Worst 5-Year Win Percentages in Rockies History: Where Team’s Current Run Ranks

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

It’s been a comedy of errors along the Front Range when it comes to professional baseball management, with the Rockies muddling through another failed season on Colorado sportsbooks and extending the club’s postseason hiatus to six years in the process.  

With Bud Black’s bunch sitting at 25-46 (.352) and dead last in the five-team NL West, it’s worth pondering where the franchise’s last five full seasons (not including the 2020 COVID year) rank when it comes to diamond futility.  

Utilizing Baseball-Reference.com, we found that the Rockies’ .407 win percentage between 2019 and 2024 ranks as the worst five-season composite in club history, underscoring just how poor Colorado’s play has been in recent years.  

With that in mind, BetColorado.com broke down the full list of the best (or worst) five year stretches in the team’s 32-season run in Denver, giving fans a bit of context as to just how bad the team’s play has been of late. 

When things do eventually turn around, BetColorado is your go-to source for Rockies odds.

Where Current Rockies Rank in Franchise History

Given the Rockies expansion status, you’d expect their worst days to be the ones dating around the team’s start in 1993, though that’s far from the case, as the last five years have seen a win percentage (.407) that blows the next worst stretch (1998-2002, at .465) out of the water. The last five years have seen the first 100-loss season in franchise history (59-103 in 2023) and campaigns with 94 losses (2022), 87 losses (2021) and 91 losses (2019), making the last five full seasons a truly abysmal stretch for baseball in Colorado.  

Overall, Colorado’s “best” days were between 1993-1997, when the club had a five-year win percentage of .485, while the stretches between 2009 and 2013 and again between 2014-2018 saw combined five-season win percentages was .477 each.  

Throw in the team’s .465 win percentage between 1998 and 2002 and the .462 total between 2004 and 2008 and you have the full scope of five-year increments in franchise history, giving greater perspective as to just how poorly the Rockies have played in recent years.  

Looking forward, at least the Rockies can count on having the third pick in next month’s MLB Draft, which could land the club a franchise-altering player that has the potential to drag Colorado back to respectability after a half-decade of baseball irrelevance.
