Dick Monfort stirred the frustration of Rockies fans on Tues.The Colorado Rockies lost in Miami on Tuesday night. Of course, that was no surprise.Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton came up with the tying run at third base, and both predictably failed. It was simply par for the course in a season that has shown the true colors of a franchise.The real news came earlier in the day when the Denver Post published an article penned by beat writer Patrick Saunders. Shocking many fans, and yet, not surprising others, principle owner Dick Monfort expressed his support for both general manager Dan O'Dowd and manager Jim Tracy.In the article, Monfort said "I know everybody wants a fall guy and everybody wants blood. I just don't think it's appropriate to do."The confusion begins at this point. What exactly does a statement like that mean?
