|Dan O'Dowd is out of ideas for the Rockies.|
The only question that remains to be asked is, do the Colorado Rockies actually have to play out the final two months of their season? The unfortunate answer to that is "yes."
Sorry to be so negative about a team that is just eight games back of first place in the National League West. Maybe there are positives to talk about. Maybe it is time to re-focus and be reminded that this was a team that lost 98 games a year ago. Maybe it is time to reset expectations and be figure that this team is going to finish with a much better record than the 2012 season brought them.
That, however, is the easy way out. In most cases, in a franchise in rebuilding mode, that is exactly what fans would be talking about. The talk would focus around the core of the team getting better and the young players around them continuing to figure out the game at the big league level.
