MLB Standings Update: Rockies In Familiar Territory By Looking Up At Giants In NL West

More than a month and a half into the MLB season, are we seeing who the Colorado Rockies are? After the first two-plus weeks of the season, the Rockies stood 12-3 on April 17, up four games in the NL West. They had just won seven of eight games on the road and returned home to take a series from the Cubs, 2-1.

Ubaldo Jimenez was ready to return from the disabled list, hopefully his normal self. But that early season momentum hit a brick wall. Jimenez has looked lost in the woods, prompting questions over his long-term future (but, you know, let's just judge that on a handful of starts). The offense, until the last series with the Padres, has struggled to put runners across home plate. And the bullpen will likely need some retouching done to it, likely promoting Rex Brother and Matt Daley at some point at the expense of Franklin Morales and Felipe Paulino.

More or less, that leaves the Rockies are 20-18 heading into a two-game home series with the San Francisco Giants. Oddly enough, the Rockies are 9-10 at Coors Field this season. They dropped two of three to the Giants there in mid-April and will now need to contend with a team that has won seven of its last eight games (Sunday's game was postponed).

It's going to be a long summer in the NL West, but hopefully an exciting one as well.

Here is the complete NL West standings:
