No Breathing

Six games left, three in Los Angeles against the Dodgers and three at Coors against Arizona. Sure, if the Rockies can finish the year 14-0... they'll have done that, and who knows what else will happen. Anyway, no breathing until they're mathematically eliminated. I see you over there. Quit it.

And thus, I am torn. I want to go buy Division Series tickets at the dugout store, but I don't want to jinx it.

Holding Breath...

I'm pulling for you, Mark. I say this as a Dodger fan whose mood has changed significantly in the past month.

Good luck.

Holding breath and offering link to BP article on Rockies ...

"Colorado's eight-game win streak has propelled the team into contention and created one of the most positive seasons in the organization's existence. One of the accompanying narratives is that they are learning how to win in Coors Field. Another is the declining park factor in Colorado has allowed for a more stable pitching staff. While there is some truth to these, for me the Rockies are more than the product of an evolving ballpark-related dynamic. Rather, they are a perfect case study in proper player development."
