The Colorado Rockies’ inaugural season was in 1993 – and they’ve never won their division.
Starting on Monday, a pivotal series with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chavez Ravine will go a long way towards deciding if the Rockies capture their first NL West crown… or make the postseason at all.
The Rockies hold a narrow, half-game lead over the home Dodgers, who will send Hyun-Jin Ryu, Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler to the mound, respectively. The Rockies with counter with Jon Gray. Kyle Freeland and Tyler Anderson, with each game possibly deciding not only who will lead the division, but possibly build on that lead, to boot.
Host Shawn Drotar (Host, “Mornings at 5280′“) and guest Ronnie Kohrt (Host, “The Broncos Blitz” podcast) talk about the significance of the three-game series – the Rockies have never been in first place this late in the season – and whether the wild-card race (The Rockies lead the Cardinals for the second wild-card spot by only percentage points) is worth paying attention to at all.
NL West champs or bust? Shawn and Ronnie discuss all of these topics and more in this episode of the “Blake Street Irregulars”!
