The Colorado Rockies are on pace to lose 94 or 95 games, though paces can certainly change quickly thanks to a tough road trip. Is this the road to 100?

The Colorado Rockies haven’t lost 100 games since… praise Jesus, they’ve never lost 100! They lost 96 last year, 98 in 2012, and they kicked away 95 games in 2005 and 1993, but those are the four worst seasons in Rockies’ history (yay?).

This year, after Saturday night’s loss to the Washington Nationals, the Rockies find themselves at 46-62 on the season, with 54 games left to go — in other words, they are exactly two-thirds of the way through the season.

That .426 winning percentage puts them on pace to go 69-93. To lose 100 games this year, they’d have to go 16-38 (.296) the rest of the way which is going to be a challenge to be that bad — and relatively unlikely — but, I guess you never know.

As it is, a 69-93 record that they’re on pace for would be the sixth worst year in club history. So I guess that’s our (depressing) question exactly two-thirds of the way through the year… will the Rockies lose 100 this year? (And how badly does it suck to ask this question again, and again, and again?)

You know what to do: @RoxPileFS, @BobbyDeMuro, comments down below this post, telegrams, the ‘telephone’ game you played as a kid, and carrier pigeons are all accepted. Have at it.
