Team Ownership Ratings, By the Community | FanGraphs Baseball
Fangraphs polled fans on their opinion of their team's ownership and (surprise!) the Rockies did not fare well, ranking 28th of 30 teams, ahead of just the Mets and Marlins, with a score of just 1.8 out of five.

In the poll, 81 percent of Rockies fans rated the Monforts as either "very bad" or "pretty bad," but consider Jeffrey Loria, who was rated as "very bad" by a whopping 89 percent of Marlins fans.

The Monforts, who scored at 1.81 were ahead of both Loria, who scored a 1.19, and the Wilpons, whose ownership of the Mets scored them a 1.69, but no one else scored below 2.44. On the other end were the Giants, whose ownership was scored at a 4.44 out of five, getting the top spot over the Cubs, Cardinals and Dodgers.
