These Rockies won’t be picked by pundits to accomplish much this season but we’ve got some scorching hot takes for you on this Opening Day eve. They Will Not Finish In Last Place! Somehow, someway, your Colorado Rockies will not be the worst team in baseball in 2021! One could look at this cynically and suggest that it is because they don’t…

Oddly enough, despite their less-than-thirty-year-old existence, the ballclub of the Mile High City has carved out a pretty clear history defined by memorable short eras filled with intriguing characters.

Some positives can come from this, but it seems light years away from the present. With hundreds of angles from which this can be viewed, there will be no shortage of stories to file in the days and weeks ahead.
