The Colorado Rockies have a very short homestead this week, playing the Seattle Mariners for three games before heading back to another East Coast road trip.

The Colorado Rockies get an abbreviated home stand — only three games — against a decent enough club (don’t let the record fool you) — before heading back out on the road again over the weekend for a brutal east coast road trip.

So, suffice to say, coming off a road trip against the Cubs and Cardinals, and heading out for an east coast swing that includes the Nationals and Mets, means that three home games against the Mariners may be some of the Rockies’ best opportunities for a respite from the onslaught of good clubs away from Coors Field.

In other words, these three games may be the oasis in a long two weeks. And the Rockies may still blow it! (Too pessimistic?)
