Krieger: Rockies in rare role as front-runner - The Denver Post
Dave Krieger writes that the Rockies are in unfamiliar territory--actually having others chase after them. The one thing I disagree on with him is his position on how the Rockies arrive at the playoffs: Win the division or win the wild card? He's right that there isn't much difference there, but the Rockies still haven't won an NL West championship. Win one and then there won't be much of a difference in how to arrive at the playoffs.

The Rockies' postseason odds are now just under 92% at BP.

At 11 ET/9 MT, RockiesMagicNumber will have Part II of his interview with Marc Gustafson. Part I can be found here.
