Well, the last week of the season is finally here. It hasn’t been a fun one, but the Rockies are at least guaranteed to finish no worse than they did in 2014! Carlos Gonzalez will look to hit his 40th home run this week and Nolan Arenado needs two doubles to give him a 40 home run and 40 double season. After this week, we’ll have an interesting and potentially tumultuous offseason to look forward to. Here’s a look ahead to the final six games of the 2015 season.
