Having just passed the halfway point of the 2020 regular season, the Colorado Rockies stand just above .500 with a 16-15 record.

The 16-15 mark pales in comparison to what Colorado Rockies fans hoped would be the case at this juncture, particularly after Colorado bolted out of the starting gate this season by winning 11 of its first 14 games to stand atop the National League West for the season’s first two weeks.

But there were a few signs evident in the just completed three-game road series sweep with Arizona that might indicate the Rox have begun to return to their winning ways from earlier in the campaign.

As the Rockies embark on the season’s second half by preparing to open a six-game homestand against NL West foes San Diego (four games) and San Francisco (two games), here are three things that could have an impact on the team’s chances to grab one of the NL’s eight playoff berths at the end of the regular season.
