    2017 Colorado Rockies

    Is anyone else getting excited for this season? I think this is the first time I've been really excited about Rockies Baseball since 2008. I don't follow baseball really closely, but it seems like the Rockies have been more active this off-season than I remember them ever being.

    I would love to hear some baseball junkies viewpoint on this upcoming season and what their expectations are!
    Mark my words, Trevor Siemian will be much improved after this offseason and will remain the Broncos QB1 in 2017. - Dec '16

    I'm finding myself excited in the hopes that this season can show more promise than the last ten. While the Rockies have been active this off season (new manager, Ian Desmond, that pitcher from KC; don't recall his name), I still don't think they have done enough to finish better than third in the division. Their starting five is still not solidified and will continue to struggle at home.
    I would absolutely love to be wrong, however. Just ready to get the season started and see where they are.

    This is the year they start to turn it around. They're making better decisions and don't seem to be accepting bottom feeder status like they have the past few years.

    I hope so. But first year manager I still have low expectations starting out.

    I hear you, but I think Bud Black is one of the better managers out there and the Rockies were fortunate to land him. Looking forward to the next couple of seasons.

    Right I didn't mean first year manager for his career. Just meant first year with us don't expect miracles.

    I'm actually really excited. I was looking at the projected line up and we are loaded 1-7. They have Story and Dahl batting 6 and 7.

    I know I know. Our offense is never the problem but our starters are not terrible either. As long as our bullpen holds there own somehow then I just don't see how we can't compete.

    I'll keep my expectations low though all the way through June. We all know how the Rox likes to teas us.
