We’re down to just two weeks left in the regular season, and seven of the Colorado Rockies’ 13 remaining games will be played this week. Not only that, rookie Jon Gray’s will more than likely make his final start (or two) of the season this week as well. We’re also still waiting for Nolan Arenado to hit his 40th home run of the season, something that hopefully will happen this week. In the reverse standings (standings in order from worst to first), the Rockies currently sit in a tie for third place with the Milwaukee Brewers and are a half of a game ahead of the Cincinnati Reds, Miami Marlins, and Oakland Athletics. Wins are good for obvious reasons, but losses right now could also be viewed as good things, as they would help the club to have a higher draft pick. Let’s quickly look ahead to the rest of week 25.
