If the Rockies stick to a roster similar to this, the season will be an all-out slugfest for the National League West title and a return to the playoffs. On paper, this team should be primed and ready for Opening Day.

Now, these are predictions, meaning that things are bound to change. There are still plenty of questions that may pop up from now until Opening Day with CarGo or Reynolds or even Greg Holland, but they will all be sorted out. The guys on this roster offer things that can only help the Rockies with their playoff push. Bud Black and the rest of the coaching staff are sitting atop a treasure and they have many avenues they can take.
