The Colorado Rockies just finished an absolutely brutal California road trip which saw them get swept out of San Francisco and Los Angeles before returning home with their tail between their legs for an eight-game homestand. The Rockies were outscored 29-11 on the trip and have fallen to a major league-worst 3-10 record. This is one of the worst starts in team history and playing the Dodgers seven times in the first 13 games hasn’t helped anyone feel better.
But hey, this is the Dodgers we’re talking about, right? They won the World Series in 2020 and have done nothing to create any doubt that they should be favorites again in 2021.
