Rockies Riot: Colorado Rockies Season Review (so far)

The Colorado Rockies have had an… up and down season to say the least. Going into the season, Rockies fans didn’t expect a World Series to come back to Colorado. Us fans did however expect a better record than the 2015 season, where the Rockies finished 68-94, which was last place in a weak NL West. More than halfway into this season, the Rockies are 56-59, on a great pace to be better than last year. They are currently 3rd place in the NL West and still in the conversation at 4.5 games out of the 2nd Wild Card spot. However, they will need to buckle down if they want to make the postseason.TrevorStory

The Rockies started the 2016 season with a below average start. They were in between 4th place and 5th place all year, until after the All-Star break. After All-Star weekend, the Rockies kicked it into high gear and had the best record after All-Star weekend at 16-4 at one point. That got them into wild card talks. At one point, the Rockies held the second wild card spot. But, in the past couple weeks disaster has struck the team. With losses to the Marlins (who hold the first wildcard spot), Rangers and Dodgers (who hold the second wild card spot), the team has fallen to 4.5 games out of the second wild card spot. And as if, making the playoffs wasn’t hard enough, the Rockies will most likely have to do it without their rookie star, Trevor Story.

Trevor Story was having an incredible season to say the least. He hit a home run in the first 6 games of the season. Before he tore a ligament in his thumb, causing him to most likely miss the rest of his rookie showcase, Story was batting .272 with 27 Home runs and 72 RBI’s. Him and Carlos Gonzalez were without a doubt the two best sluggers on the team. With one of them out, a lot of the hits will rely on Gonzalez, who participated in the Home Run Derby this year. But, fans shouldn’t be to down on their luck, with next season looking really bright for the Rockies. In fact, I’ll go on record and guarantee a playoff spot in the 2016-17 campaign. But as for now, we’ll just have to roll with the punches and hope for the best for the Colorado Rockies.
