What the national media doesn't seem to get

Like everybody around here, I have loved the national attention the Rockies have gotten over the last week or so. But it frustrates me a bit because the national media is acting like we've been mediocre until the last couple weeks and have come out of nowhere. When the Dodgers got off to their hot start in the first half, they were lauded as clear NL favorites and something of a juggernaut.

The Dodgers were 51-30 in their first 81 games, or half a season, on pace for a 102-60 full season record.

The Rockies have gone 55-26 in their last 81 games, also half a season, a pace for a 110-52 record for a full season.

This is not some three week or one month fluke type thing in 2007, the Rockies are one of the best teams in baseball and should be treated as such, instead they are treated as some sort of Cinderella story because they got off to a slow start.


It's just a bit insulting, IMO.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
