The Colorado Rockies joined MLB in 1993 as an expansion franchise.

This was a false dawn for the franchise as they struggled for the next decade and finished no higher than third in the National League West Division. The Rockies returned to the post season in 2007 and made a surprise run to the World Series where they were defeated by the Boston Red Sox. Despite a couple of strong seasons the Rockies have never won their division title and the side has gone backwards in recent seasons.
Colorado Rockies Offensive Star: Carlos Gonzalez
Carlos Gonzalez was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2002 but never played in the Majors for the franchise. He was traded to the Oakland Athletics in 2008 before joining the Colorado Rockies in 2009. The outfielder had a slow start to his stint at the Rockies but exploded towards the end of the season. Gonzalez became an elite player during the 2010 season; finishing the year as the National League Batting Champion and was in the discussion to win the National League MVP award. Gonzalez has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons but is still one of the most dangerous players in all of MLB and the clear superstar on the Rockies roster.

Jeff Francis was selected with the ninth overall pick of the 2002 MLB draft by the Colorado Rockies. In 2004 he was named Minor League Player of the Year by Baseball America and was called up to the Majors. Francis became the number pitcher for the Rockies and his excellent form in 2007 was one of the catalysts for the teams surprising World Series run. Since 2008, Francis’s career has been plagued by injuries. He left the Rockies in 2011 but returned last season. The Rockies don’t have much depth in the bullpen and the pressure will be on the veteran to perform in 2013.
