The Colorado Rockies are certainly not where they thought they would be as the second half of the 2019 season dawns. At 44-45 and in fourth place in the National League West, the Rockies entered the All-Star break on a six-game losing skid and 14.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the division.
Sounds like a lot of doom and gloom, huh? In some ways, it is. The Colorado Rockies have not met expectations so far this season, particularly on the mound. That’s one of the three biggest disappointments of the 2019 campaign that we talked about in this article.
However, it’s not all bad. The Rockies are one of six teams within 2.5 games of a Wild Card spot so a third consecutive postseason appearance is certainly still possible. Will it be easy to get back to Rocktober? Absolutely not … but it is still possible.
But hey, the past is the past. The Rockies can do nothing about the previous 89 games. It’s looking ahead to the remaining 73 that are the key to unlocking another Rocktober trip. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re going to do in this article.
