In previous seasons, the Rockies have started their official "push for contention" on road trips - often times, in late-May/early-June. It seems as if everything is working against the Rockies this time around, but maybe they'll catch a break - in this case, the break could be that the Rox will miss Clayton Kershaw in the opening series of the trip. However, Billingsley is no slouch either, but the Rockies have experienced success against him already in 2011.

Will this be the beginning of a patented Colorado surge, or will the same old Rockies offense (and all-around subpar play, regardless of the venue) show up and possibly cost the team a shot at the postseason this early in the season? This series will tell us one way or the other. It's time to finally take a series at Dodger Stadium (without it ending disastrously, at least). L.A. is a weak team that is very beatable, and the Rockies need to jump on them.
