Holy Schit, the Rockies are Too Legit to Quit

6/11/09                               Eight straight ain’t it great

                                                   It’s Hammer Time


MC-Hammer11.jpgFinally,… a chance to blog. Rockies win eight in a row and I’m just now writing about it.

I sincerely apoligize for my lack of entries. I’m back up to five days a week at work again and still spending any available time at the other house trying to get it ready to rent.

The Rockies are back at Coors Field tomorrow and I know a bunch of people who are more than ready. We wanna see some of that “Road Trip Magic” at home. I’m not bitch’n but the home crowd has witnessed it’s share of losses this season and we wanna personally watch the Rockies play like they’ve been playing.

I mentioned in my last entry that it was my 300th entry. The Rockpile Rant has had over 107,000 visits since October 2008 and over 1500 comments so far.

Thanks to all of you who read my ramblings about the Rockies and life. I’m digg’n what I do and I can’t wait until I’m able roll like I used to roll. Soon folks, very soon.

I’m not really a baseball draft guy. A fella only has so much time to devote to stuff and I tend to start to pay attention to players once they hit AA and AAA. I do wish them all luck though.

I have to give props to the Rockies and to Jim Tracy. The Rockies are looking and acting “Too Legit to Quit”.
Jim Tracy 6-11-09.jpg                                                   What was/is the spark?

Does part their success stem from the guilt of contributing to Clint Hurdle being fired?

Is it the fear of what Jim Tracy will do to players who don’t perform.

Or is it just out of respect for our new coach and each player wanting to show him they deserve the right to play at Coors?

Now that I think about it it’s probably best not to over analyze it. Let’s just roll with it. A win is a win and we desperately need them.

Maybe if the Rockies make it to ten in a row the rest of the country might start to take notice. There is a serious lack of recognition for this team and any of it’s accomplishments.

I’m a realist, so I can’t wait for the day the Rockies win their first World Series because that’s what it will take to get some respect. Well that and a few winning seasons :)

                                                        Ian Stewart

Stewart and Vinny.jpgThis guy is a future superstar and there is more to him than his .229 batting average suggests. Stewart had a lead-off home run in the 4th inning against the Brewers tonight.

Ian stewart 6-11-09.jpg How about Huston Street? The dude already has 12 saves this season. Remember back in Spring training when he was struggling just to get a spot?

                                      Nice job Huston, keep it up brotha.

That’s ok with me because if you happened to listen to Matt Holliday on the Jim Rome radio show today you wouldn’t have heard Matt say anything nice about Colorado.

Just remember Matt, the fans loved you here. It was you who stopped caring at the end.

               Rockies are 19-18 on the road. Seems odd but I’m not complaining.

                                                Props go out to Aaron Cook.
Aaron Cook 2-25-09.jpg Cook is now the first pitcher to complete 1,000 career innings in a Rockies uniform. Cook has only allowed two runs in his last 14 innings. Nice job Cookie!

     Rockies have now won eight in a row which ties a team record from you know when.

                      Friday is almost here, and then I’ll be there…You know where.

                                                          Go Rockies

                                  Show us why we should never stop believing..DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Green Floppy Hat.JPG
