Let’s start a look at the top 50 Colorado Rockies of all time by looking at the players who come in at numbers 50-41 on the list.

Welcome to my top 50 all-time Colorado Rockies list. This, like my article detailing the 10 best Opening Day lineups, will be highly subjective as I reiterate this is my list. I only looked at each players career with the Rockies so, even though some players may have gone on to/had a great career before arriving/after leaving LoDo, only those that excelled while in purple and black were considered. For example, Jason Giambi, despite his late-game heroics in 2007 and 2008, will not be making an appearance on this list.

This is the first installment of five as we count down to the best Colorado Rockies player of all-time. All stats are per baseball-reference.com. I leaned heavily on Rockies career WAR, dWAR and OPS+/ERA+, but the biggest factor was personal eye-test to differentiate those clustered close by numbers.

I truly enjoyed delving into the best of the team I hold closest to my heart. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did putting it together. As always, please comment below or hit me up on any of my social media accounts linked in the article to let me know what you think of my list and let me know what your list looks like.
