How to watch MLB: Rockies Vs. Athletics online in the U.S.
This year is an odd one for baseball, with coronavirus-related delays causing the MLB to shorten the season from 162 games to just 60. If baseball seasons are usually marathons, 2020 will be a sprint, and it’s likely that this faster tempo will shape the strategies and performances of the various teams in each division. Early victories will be important for establishing momentum that will hopefully be enough to carry teams through the short season and into the playoffs.
Last season, the Rockies failed to make it to the postseason, while the Athletics were eliminated when they lost the 2019 American League Wild Card Game play-in to the Tampa Bay Rays. Colorado has only made it to the World Series one time in the team’s short history (the Rockies were formed as an expansion team in 1993), making them the clear underdog here. Nonetheless, having won four of their five games so far, the Rockies are off to a very strong start this year and the short 2020 season could have some surprising and unpredictable outcomes in store for players and fans.
