Nolan’s ill-advised slide precipitated an historic slide for the Rockies

Colin D. | June 29, 2014

“Since Nolan Arenado broke his finger the Rockies have won nine games and lost 24”

Read more …

It is news to nobody that the 2014 Colorado Rockies have been riddled with injuries. The lineups that will trot out today to face the Brewers will feature three players who started for the club early in the season: Tulo, Morneau and Blackmon. Aside from those three and “ace” Jorge De La Rosa, today’s Rox will look a lot like the Sky Sox.

Injuries have certainly contributed to the Rockies’ downfall this season and they are one of several reasons that the team will be missing from the MLB post-season once again. The way the Rockies have been playing they might actually end up losing more games this season than they have in either of the past two disastrous ones.

There was a time not that terribly long ago when the 2014 season had much promise. The Rockies were rock solid right up through the month of May. In May they were 10-8 heading into the final game of their home series with the Giants. It was to be the rubber match in a series that was tied at one game apiece but it was suspended due to rain in the middle innings. The following day, on May 23rd, the Rockies began a road series against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field. Colorado lost that series opener and would go on to drop six of their next eight games to close out the month. It wasn’t dropping that May 23rd game, however, that was a harbinger of bad things to come.  

It was in that series opener with the Braves, which the Rockies lost 2-3, that Nolan Arenado broke his finger sliding head-first into second base.

Colorado’s record was 26-22 on May 23rd. The Rockies were in second place, four games back behind the Giants in the NL West. Now, one month later, their record is 35-46 and they are third place, eleven wins behind both the Dodgers and the Giants.

Since Nolan Arenado broke his finger the Rockies have won nine games and lost 24.

That slide into second precipitated an historic slide for the Colorado Rockies. Since it happened the Rox have been embroiled in an absolute month from hell. a lot of things have gone wrong for the purple and black this season but it’s not hard to identify which bad break started them down the nasty path that they are on now. It was the break to Nolan’s finger, one sustained on an ill-advised slide into second on May 23rd in Atlanta.
