There's always one surprise team crashing Major League Baseball's October playoff party, and the unsung, white-hot Colorado Rockies are unquestionably that club in 2007. The Rockies have played inspired baseball over the last month of the season to get to the National League Championship Series for the first time in franchise history.
After a three-game sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL Division Series that followed a dramatic one-game tie-breaker Wild Card win over the San Diego Padres, the Rockies are set to travel to Phoenix to take on their NL West division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, in the NLCS that starts Thursday night. A win there and an eventual World Series parade through downtown Denver is what they want.
That's why it's fitting that Daughtry's "What I Want" is our featured song for the Rockies' NLCS music video preview.
Will Colorado's main man and MVP candidate, Matt Holliday, continue to pound the baseball like he did throughout the season and in the NLDS rout of the Phillies?
How many NLCS games will young ace Jeff Francis make a statement in?
Will unlikely heroes such as Kaz Matsui, Josh Fogg, Manny Corpas and Ubaldo Jimenez continue to step up and play like postseason veterans?
Or will it be elder statesman Todd Helton carrying the club on his shoulders after year after frustrating year sitting at home watching the playoffs on TV?
We'll find out when the Rockies and D-backs meet starting Thursday night at Chase Field, so check back right here for more music video highlights of the NLCS.
