Week 21 of the regular season is here and the Colorado Rockies have very little left to play for. They’ll head out on the road this week, which is typically a bad thing for them, but frankly it can’t go a whole lot worse than this past week went for them at home. The club will start off the week with what could be an important series for the reverse standings against the Atlanta Braves before heading to Pittsburgh for three games with the Pirates, one of the top teams in the league. The goal there quite honestly should just be to not get completely embarrassed. Here’s a quick look at the rest of week 21.
