The Colorado Rockies lead the NL West and control their destiny with fewer than three weeks left in the season, which makes the nine-game road trip they’re starting the most important one in their history.

Host Shawn Drotar (Host, “Mornings at 5280′“) and guest Doug Ottewill (Editor-in-Chief, Mile High Sports Magazine) discuss how the Rockies have to approach the most pivotal nine games in their history, including improving their on-base percentage, and finding a way to keep opposing runs off the board in the opening frames.

The Rockies are on the precipice of unprecedented regular-season success; Shawn and Doug discuss all of these topics and more in this episode of the “Blake Street Irregulars”!
