So how will the Colorado Rockies fare in the 2017 season? That’s the big question on everyone’s mind as we tick ever closer to the start of the regular season.
There is a lot of excitement being generated about this year’s team … and a lot of buzz that this could be the year that the postseason returns to Coors Field. But will it happen? That’s one of the questions that we posed to each person who writes for Rox Pile.
We asked each of our writers to answer three simple questions…
What will Colorado’s 2017 record be (162-game regular season schedule)?
Who will be Colorado’s biggest surprise and disappointment?
Why will or why won’t Colorado make the playoffs?
Yes, we are looking into our crystal ball today to see exactly how the Rockies will do this season in their first campaign under new manager Bud Black. With a plethora of injuries in spring training, will that be enough to keep Colorado from competing for a National League West title and/or a Wild Card slot? Will the Rockies be able to overcome the loss of veteran pitcher Chad Bettis in the rotation? Will Trevor Story and David Dahl be able to recapture the magic they created in their first big-league seasons?
There are so many questions to answer … and our experts are ready to do that. Let’s dive in.
