The Colorado Rockies lost, yet again, on Thursday. This time it was a 1-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants, meaning that the Rockies have lost 10 of their last 11 games. It also means that the Rockies are off to their worst start since the 2005 season, in which they ended up going 67-95. Given that the Rockies have made the postseason in the past two years, some people are shocked by the Rockies being so bad thus far. However, you should have seen at least some of this coming.
The Colorado Rockies have had a very rough start to their 2019 season. There is no doubt that some of the reason that they are struggling is that they’ve been hampered with injuries, including injuries to David Dahl, Daniel Murphy, Ryan McMahon, Tyler Anderson, Antonio Senzatela, Chris Rusin, and Jake McGee in the beginning of the season or late spring training.
This is also not the only problem.
The Rockies offense and pitching staff have been awful.
With being shutout on Thursday, they have not have held a lead in 54 innings, their longest streak of not having a lead since they went 59 innings from May 10-17 in 2008.
