As Lloyd Christmas said in the immortal classic “Dumb and Dumber,” “So you’re telling me there’s a chance….”
The baseball analysis site Fangraphs has put out its annual baseball playoff projections and it gives the Colorado Rockies a 0.1% chance of making the playoffs this year.
Before you get depressed, the Rockies outdo the Baltimore Orioles who have a 0.0% chance of post-season action.
The Dodgers, in case anyone is still interested, have the best odds at making the playoffs in the National League West with a 96.7% chance while the Padres are next in line sporting 92.9% odds.
Fans reacted predictably on Twitter.
“The Rockies odds to make the playoffs are way too high,” tweeted one baseball critic.
Another said the Rockies — if they tried hard enough — could go winless.
“The Rockies are paying the Cards $50 million to play Nolan Arenado because if he stayed in Colorado they might win games. This is a team dedicated not only to no playoffs but to no wins. 0-162. Think big!”, Edward Morris said.
While yet another down-in-the-dumps Rockies observer posted a GIF showing “live footage of the Rockies front office trying to compete”
