A prime example of giving God credit for the good but never blame for the bad:
“I think God is the reason we got this far,” Rockies reliever Matt Herges said. “We’ve done some amazing things this year (that are) hard to know. Something is going on. I think we may be getting favors from God.
“It’s not like the Red Sox are going against God. I’m sure they have Christians over there. But we realize what a blessing this is.”
A USA TODAY story in May 2006 revealed that from ownership down, the Rockies are guided by Christianity. They are open to all religious beliefs but embrace a Christian-based code of conduct.
