It occurs to me that if the Padres lose the wild-card tiebreaker game in Denver on Monday, their collapse will be a pretty big one, too. Oh, nothing like the Mets’ collapse, but the Padres led either the division or the wild card for much of the season, albeit never by a wide margin.
For every collapse there is a comeback, and the Rockies’ comeback is almost as great as the Phillies.’ On 12 Sept., the Phillies were 7 games out. The Rockies were five games out in the wild card race on the 17th. The Phillies are in, while the Rockies, who have won 13 of their last 14 games, still need to win an “overhang game” against the Padres.
The Rockies are 50-31 at home this year. Huge advantage, Colorado.
