The Colorado Rockies were founded in 1993 as a part of baseball expansion that also founded the Marlins. The team competes in the National League West division and, again along with the Marlins, are one of two teams to never win a division title. Though they do have three post season appearances, all three were the result of earning a Wild Card spot.
Their sole appearance in a World Series, where they were defeated by the Red Sox in four games, came after winning 21 of their final 22 games during the 2007 season and securing a Wild Card berth.
The Colorado Rockies have had a number of losing seasons, as many expansion teams tend to do, and an overall losing record as a franchise. The team has had a National League MVP (Larry Walker, 1997), National League Rookie of the Year (Jason Jennings, 2002), and several Silver Slugger and Gold Glove award winners.
