The Colorado Rockies haven’t been in the hunt for the NL West since about the 11th game of the season, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a race worth following this year.

Despite the Colorado Rockies being awful (once again) in 2015, the National League West is still a pretty interesting division.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have led the division pretty much since day one (well, since like day five considering the Rockies’ sweep to open the season in Milwaukee!), and yet now they find themselves in big trouble, playing very poorly with the San Francisco Giants on their heels.

The Dodgers were just no-hit in Houston on Friday night, after getting swept in Oakland earlier this week, so yeah, you could say it’s a full on panic. And then there are the Padres and Diamondbacks!

The Padres have disappointed this year, but they still feel like they are in the race for the division, as do the Diamondbacks, despite each club being about 7 games out. But, at this point in the year with five weeks to go, I guess you theoretically could make up a seven-game deficit…

Either way, how will the West play out?
