It has been a cold and harsh winter for Colorado Rockies fans and MLB fans, in general. We are more than five weeks into the MLB lockout and it doesn’t look like it will be ending any time soon.
Colorado Rockies fans don’t have a ton to be hopeful for this offseason either. The team wasn’t very good in 2019, 2020, or 2021. They lost starting pitcher Jon Gray to free agency due to repeated missteps by the front office (led by new GM Bill Schmidt, who is new at his job but far from being new to the Rockies). Fans are bracing for the loss of Trevor Story when the lockout ends and he, likely, signs elsewhere.
Rockies fans haven’t seen the team do anything to add to their MLB team from outside of the organization via free agency or trade after doing little in each of the last three offseasons and, with the lockout, they may have to wait months for it to make any moves, if they do at all.
But Colorado Rockies top prospect Benny Montgomery may warm your heart with one word … even if just for a minute
Colorado Rockies top prospect and 2021 first-round draft pick Benny Montgomery held a Q&A with the Rockies on Twitter. Fans got a chance to ask him many questions.
Some were serious, some were just some to get to know him better, and some were asking his opinions on some of the world’s most serious issues (is a hot dog a sandwich, does pineapple belong on a pizza, etc.)
But the most important question came from the venerable Nate (@rocktober19) on Twitter: “tacos or taco’s?” Rockies Twitter knows there is only one correct answer and Montgomery is in the know.
Taco’s is something that Rockies fans have loved for years, both for the “taco’s” from Taco Bell and for the Rockies scoring seven runs in a game. But it has been for a good cause too.
Hopefully, Montgomery and other top prospects like Zac Veen and Drew Romo will be able to make taco’s for Rockies fans themselves in the near future at the MLB level.
