The Rockies had a 71-91 record in 2019, a 26-34 record in 2020 (equivalent to 71-91 in a 162 game schedule), and are on pace to go 73-89 in 2021. The team, however, lacks a true sense of direction going forward.
After all, the Rockies farm system was ranked in the bottom third of all farm systems by every reputable outlet and, often, ranked in the bottom five entering this season.
