The Rockies prefer ...If the Rockies win the NL wild card, they might prefer to play the Cardinals rather than the Phillies. The Cardinals lack a left-hander in their rotation, while the Phillies' two best starters, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels, are left-handed. The Rockies' left-right splits are fairly even their .787 OPS against righties ranks first in the NL while their .770 OPS against lefties ranks fourth. Still, they're 24-24 in games started by lefties, 50-41 in games started by righties. The Dodgers would appear to match up better against the Phillies their .806 OPS against lefties is the highest in the NL, while their .750 OPS against righties ranks seventh.
