Colorado Rockies: 5 Bold Predictions for the 2017 Season
So if all of the honors happen that we’ve discussed in the previous slides, surely that means that Colorado will be swept back into Rocktober this season, right? We say absolutely right.
The stars will align in 2017 for the Rockies to return to the postseason. In fact, they’ll be one of three teams out of the National League West to earn a postseason berth. We’re predicting the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the division while the San Francisco Giants and Rockies will play a one-game Wild Card battle at Coors Field.
After a Colorado Wild Card win, the Rockies will take on the National League Central champion Chicago Cubs while the Dodgers face the Washington Nationals. While the Rockies will give the Cubs all they can handle, Chicago will prevail in the series-deciding game in front of a boisterous crowd at Wrigley Field.
That will be the boost the Cubs need to once again qualify for the World Series, facing the Boston Red Sox in a World Series that time forgot.
Sure, we’d love to take the Rockies to win it all, but we’re also setting the table for years to come. This is a young, hungry Colorado team that will taste big doses of success in 2017. With that, this season begins a nice run for the Rockies as one of the National League’s top teams.
