A testament to great management, the Colorado Rockies have improved in the standings for three straight years and returned to the postseason in 2017. In an effort to solidify their improvement while calling a hitter’s park home, they signed one of the best closers in baseball in Wade Davis.

2018 Rockies Season Preview
The Rockies proved themselves as potential contenders last year when finished 3rd in the NL West with 75 wins and saw a small chance at Wild Card contention. As their prospects continue to gain experience, the Rockies are looking stronger than they have been in a while, and with the addition of Ian Desmond it will be fun to see how the Rockies fair out against division rivals, the Dodgers and Giants.

Rockies vs. Diamondbacks
These two NL West Clubs have quite a lot in common, and have shared some great matchups over the last 20 years. Both clubs are the only teams currently in the NL West that were not founding members, and have had to compete with established NL powers such as the Giants and Dodgers. The rivalry really gained traction in 2007 when both clubs made the playoffs and met for the NLCS. The Rockies won the series 4-0 and the Diamondbacks have never forgotten.
Rockies vs. Padres
Although this rivalry lacks the flare of Giants-Dodgers, it has been one of the most consistent in recent history. Both clubs have been evenly matched over the last couple years, and are a few young stars away from making a run at the NL West Pennant. While this rivalry has been competitive, it has yet to make its way into the limelight because both teams have yet to be contenders at the same time. When that inevitably happens, expect this rivalry to be one of the most fun to watch in the NL.
Rockies vs. Giants
While many Giants fans, writers, and media dismiss this game, they are missing one key factor. The Rockies always have their targets set on the Giants. The Rockies proved in 2007 that they have a great front office, and have the ability to put together a team worthy of reaching the World Series. It will only be a matter of time before they are an elite team again, and once that happens, the late season matchups between these teams promise to be as exciting as any in September.
Colorado Rockies in the World Series, National League Championship Series and MLB Playoffs
As an expansion team in 1993, it didn’t take long for the Colorado Rockies to make an impact. After missing the playoffs in their first two seasons, the Rockies earned a trip to the postseason as a Wild Card team in 1995. The Rockies didn’t return to the postseason again until 2007 when they also won their first NL pennant. Colorado is still searching for their first World Series and division title.
