With eight games on the schedule, this is a big week for the Colorado Rockies. Theoretically, they could be as good as 21-21 or as bad as 13-29 at the end of the week. Hopefully it’s closer to that first one. The good news is that all eight games are at home, which should provide the Rockies with a good opportunity to make up ground.
