The Colorado Rockies endured the worst season in their 20-year history and lost a franchise-record 98 games. They didn’t enter the season with realistic hopes of contending after 89 losses in 2011 but expected to improve and finish with a record around .500. Instead, they regressed badly. The silver lining in this lost season was that a host of rookies and players with limited experience had the opportunity to play a lot due to a slew of injuries.
