It is tough to be a Rockies fan. The team is 59-70, 8 games out with 33 left to play. When they went 3-7 on a homestand a couple of weeks ago, to some pretty bad teams, most fans were ready to give up on them and start concentrating on football. Then, they go on a road trip to SoCal, never a good place for them, and almost sweep, ending up 5-1 after a one run loss in the final game. Now fans are thinking “Streak!” again and are expecting the Rockies to win nearly all of their remaining games and sweep into the World Series for the second year in a row.
No one really believes it can happen again, but the kind of fans the Rockies have built over the years with their bizarre handling of the team don’t know how to behave anymore.
