Saturday by Comparison: Adios August

For as disappointing as the August may seem to the Rockies and their fans, it should be noted that they still had the third best record in the division during the month, only a game behind Arizona, and half-game back of the Dodgers.

August Angst

Team W L Pct
Arizona Diamondbacks 14 12 .538
Los Angeles Dodgers 14 13 .519
Colorado Rockies 14 14 .500
San Francisco Giants 13 14 .481
San Diego Padres 12 15 .444

For all the frustration of August, the Rockies are 72-62, which equals the second best record in franchise history at the 134-game mark. The three other times they have been 72-62 or better they have been a wild-card.
