"The Rockies being the only team in baseball to not make a trade at the deadline, a year after retaining Trevor Story and Jon Gray at the deadline, fits this. They like their guys. Why upset the apple cart? The Rockies will complete their 30th season this year, and they have never finished in first place. They and the Marlins are the only teams in AL/NL history that have never finished in first place. Maybe they don’t care."
