The Colorado Rockies host the Miami Marlins today in what could be the ugliest game of the day thanks to how badly these teams look. The Marlins are barely hanging onto fourth place in the NL East and are a dozen games back from the New York Mets. The Marlins will continue to lose ground in that race if they keep losing two or three games for every win they eke out. 

The Rockies aren’t doing much better out West where they have fallen into fifth place in the NL West. I will say that Colorado is the best fifth-place team in the league and could finish with a winning record and never leave the basement of the NL West.

The division is just that good. But Colorado is fading and has been awful since the start of May. It’s unlikely the Rockies finish above .500 the way things are going.

Marlins vs. Rockies Prediction and Pick

This game would be a lot easier to work out if at least one team had a competent pitcher starting in it. Predictably, with teams struggling this much, that is not the case. Antonio Senzatela and Trevor Rogers will battle it out on the mound and I am not excited about either of these two guys. 

Let’s start at the bottom with Rogers and work our way up. Rogers enters this game at 2-5 with a 5.23 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. He had a few nice games here and there but overall has been a white-hot dumpster fire. In nine starts, he's given up five or more runs three times. Rogers lost back-to-back games against the Braves over the last two weeks as well. He gave up eight runs in nine innings during those starts. 

Senzatela has also seen more downs than ups this year and walks onto the field today with a 4.55 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 29 ⅔ innings. He lasted just two innings in his previous start due to hurting his back and looks to make a comeback after spending two weeks on the IL. He wasn’t doing well before his injury with a 6.30 ERA in May and I have no reason to assume that 15 days on the shelf will do anything to alleviate that. 

These two jokers at Coors Field should combine for a lot of fireworks in the skies over Denver.

Pick: OVER
