Photos: Twenty most memorable Colorado Rockies suck memes

It's the Major League Baseball All-Star break, and that's appropriate, because the Colorado Rockies are broken. The team has gone from better than expected to as horrible as usual over the course of the season to date, with owner Dick Monfort making a bad situation infinitely worse by suggesting to one disgruntled fan that maybe Denver doesn't deserve a team anymore. The line prompted one wit to put the Rockies up for sale in a now-pulled Craigslist ad that we managed to screen-capture before it disappeared.

The Colorado Rockies Memes Facebook page reflects the resulting frustration; nearly every recent post is negative, with Monfort and general manager Dan O'Dowd coming in for the vast majority of (thoroughly deserved) bashing. Continue to check out our picks for the twenty most memorable Colorado Rockies suck memes, with the Craigslist ad included as a special bonus.
