Want to know when the Colorado Rockies are playing next, and who their opponent is? Well, so do we! Unfortunately, the fixtures for the 2020 / 2021 MLB season are yet to be announced, but when they are SportsTips will have you covered with the details of some of the Colorado Rockies key games of the 2020 / 2021 season.
The Colorado Rockies are the second-youngest team in the MLB (along with the Miami Marlins) as they entered the league in 1993 as an expansion side. Their 23-year existence hasn’t entirely been filled with sunshine and daisies as they are yet to win the MLB World Series, and what is more disappointing is that they have only made it to that stage once in 2007, where they lost to the Boston Red Sox.
The Rockies though, didn’t take long to make it to the postseason as four days into the 1995 MLB season the Rockies signed Bill Swift who was a free agent and Larry Walker from the Montreal Expos, as both would have illustrious careers with the Rockies.
Swift would spend three seasons with the Rockies before returning to the Seattle Mariners in 1998, however, he did have a lasting impact with the side as he played 40 games, started 35, won 14 games, had an earned run average (ERA) of 16.68 (across his career at the Rockies), struck out 102 times and had 112 earned runs.
While Larry Walker would last 10 seasons at the Rockies (nine consecutively, as he returned during the 2004 season) and throughout his time in Colorado he played 1,134 games, had 4,076 at-bats, scored 892 runs while also scoring 258 home runs.
They were an integral part of the 1995 Rockies, who only entered the competition two years previously, played in their first-ever postseason after they finished second in the National League West with a 77-67 record.
That was enough to earn them a spot in the NLDS where they would meet the Atlanta Braves, however, the Braves got off to a flying start by claiming the first two games before the Rockies took out game 3, but the Braves only needed one more win and won game 4 and they progressed as the Rockies were knocked out.
The next few years would be torturous for the Rockies as they were the cellar-dwellers for nine years, however, in 1997 when the Rockies finished third in the National League West, Larry Walker became the National League MVP, however, by 2004 they traded him to the St Louis Cardinals.
With almost close to being at the bottom of the National League West, the Rockies then had somewhat of a golden generation. In the offseason, they signed LaTroy Hawkins, traded away Miguel Asencio for Willy Taveras, Taylor Buchholz, and Jason Hirsh, and also picked up Jason Jennings. Other players that they signed were Matt Herges and Steve Finley who were both free agents.
Despite losing their opening game to the Arizona Diamondbacks the Rockies finished the season in second place of their division winning the same amount of games as the Arizona Diamondbacks with 90 wins, but they also had one more loss than the leaders as well as a lower winning percentage.
However, that was enough for the Rockies to enter into the NLDS where they would meet the Philadelphia Phillies. They showed no signs of nerves as they won the series 3-0, it got even better for the Rockies as they knocked off their National League West leaders the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLCS winning the series 4-0, which meant they were in their first World Series.
Although the excitement of heading into their first World Series would soon be forgotten as the Boston Red Sox came out with composure winning the series 4-0. They didn’t have to wait long until another postseason appearance as two years later they made it to the NLDS after finishing the season in second palace winning 92 games, where they would meet the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Phillies took out game 1 of the series and there was hope for the Rockies as they took out game 2 to make it all square but any hope soon vanished as the Phillies would win the next two games to advance further in the postseason.
Ten years later, the Rockies returned but lost in the 2017 NLWC against the Diamondbacks. Things looked slightly more positive in 2018 when they finished second in the National League West after winning 91 regular-season games.
They defeated the Chicago Cubs in the NLWC and advanced through to the NLDS where they would meet the Milwaukee Brewers, and just like previous years, they couldn’t advance any further and they were defeated 3-0 in the series.
Since then the Rockies have finished fourth in the National League for the last two years. In 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the league began in July and played 60 games instead of the traditional 162 game season, which saw the Rockies winning only 26 games.

The Colorado Rockies haven’t made the World Series since 2007 so it probably comes as no surprise that they began the 2020 season with +15000 odds to make it to the World Series.
Despite losing their opening game against the Texas Rangers, the Rockies responded to win their next four games over the Rangers and the Oakland Athletics but their value moved up to +16000 on July 28.
Since then, the Rockies odds for a World Series were diminishing as their odds moved up and August wasn’t particularly kind to the Rockies despite winning their first four games of the month.
A loss to the Giants didn’t help their cause either, as by August 7 they were valued at +23333 and from there it just got harder and harder for the Rockies to even be in the same conversation when talking about the World Series.
By August 10, after their second defeat in a row, the Rockies were valued at +35000. The Rockies then responded with a win over the Diamondbacks, but in their next three games, they suffered back-to-back-to-back defeats and won once in their four games and by August 19 they were +46667.
Four days later after suffering a seven-game losing streak, the Rockies were valued at +62000. With the Rockies winning only one game in their last four games, the Rockies ended the season with a defeat to the San Diego Padres, and with that, they finished the season with a value of +187500.
The Rockies finished the 2020 season being ranked the 18th best team with an overall run line with a record of 29-31-0. However, when they were the home team they had the second-worst run line in the league ranked 29th in the MLB with a record of 11-19-0. They made a miraculous jump when they were the away side as they were in the top 10 as they were ranked fifth in the MLB with a record of 18-12-0.
When looking at the over / under, they were ranked 23rd in the overall over / under record with a 26-30-4 record. They just scraped into the top 20 of the MLB when it came to being the home team as they were ranked 18th with a 13-14-3 record. They were just outside the top 20, when they were the away side ranking 21st in the league with a record 13-16-1.
