The Colorado Rockies haven’t been in contention for a long time, but now that the trade deadline is behind us, there are a few things to expect in the next two months. 

More from Colorado Rockies News

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the Colorado Rockies will not be contending for anything this year. Well, they are contending (and, fortunately, not winning) the race for the worst record in baseball, so there’s that.

But they’ve been out of the playoff hunt since May, when they had that brutal 11-game losing streak and were psychologically dropped from the playoff race as much as you can be that early in the season.

The rest of the year really has just been an overly-done up exercise in going through the motions. But, hey. Such is baseball.

And now, here today, they find themselves floating right around 15-games-under-.500, they’re not pitching well at all, they’re starting to get guys winding up on thee disabled list… Oh yeah, and they traded Troy Tulowitzki. (Not sure if you heard? Not sure if anybody is talking about it yet.) Yeah, all together, the whole thing’s a cluster.

But there’s hope! (Maybe… probably not, but maybe.) The hope is that Jeff Bridich and Walt Weiss see the light, and suddenly understand that the next two months can be bearable if the Rockies get young. They’re going to lose anyways, whether it’s with veterans or young guys — and they’ve proven that for several seasons — so why not get younger while you’re losing and, you know, maybe learn something for next year?
