Colorado Rockies: 5 guarantees for the rest of the 2017 season
Streaks of both the losing and winning kinds are going to happen. You can be sure that there are going to be times this season when the Rockies look like the best team in Major League Baseball (see the first three games of the Philadelphia series) and times they look like they might not make the postseason (see the first three games of the Seattle series).

Sure, you’re going to see plenty of people around the country count on the Rockies having a June swoon … or fade once the All-Star break ends … or when the calendar turns to September … or whatever you might here. There are going to be people making too much of losses and too much of wins. Hey, that’s what we’re supposed to do when we follow a team with passion, right?
One thing to know, however, is that this year’s Rockies team seems to be built for longevity rather than collapse. You can walk around with a “The End is Near!” sandwich board … but this isn’t that season and this isn’t that Rockies team.
Much like the stock market, the Rockies are going to have their ups and downs this season. So will every other Major League team. However, with the Rockies, there have been plenty more high points this season than low points, no matter how you felt after the Washington series or after the first three games against the Mariners.
