Colorado Rockies: Diamondbacks series to be closely watched
1 of 3
I’m very excited to say: baseball is officially back. Happy Opening Day! It’s been a long time coming, from questionable offseason moves to the slow free agent market, here we are. The Colorado Rockies have a lot going for them and can most definitely pull off a good series against the Arizona Diamonds to kick off the season. Due to this being Opening Day, many Rockies fans will be closely watching this game. Here’s the reasons why.
It’s a replay of the NL Wild Card
This is essentially the NL Wild Card game once again, minus Zack Greinke starting. Some may see it as a redeeming series to certain Rockies fans that were hurt by the Wild Card game. With Jon Gray on the mound, everyone’s got their postseason feels. Since this is the first game of the season, it’s very important to see that the Rockies feel secure with their rotation in having Jon Gray at the helm.
Along with the security of the lineup as well, if you recall from the Wild Card game, some bats were not there during a needed time to get the win over the Dbacks. Winning the first game of the series not only shows Rockies fans they still have something to believe in, but that this team is serious about contending once again.
