Rock Bottom? Colorado Rockies lose another gut wrencher, exposing huge issues

Rockies fans want the old Rex Brothers back.Forget it, pack it in, the Colorado Rockies are done.Too harsh? Prove me wrong. I'd love to see someone give a solid reason as to why this Rockies team has a fighting chance to crawl back into the race.
