So the Colorado Rockies have been playing pretty well. I mean, taking two of three from the Cardinals is something nobody should complain about, and while it doesn’t make their season, it would make for a pretty good week, right?

The club entered their series with the Marlins sitting at 27-31, which isn’t a playoff contender — and the Rockies would have a ton of work to do this year to do that — but it is better than we all thought they were gonna be this season.

The last three weeks, especially, have been solid; the Rockies have won 12 of their last 18 games entering the Miami series, benefitting from significant rotation help from newcomers Chad Bettis, Chris Rusin, and David Hale. Jorge De La Rosa, too, is starting to find his way on the mound, and all of a sudden, four-fifths of the Rockies’ rotation is looking pretty damn good.
