Colorado Rockies: The 5 Most Interesting Quotes from the Last Homestand
By Kevin Henry
"“As an offense, we haven’t got going yet the way we know we can. We know we’re not hitting the way we know we can. It’s kind of frustrating. We’re happy that we’re winning and we know we haven’t even gotten close yet to what we know we can do. Hopefully we can get going and start the road trip on the right note. We’re winning ball games and we’re nowhere near what we can do.”"
Facts Behind the Quote: Heading into Wednesday’s matinee game against the San Diego Padres at Coors Field, the Rockies had a 6-3 record despite a minus-3 run differential. Think about that for a minute. Colorado is a team that is also known for offense, and with Arenado holding down the cleanup position, why wouldn’t it be?
This year, however, Colorado’s offense hasn’t clicked just yet. That should be a scary thought for the rest of the National League. The Rockies are finding success behind strong pitching. It’s been a while since those words were uttered in Denver. Once the offense catches up and starts hitting on all cylinders, the Rockies could be a very dangerous team.
