With the holidays in the rearview mirror, it is now just a few short days until 2019 begins. With that in mind, we are taking a look back at some of our most popular articles from 2018 that might be good for all Colorado Rockies fans to read before the New Year begins.

As this year comes to a close, it is amazing to look back on the roller coaster ride that was the Colorado Rockies in 2018.
