O’Dowd can’t be blamed completely for the fiasco — Jorge De La Rosa’s season-ending injury, Carlos Gonzalez’s wall collision, the dismal efforts of his acquisitions Jose Lopez and Ty Wigginton, the continuing embarrassment by Ian Stewart, Chris Iannetta and Dexter Fowler as major-league hitters, Jimenez’s first-half breakdown (combined with his second-half collapse last season), the farcical home record, the preposterous Sunday losing streak, the lack of clutch hitting, the others starters’ inconsistencies and immaturity and the overall ill being.
However, O’Dowd, as the Rockies “executive vice president, chief baseball officer, general manager,” must be held accountable, but won’t be.
O’Dowd should take the blame for the Jimenez trade — and his failure at the deal deadline to get rid of the veteran players who have proven they’re incompetent.
He should accept the blame for manager Jim Tracy having to start a pitcher knowing Ubaldo already had been traded.
