"As wonderfully as the entire team played, it was Arenado’s night – one that he will certainly never forget. And for Rockies fans it was another reason to smile in what has so far been a magical season"

"The Rockies aren’t supposed to be good enough to snag a series from the Giants on their home turf. The fact is, Colorado has played better than most folks expected and, if we focus on the small victories, there remains plenty of cause to be upbeat"

"Simply put, the Rockies have become a cheap date night for the residents of Denver, Colorado - that’s what the Rockies are and that’s what the Rockies will be until fans stop buying overpriced Coors Light and supporting the joke of a baseball team which plays at 20th and Blake."

For the second straight year ESPN Insider has ranked all 30 MLB teams in order of their future power rankings over the next five seasons.
The rankings consider the current major league lineups, the farm systems, quality of management and financial flexibility of various franchises and how those particulars will affect their competitiveness not only for the coming season but for the next several seasons.

For the Rockies to reach their non-goal of losing 100 games this season they must drop 40 of 65. We're pretty sure that they can handle that ... but can they catch the Astros?

What a shame that this part of our sports calendar is so fleeting. Baseball and Basketball are completely different - but they go great together.
