The Rockies are one of baseball’s newest teams, joining Major League Baseball for the 1993 season. Colorado wasted little time before making noise in the National League, earning a playoff spot in 1995 after four different hitters mashed 30+ home runs during the regular season. The Rockies didn’t have a huge amount of success despite starting one of the best first baseman of the generation, Todd Helton, for 17 seasons. In 2007 Colorado set a franchise record with 90 regular season wins. That Rockies team showed impressive power, with four players crushing at least 24 home runs. With one of the best one-two punches in baseball in shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Matt Holliday, the Rockies won its first playoff series with a sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS. They then swept the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLCS to reach the franchise’s first World Series, but were then knocked out of the playoffs in four games by the Boston Red Sox. Colorado’s most recent playoff appearance was in 2009, when the Rockies set a new franchise record with 92 wins, but were eliminated from the playoffs in the first round.

2017 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.

2016 Colorado Rockies Season Preview
Last season was the end of the era for the Colorado Rockies, as longtime Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was traded to Toronto. But the Rockies enter the 2016 season ready to start a new chapter, and much of the excitement is centered around the growth of Tulowitzki’s replacement Trevor Story. Story fought for and earned the Colorado Rockies starting shortstop job in spring training, and is a force behind the plate. While Colorado brought in outfielder Gerardo Parra for the 2016 to try and sure up their offensive numbers, the real question mark for the Rockies coming into the 2016 season, will be on the pitching mound. Colorado lacks the shutdown pitching required to make a run at the Fall Classic, and will hope that young pitchers Chad Bettis, and Tyler Chatwood can move the corner and be top of the rotation guys in Colorado.
2015 Colorado Rockies Season Preview
The Colorado Rockies had an up and down season again in 2014. The Rockies finished the year with 66 wins and 96 losses, which comes in as the 2nd highest loss total in team history. Part of the difficulty for the Rockies stems from being in the NL West, which included the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, as well as the division winning Los Angeles Dodgers. The 2015 Colorado Rockies look to try and change the teams luck and return to October play for the first time since 2009. In the offseason, the Colorado Rockies picked up key layers Nick Hundley, David Hale, Kyle Kendrick, and Jairo Diaz. But the Rockies will live and die once again on the play of star Troy Tulowitzki. #2 continues to be the heart and soul of the Rockies team and will team up with Justin Morneau to try and push the Rockies back into the postseason in 2015.
2014 Colorado Rockies Season Preview
Just how good is this Rockies team? They have the offense to challenge for a postseason spot, but will the pitching be there? Will they be more like the 64-win team of 2012 or could they improve into an 80+ win club in 2014? Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki are looking to make it the latter. Justin Morneau has joined his old Twins teammate Michael Cuddyer in Denver, and the Rockies offense looks potent. The pitching staff is led by Jhoulys Chacin, but they’ll need to count on healthy seasons from Jorge de la Rosa and Brett Anderson if they want to get on the right side of .500 once again.
The Rockies will be an interesting team to follow, especially if they can stay healthy. Depth is not their strength, but talent in important positions. They have a mountain to climb to compete with the Dodgers in the NL West.
