Not that long ago the Rox were lingering around .500 and sort of in the race.
Now that dream has faded and they are getting primed for next year. They can still bludgeon teams from time to time especially if Nolan Arenado is hot.
He is currently leading the Majors in RBIs which would be a feather in the cap for the young slugger.
They also still have Carlos Gonzalez, one of four Rockies with 20 or more homers. Unfortunately rookie Trevor Storey is still out.
Jeff Hoffman was a key piece in the Tulo deal last summer.
He is a big arm with big potential and this will be just his second MLB start – the first was not good but it was against the Cubs so it is too early to tell.
Washington is a good team but their lineup is not nearly as challenging as Chicago’s and maybe he is more composed in his second start.
The Rockies bullpen is not going to offer a ton of support unfortunately.
The Nats have been getting beaten up by the rival Orioles of late but their lead in the NL East is very secure.
Also, I feel like I am missing something but they have crept into the top ten in scoring, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact that Bryce Harper has been nothing special this season. Daniel Murphy has been a true stud.
He is second in the NL in RBIs. Rookie Trea Turner has provided a spark with his hitting and speed.
Gio Gonzalez is not having a good season but he still might be the best fourth starter around. He takes his turn and gives the Nats a chance to win nearly every time out and can still spin the occasional gem.
The peripherals suggest his dominance is as good as ever even though his ERA is up. Snatching Mark Melancon from Pittsburgh has proved to be good.
He has yet to blow a save and has given up just 1 run in 10 appearances.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
I am always a fan of the Rockies and their ability to thump. They should be the underdogs here and I see them as a very nice value on the road. Washington is public and in first place and with a way more established pitcher.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Colorado ML
I am not expecting Hoffman to dominate, just to settle down and given his offense a chance to be the difference maker that it can be. I think you can probably get something like +150 too. Maybe more.
