Colorado Rockies Must Win Two-Thirds Of Remaining Games To Have Shot At Postseason


Having dropped four of five games following the All-Star Break, playoff hopes look dim for the NL West basement team.

The Colorado Rockies are 1-4 coming into the second half of the Major League Baseball regular season. They dropped three of their four games against the Milwaukee Brewers before losing their first homestand game against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday night (by a score of 2-1).

With an overall record of 44 wins and 54 losses, Colorado needs to play somewhere around .667 baseball in their remaining regular season matchups to have any chance of qualifying for the playoffs as a Wild Card team. 

If they go 43-21 in the 64 games they have left this year, they would end the season at 87-75 for a .537 season average. As it stands currently, the Rockies are on pace to end their season at the very bottom of the National League West division and with one of the worst records in Major League Baseball.

So far this year, only two teams have a regular season record in which they have won at least two-thirds of their games: the New York Yankees (66-32) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (64-31). The Houston Astros (64-34) and the New York Mets (60-37) are the only other two teams who have won at least 3 out of 5 games so far this season. 

In fact, Colorado online sportsbooks are already accepting “futures” bets on whether this year’s World Series will be a “Subway Series” between the two New York clubs.
