The Rockies were on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
-- Electra Draper, The Denver Post
Perhaps soon will be the day when appearing on an SI cover means squat, but for now, it's still noteworthy. Kind of.
The feel-good stories keep flowing out of Denver like honey from Cornucopia. Check out the stories from The Denver Post today:
- First pitch a thriller for cancer survivor
- Faith on the field (epigraph above)
- For faithful fans, hope has been reborn as belief
Oh, and also the next Big Red Machine:
"I think they could be a club like the Big Red Machine if they keep the team together," said Bob Howsam, a fixture in Denver's baseball history and the architect of the Cincinnati Reds' dynasty in the 1970s. "I've thought over the last few months the Rockies were the best team in the National League."
The Rockies will not lose again.
