Happy Birthday Garrett Atkins! You’re Fired!

I’m sure Garrett Atkins received a lot of nice things for his 30th birthday on Saturday, but a new contract from the Colorado Rockies was not among them.

The Rockies informed Atkins,  just as he was sitting down to enjoy a little cake and ice cream, that they had elected to decline offering him a 2010 contract, officially ending his ten year run with the organization and a six year run with the major league team.

Yes, that’s correct, they canned an organization mainstay and one time franchise cornerstone on his milestone 30th  birthday.  That has to rate pretty highly on the heartless scale, doesn’t it?

The Rockies have known since June that Atkins wouldn’t be in their plans next season.  They obviously couldn’t trade him because his value tanked, but they could have released him anytime in the last two months.  But no, they elected to wait until the final minutes before the non-tender deadline of his birthday to make the decision official.

That’s just wrong.

And then on top of that we’re only 11 shoplifting days shy of Christmas!

So his wife can stop dreaming about being the woman in the Kay’s Jewelers commercial.

Hmm… I think I’ll slot this callous act somewhere between the Chicago Bulls firing Scott Skiles on Christmas Eve and Clark W. Griswold not getting his Christmas bonus until cousin Eddie kidnapped and tortured his boss.

Heartless Firings

I hope you’re proud of yourself Dan O’Dowd!  That is NOT good company.

Check back Wednesday for a special The Life and Times of Garrett Atkins… as a Rockie.

    Good I’m glad that worthless Atkins is gone. This guy has no passion, as soon as he got a few million dollar contract his production tanked. Go figure!..his defense is like wathing a clown trying to play 3rd base. I just wish they would have traded him when his value was decent.
