Reader: Colorado Rockies would be even better if they got rid of Dinger

When Tim Lincecum isn't on the mound, the Colorado Rockies are among the very best teams in baseball. But in response to a Kyle Garratt post about the Rockies series against the San Francisco Giants, one reader had a gripe.

Not about one of the players, mind you. About the mascot.

Dean S writes:

Can someone please get rid of Dinger? That act is so tired and bush league. Send him to the Rockies AAA affiliate where he belongs. Either that, or I think if he wants to be a part of the game, brushback pitches and bean balls towards the asinine mascot should be fair game.
