To say that the Colorado Rockies are going to be bad in 2021 is no one’s idea of a bold prediction. It wouldn’t even be a stretch to say that they’re going to lose 100 games for the first time in franchise history.
Remember when Dick Monfort predicted a 94-win 2020 season before the pandemic? After they lost 91 games the year before and didn’t make any major offseason moves which ultimately alienated arguably the greatest player in franchise history? In the words of the cinematic classic Superbad, “People don’t forget.”

It’s very clear that, this offseason, Rockies fans haven’t forgotten a lot of things, including the team’s struggles over the last two seasons after back-to-back postseason appearances and, yes, that one trade that happened involving the St. Louis Cardinals. But hey, Nolan Arenado said he has “moved on” from the Rockies, and it’s time that we look ahead rather than behind, don’t you think?
Sure, the Rockies owner made a lot of noise with his bold prediction of 94 wins. This list, however, is going to be founded in somewhat realistic terms.
