It’s been eight years since the Colorado Rockies were in this position. The postseason is in finally in sight, and this time, the boys in purple don’t need anybody’s help.

The Rockies haven’t made it easy on themselves for much of this season, and the final weekend won’t be any different. The mighty Los Angeles Dodgers are in town, and they won’t roll over — with the best record in baseball, the Dodgers want to hit the postseason in full stride.

Hosts Shawn Drotar & T.J.
