Rockies owner: 'We've got to get better'

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort served as a tour guide as he showed off more than $6 million in renovations at Coors Field.

Monfort proudly pointed out revamped suites, seats behind home plate with more leg room and a play area for kids who are more interested in fun than the actual game.

As for the upgrades on the field, well, those have been a little more modest. The Rockies didn't make much noise in the offseason, which is why many pundits have predicted the Rockies will finish near the bottom of the NL West this season.

Monfort understands the skepticism, especially after losing a franchise-worst 98 games in 2012.

Before his team's home opener Friday against San Diego, Monfort said: "We've got to get better."
