    A team has never won the division being 15 1/2 games behind

    Could the Rockies be the first team ever to accomplish this feat?

    I think they will run out of gas

    Or maybe I should say... I "hope" they run out of gas

    GO BRAVES!

    I hope so. This team reminds me of the 2007 team. That team though got hot in the last month of season and playoffs. If this team can keep this up and be consistently this good I think this team maybe better. If only we had Jeff Francis this year. I just love how unselfish this team is. I wish a certain football team in Denver played the same way.

    I hope not. If they do it, people will forget about the Twins in 2006, who were down 13? at the all star break and came back to win the division on the last day of the season.

    I heard something that made a lot of sense yesterday.

    2007 was a good summer. 2009 is a good team.

    I knew it would happen. Rockies win a couple of games to get up 4 in wildcard and 2 games of division. The media gives us all kinds of love and attention and then the team ****** it right down their leg. After tomorrow's loss we will be tied for the wildcard.

    I don't know how they'd forget if they'd never cared enough to remember in the first place.

    I think Alaskaguy jinxed the team. They're 0-5 since he posed the question.
