The Colorado Rockies have had a tough time recently during ininterleague play — so let’s scrap the whole system and only play the NL! (Just kidding.)

The lead line is a joke — I don’t actually advocate for abolishing interleague play just because the Colorado Rockies aren’t great at it — but there are differing schools of opinion on the yearly AL-NL meet-ups that are happening more and more across baseball.
On the one hand, it’s fun to see teams like the Angels and Astros, which the Rockies very rarely see and without interleague play obviously would never face. (Well, until the World Series, you guys!)
On the other hand, it turns out that interleague play isn’t as popular with people as you might have assumed, which is interesting.
So now that the Rockies are wrapping up another round of interleague games with the Houston Astros, I thought I’d get your thoughts on the whole phenomenon, which is now nearing its 20th year (!!) of use.
Pretty simple poll question today, so get to it:
The Rockies will next play an American League club when they head to Oakland for three games against the Athletics beginning on June 29, by the way.
