Not to knock this idea, but online petition's don't accomplish much. Lists of names submitted electronically--that can't be hijacked, right?

So basically Kiszla, who scripted the Rockies season last weekend, thinks it's time for a change in ownership. That's all well and good, and possibly needed, but we've had these articles for the past few seasons. It's nothing new. He's right, however:

This is not a knee-jerk reaction to 18 games on the 2007 schedule, but the result of many years of hollow promises and playoff-drought ineptitude.

But new ownership might not be a cure-all for the franchise. The new guys can equally make the promise of playoffs and not deliver.

One question for Kiszla: Will you lead those protests in front of Coors Field?

A year ago, Todd Helton was in the hospital. Now he has a much different outlook, but he won't let you know what it is.

Jeff Francis would fail as a realtor:

"It's a lot like real estate, it's about location," manager Clint Hurdle said. "His [Francis'] fastball command hasn't been what we have seen from him in the past. He's getting behind in counts."

Just go out next time and try, try again, right? Or is the mantra, "Always be closing."
