Let’s talk about the future in Coors Field

I am now working on the Los Angeles Angels Top 20 prospects list for 2018. The next team in line is the Colorado Rockies, to be followed by the Chicago White Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays, San Francisco Giants, Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays, and finally the St. Louis Cardinals to finish the process.

Use this thread to discuss the Colorado Rockies organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to,

*****The Rockies finished at 87-75 in 2017, third place in the National League Western Division. What is a realistic expectation for 2018? Can they get past 90 wins, or will they fall back in the pack?

*****What do you think of Raimel Tapia and his debut? Can he be a .300+ hitter? Will he develop more power? Can he do both?

*****Rookie pitchers Antonio Senzatela, German Marquez, and Kyle Freeland all performed well in 2017. If you could have one of these guys for the next five years, who would you pick?

*****As always, please discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Rockies-oriented.
