DENVER -- On the upper wall of the northeast corner of the Rockies' clubhouse begins an interesting design that encircles the entire clubhouse.
Before the season began, numbers 1-100 were painted in purple on white panels. On Tuesday, the first four panels were covered in purple and in white were the numbers 0, 19, 28 and 24 -- the jersey numbers, respectively, of relief pitcher Adam Ottavino, outfielder Charlie Blackmon, third baseman Nolan Arenado and pitcher Jordan Lyles.
After each victory, players get together.
It serves to build motivation and high expectations. Room for 100 wins.
"This year, when I first got to Denver, that's when I found out we were doing it, and it's pretty cool," said Arenado, who earned his spot with a two-homer game against the D-backs in a 9-4 victory on Saturday. "I guess it's nice to see us doing something together. We mess around a little bit after the game."
