Since the end of the shortened 2020 season, it seems a lot has gone wrong for the Colorado Rockies. Following baseball’s best record (11-3) on August 8, the team crashed and burned to a second consecutive fourth-place finish in the National League West only to see their rival and bully Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series.
