So, we’ve heard this every year for how many seasons now? “The Rockies are going to sneak up on people” and “They sure can swing it”. Yes, the Rockies have been able to hit for the better part of 20 years. They also have had less than a handful of bona-fide front line starting pitchers in that same span. If you can’t pitch, you can’t win playoff games.
Sure Arenado, Car-Go and Trevor Story are going to combine for like, 100 homers and 350 RBIs, but the Rocks are also going to give up a touchdown a game. But hey, at least their mascot screams bravado from Rocky Mountain highs.
