DENVER (CBS4) — Gov. Jared Polis says Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort is “cautiously optimistic” that the players and the owners will reach an agreement.

“We are excited that hopefully in mid-July, we’ll welcome the Rockies back for a limited spring training course field, and then a limited regular season,” Gov. Polis said Thursday. “And we certainly hope that the owners and the players come together soon around a final agreement.”

    According to radio sports announcers, this is being held up by EIGHT (out of 30) team owners – and at least one announcer is so PO’d he recommended finding a “new” sport to be the “boys” of summer, including lacrosse or MLS soccer (and there’s even a rugby team to root for). Even talked about the fact that there would be no 4th of July baseball (and many fireworks displays have been cancelled as well) – but the 2020 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest WILL be on ESPN – and he’s calling the “eaters” the REAL boys of summer right now.
