Week 24 is here, and after this there will only be two weeks remaining in the regular season. It hasn’t been a fun season for the Colorado Rockies, but in spite of that, the end of the season never fails in making me a little bit sad. The Rockies will be back in the division this week and we’ve got a doozy of a pitching match-up on Monday night. Make sure to pry your eyes away from Monday Night Football for a while to check it out. If things go well, we may even get to see Nolan Arenado and/or Carlos Gonzalez hit their 40th home runs of the season! Here’s a quick look ahead to week 24.
