All Aboard The Rockies Freight Train


We don't know about the rest of you, but as the National League makes its mad scramble to the finish, with still no playoff spots secured, the team we're developing an emotional attachment to are the Colorado Rockies.

Over the next four days, the Rockies will play the Dodgers tonight and then host the Diamondbacks for three games with everything lining up perfectly. We know you don't know the Rockies well: Their starters for the next four games are Franklin Morales, Jeff Francis, Mark Redman and Ubaldo Jimenez. Whoever the heck these guys are, they're awesome! They're riding a 10-game win streak at the exact right time, and they're messing with everything that was supposed to be sacred and set about the National League race. Do you realize that if the Rockies win their next four games, they could end up with the best record in the National League? The Rockies!

We couldn't be more excited, and we're not alone. Ride on, Rockies, whoever the heck you are and plan to be.
