Two games down and 160 games to go. So far, the Colorado Rockies started the 2018 season just liked they finished 2017. They lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-2 at Chase Field on Thursday night and dropped a 9-8 decision on Friday night.

While the first game of the season is a national holiday for most baseball fans, it is also probably the least significant game of the entire year. Players are getting back into the swing of things while also trying to battle Opening Day nerves.

So just like the first page of a book doesn’t tell the entire story, this first game won’t determine the overall season. However, that is exactly what I am going to do. I’m going to predict the Rockies 2018 season solely based on this one game.
