If everything was equal, the Colorado Rockies have been worse than average.
With all of that into consideration, across 29 seasons, the Colorado Rockies would have played in the Survivor’s Cup eight times, most likely winning four times, losing twice, and two of the games being too close to call.
What does that mean for the Colorado Rockies, though?
In theory, if everything was equal, every team in the MLB should be in The Survivor Cup once every five years and lose the Survivor Cup once every ten.
This means the Rockies are a slightly worse team than average, as they should have only appeared in 6 Survivor Cups in their short time in the league. They are average for losing the Survivor Cup though, only losing (most likely) twice and most likely one of the toss-ups, so we can take solace in that.
If the Colorado Rockies were to be relegated down to Class B, then 2005 would have been the year it most likely would have happened. Good thing it didn’t, I guess.
Relegation will probably never happen. Owners would see it as too much of a risk and would most likely rather eat glass than risk being relegated to a lower level. Relegation gives teams a reason to play, to try, to not lose their spot. While incremental, it would help create a more interesting and competitive sport. After all, Isn’t that what we all want? Growth and competition?
Ah well, enjoy the lockout. Hopefully, it will be over soon.
