Arizona sure had their chance to put away the Western Division in the NL, but squandered an opportunity when the Dodgers lost eight straight back at the end of August, and the beginning of September. But a team going 11-19 down the stretch, has no business or right to be in the playoffs. So now that it is officially over, expect the D-Backs to become an even worse team. They have now dropped three straight as the Dodgers clinching became more of a formality, than a serious pursuit from the D-Backs. The Rockies are coming fresh off a sweep of the Giants and playing well - winners of seven of their last 10. It is likely the D-Backs field a lot of minor leaguers and utility players in this one as the chase is over, so I'll back the Rockies who are playing hard and playing well.
