The Dodgers are without question the most hated team in the NL West. They’ve won every division title for half a decade and the rest of the division is ready to see that end. The Rockies are the West’s final hope of dethroning the Dodgers and we all know how much Arizona and San Francisco would relish contributing to L.A.’s downfall.
It is also important to note that the Dodgers have only gone 7-9 against Arizona this season, including going 2-5 at Chase Field. For Rockies’ fans, there is reason to have hope that this final road trip won’t be easy for the Dodgers.
The last week will be even more difficult for the Cardinals. They play three at home against the dangerous Milwaukee Brewers before heading to Chicago for a three game set against the Cubs. That means that even if the Dodgers are able to hold off the Rockies in the division, Colorado still has a good chance of catching the Red Birds for the second Wild Card spot.
Of course this is all speculation, but after the road sweep of the D-backs, it feels like the Rockies might have one last dominant homestand left in them. Despite trailing in the standings, they may have the advantage in the final week. A week that could pan out to be the most important in franchise history.
