Maybe it’s a good thing baseball isn’t back quite yet.
Think back to the times where the Colorado Rockies are in the lead late in the game and then that guy comes to the plate. You just hate to see him and his stupid face because you know he’s about to hit a game-tying homer or crush a double in the gap that will cap off a five-run inning that the Rockies won’t come back from. They’re such a terrible sight to see.
Now imagine that the Rockies have to face an entire lineup of those players. Would you ever watch another game again? Probably not. It’d be too painful.
But I am brave. I have faced our ghosts of baseball past and have gone through the numbers to construct a lineup with players over the last 10 years that the Rockies could never beat. The purple pinstripes always brought out the best in them and we wish it could’ve been against another team, but here we are.
Let’s take a look at what this starting lineup would look like (or if you’d rather bash your head into a wall repeatedly then that may work as well).
