Thank You, Colorado
Denver has always been a fun city to visit. And what John Elway did to the Packers a few years back has certainly earned Denver a warm place in the heart of many a Chicagoan. But what they did last night was tremendous.
Winning 21 of 22 games is not to what I was referring. Rather that the Rockies sweep prevented as many as three more nights of suffering through the prattling of Chip Caray is a debt all of America owes to the Rockies.
And The Downside

Chicago White Sox
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Dodgers
New York Mets
New York Yankees
It's only Seattle, Tampa Bay, Texas, Washington/Montreal and the Cubs that are pennantless since 1967. And Toronto, Arizona, and Colorado didn't exist in 1967.
Anyone want to give the Cubs the "Cleveland Browns" deal? Move the Cubs away, rename them, and let a new owner restart the Cubs as an expansion franchise.
It won't be any worse.
