About Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies
The Arizona Diamondbacks (commonly referred to as the D-Backs) and the Colorado Rockies are both members of the NL West Division in the MLB. Both teams also happen to be the newest entries into the division with the D-Backs joining as an expansion team in 1998 and the Rockies in 1993. Sharing the same division with the likes of the Dodgers and the Giants has historically meant that these two teams haven’t ranked at the top of their division. However, this season might change that. Both teams are off to a spectacular start in the 2017-2018 season with new managers and promising line-ups. How will things go when these two face-off against one another?
