Rockies fans look at the month of May as a test. Instead of starting the season off from behind and playing catch up the Rockies changed things up this season. We started off with a bang, and now it seems were out of ammo and just chuck’n water balloons.

Rantics in attendance today were, Robert, Dan, Emily, Amy, Jersey Geoff and Mike The Rox Addict.

Those of us who really like Ubaldo can feel his pain. I need to see the old “Nasty Fasty” back in action.

A few game shots for you.

We did get to see Bruce Billings Major League Debut. 

Here’s his first pitch. He threw for two innings. His ERA is now 4.5

For me the highlight of this game was seeing Eric Young Jr back.

Here’s another familiar face. Holliday didn’t even get to take a swing.

Robert showed up for the game today. Was good to see him. Robert has reduced the number of games he’s attending. He’s not happy with the Rockies organization at the moment. If you’ve got some time ask him he’ll tell you about it.

Mike the Rox Addict and I hung out beside the ROOT SPORTS desk post-game to show our support despite this third  loss at home to the D-Backs of all teams. You can see the final embarassing final score in the background.

Something’s wrong. The Rockies don’t feel like the Rockies to me. I’ll blame part of it on the lack of fan love they’ve been showing.

Remember fellas the same fans you diss pre-game are the same ones showing up supporting this half-as-sed team as we painfully watch you try and get it together.

Respect your fans and they’ll always support you and always remember where you came from.

Colorado Springs is only an  hour away :)

Rockies fan but not standing nearly as tall as I used to.
