Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are certainly in the fold for the long haul, so the Colorado Rockies have cost certainty and an impressive pair of position player anchors. Ubaldo Jimenez leads a pitching staff that could be very good and particularly deep this season.

Their offense seemingly consists of Tulowitzki, Gonzalez and a whole lot of question marks. Defensively and on the mound, they are stronger than they have ever been before. This team could easily contend for the NL West title and make a run in the playoffs. Here are 10 things that need to go right along the way.
