The Colorado Rockies begin the final week of their 2015 season with a three-game series in Phoenix against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Colorado Rockies are now on to the final week of the 2015, the second-to-last series of the entire year, and it seems like just yesterday I took this gig and we got rolling a couple weeks before Opening Day. No, really, it feels like that was just a few weeks ago.

And yet here we are, 156 games on in the season with just two three-game series left before it’s all over and the sun sets on another year of Rockies baseball. Of course, this team has now lost 90, they’ve been long eliminated from playoff contention, and they are seemingly no closer (yet) to figuring out their struggles.

Fun! But let’s do this, well, two more times here before it’s all over: here are your probable pitchers, along with some notes on the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Finish… strong?

Hey so, like, are we through with this season yet or what?

Because I mean, come on…

No, but seriously, it will be kind of bittersweet to end this season, as bad as it’s been, because it always means that baseball (you know, except for the postseason, of which the Colorado Rockies are never involved) is over for another year and we must wait until spring for renewal and re-birth… and all that… garbage.

Yeah, so anyways, the Rockies can finish kind of strong this year if they do well in Arizona and San Francisco, because they did fairly well against Los Angeles over the weekend in the last home series at Coors Field.

Oh, and that whole finishing strong thing brings me to my next point…

The quest for 69

Staff writer Connor Farrell (@rockiesVSconnor) gets on this big kick about the #QuestFor69, because he wants the Colorado Rockies to win 69 games.

Unbelievably, it’s still within reach, and they could maybe possibly pull it off this week in Arizona and San Francisco. They’ll need to play pretty well, but hey. At least they’ve got a shot in the end.

And yes, Connor is a child, so I apologize for him. And yes, it is the end of the season so forgive me for running out of actual keys to each series. Frankly, I’m not sure if anybody is even reading this far down the page at this point in the year!

Thank you all!

No, seriously, thank you all. It’s been a hell of a (weird) year. More on that and end-of-season wrap up stuff over the next week or two, of course, but I just wanted to get it out there now that this has truly been a ton of fun with you fine folks.
