The Colorado Rockies have played 81 games and they are 34-47, meaning that they are on pace for a 68-94 season.
However, the story of their season has been their home/road splits. Here is their home and road records:
- Home record: 28-16, .636 winning percentage
- Road record: 6-31, .162 winning percentage
Since the Rockies have played five more home games than road games in the first half and the team will likely be trading some of their players away in the coming weeks, it stands to reason that they will be even worse in the second half of the season.
However, in the first half, the team’s report cards are very different between their play at home and on the road. So let’s dive in.
Colorado Rockies home offense: A-
At home, the Colorado Rockies are hitting .285/.344/.477 with a wRC+ of 94 (which is, honestly, very harsh).
For those slash line numbers, those are 1st, 5th, and 2nd among the 30 teams in home games. Their weighted On-Base Average (wOBA) is .351 at Coors (3rd-best) and their 20.2 strikeout rate is also second-best.
They could do slightly better, though, which is why we have them at an A- and not an A+ or A.
Colorado Rockies road offense: F
This is the main reason why the Rockies are so bad on the road. They are far and away the worst offense in baseball on the road and one of the worst in MLB history.
They are hitting .196/.270/.296 on the road with a wRC+ of 57. They strike out 27.2 percent of the time on the road too. For the slash line, all three are the worst in baseball and by a fairly wide margin. The wRC+ is the worst in baseball by a very wide margin (the next worse team is at 80) and the strikeout rate is 4th-worst.
