The Rockies are one of the newest MLB teams having been established in 1993. They currently play in the National League West division and call Coors Field home. In 2007, the Rockies won 21 of their final 22 games to win the National League Pennant, their only trophy to date. They are one of only two franchises to have never won a division title, the other being fellow newcomers Miami Marlins. During the Rockies’ excellent 2007 campaign, they reached the World Series, but were swept aside in four games by the Red Sox of the American League.
The past five years have seen the Rockies post losing seasons, and three of those five seasons ended with the Rockies rock bottom of the NL West.
2015 was one such year where a fifth place NL West place was endured; the Rockies also finished 27th in the MLB overall thanks to losing 94 of their 162 regular season fixtures.
Simulations and expert opinion suggests the Rockies should improve during 2016, although only by a handful of wins, but that could be enough to see them climb one spot to fourth, still a long way from the dizzy heights of winning a pennant.
