Colorado Rockies, NL Pennant Winners

Wow is the best word I can think of to describe the Rockies over the past 22 games in which they have went 21-1 and swept both post season series. One thing that kind of makes this whole thing a little crazier, is to think that the Rockies almost lost the sudden death, 1 game playoff with the Padres which took them 13 innings to win. In that game against the Padres, the Rockies found themselves down 8-6 in the 13th inning and came back to beat the Padres by putting up 3 in the home half of the inning against Trevor Hoffman.

Exactly 1 month ago today the incredible streak began. On September 15th, after losing 3 straight games the Rockies found themselves 4 1/2 games back in the Wild Card behind the Padres. 4 1/2 games back with 14 to go and the Rockies got their stuff together and went crazy. Since that time, the Rockies have lost 1 game. 1 Game in a month. Amazing. Really amazing.

I won't even lie and say that I'm anything close to a Rockies fan, but they are an easy team to root for, so root for them I will.
