to the playoffs in 2009.

Max Muncy trolled the Colorado Rockies and their fans when he was asked about St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado
When speaking with the media during the All-Star Game on Tuesday, Muncy was asked about St. Louis Cardinals third baseman and former Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado.
Muncy said that he was glad that he is out of the NL West so the Dodgers don’t have to face Arenado as much (the Los Angeles Dodgers face the Colorado Rockies roughly 19 times per season and they face the St. Louis Cardinals roughly seven times in the regular season).
However, Muncy trolled the Rockies and their fans with his next comment.
Muncy said it was nice to see the fans recognize Arenado’s talent by voting him as the starting third baseman for the National League but he said that “it kind of makes you sit back and almost wish he could have won a little more here.”

In essence, Muncy said what the rest of the baseball world has been thinking for years now: “You had the best starting rotation in franchise history and you had great talent with Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, Charlie Blackmon, and some others for four years … and you won one playoff game. One.”
It’s often the truth that is harshest to hear and that’s the truth. And, unfortunately for Rockies fans, that single playoff win (the 2018 Wild Card Game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field) will have to last for a long time because the Rockies likely won’t be in contention for years to come.
