Lineup Card: Rockies @ Padres 5-8-12

Our condolenses go out to the family of former Rockies owner Jerry McMorris, who passed away today at the age of 71. 

Current Rockies owner Dick Monfort released the following statement on his passing (via Colorado Rockies on Twitter).

"The Colorado Rockies family is deeply saddened by the passing of Jerry McMorris. I believe it's fair to say without the efforts of Jerry there may have never been MLB in Denver. He will be greatly missed by us all.”

I'll have a few more thoughts on Jerry McMorris during tonight's Recap. But in short, he was a good man and an important person to me and every Rockies fans out there. He will certainly be missed, but always appreciated.
