Happy Fathers Day, Call your dad



 My Fathers day present from Mylee  <————



Rockies win the series against the White Sox.

 Fuentes loads the bases in the ninth with two out.

 Holliday avoids a collision to make an awesome catch to win this 5-3.

Thats four straight series we’ve won !!

Ubaldo Jimenez will be the starting pitcher for tomorrow’s game. At 1-6 he needs this win. We need this win. Time for a serious win streak going into the All-Star Break.

 I’ve see this team starting to solidify in the last couple of weeks. Even the pitching. 

                       ’s all up to you..lead the way, amigo.

DadFD.jpg                                                            My Pops.

                           Thanks for always being there to give me a second chance.

                           To those of you who are Fathers …Enjoy your special Day

                                                        You deserve it !!

Atkins is back with a hell of a whack



Garret_Atkins12.jpgGarrett wastes no time letting everyone know that he’s back at full strength.

Garrett blew us all away by scoring the winning run in the 9th and defeating the Giants 1-0.

UIbaldo Jimenez went toe to toe with Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum for  seven scoreless innings.

Ubaldo is amazing to watch when he is on his game, wicked fastball.

Sucks Ubaldo had such a bad start this year.

Lets hope these kind of performances from him are the norm for the rest of the season.   

Funny how you can score ten runs the day before and squeak by with a one run win the next day..You gotta love baseball, no predictability. Watching this team now you can see the wheels in motion. No predictions here, I’m just making an observation, or wishful thinking aloud. 

Things are clicking..I feel it

Tulowitzki begins his rehab assignment with the Modesto They’re the the Rockies single A team. That’s got to suck for Tulo. “Hey Tulo, what team do you play for”, Tulo responding “um, I play with the nuts”.

Get better quick dude. Thats embarassing. 


Hunter’s baseball team lost yesterday. He was able to play center field and 2nd base. He didn’t get a chance to bat this time. None of the kids on his team even got a hit.

Poor Hunter, he kept saying if he just could have gotten a chance to bat he’d have got a hit. Nine year olds don’t really understand how a rotation works and how coaches have to be fair to everyone. He just knows he doesn’t like to lose and he hates sitting on the bench.

My little man was visibly upset the whole evening.

I love his dedication…were still working on being a good loser.

Rockies play at 1pm today. Wish I could be there.

QuitComplainingAboutYourJob.jpg      GOOD NEWS !

 I interviewed for another job within my company yesterday and i got it!!

 It is a lot closer drive and will save me about an hour a day.

     Go Rockies…D

The Beermakers in the House of Coors tonight




It’s up to you Ubaldo.

Torrealba got this streak in motion with that motivating bench brawl.

Aaron Cook got us the second win.

 You need to step up tonight, let go of the previous losses and make new tonight.

You got the skills man.

Relax, the pressure of a repeat of last year is out the door.

 Figure it out Ubaldo.

Show us what you got.

Welcome Rockies new pitcher, left handed, Christian Friedrich from Eastern Kentucky.

 He was the 25th pick in the first round.

His best pitch is a curveball.

 Lets hope he can help an ailing Rockies pitching crew. 







 Rockies play the Brewers today and have currently won two games in a row.

 The game tonight is at 7:05 and I’ll be there early for BP. I

 have a good feeling about tonight.

Torrealba got a three game suspension for the brawl the other night and Kemp got four games.

 I’m ok with that ruling…D

A win without a fight , C’mon Friday night


Yep, on the bottom looking up. I can’t say it’s unfamiliar territory, in fact you might even call it comfortable.

Naa, screw that it’s not comfortable, I’m not sure what to call it. But what ever “It” is, “It” sucks.

I hate losing. I bet you didn’t know that about me. I thought it strange all this World Series hoopla last year.

Fun at the time, but now as I look back it seemed premature and out of place.

SUPERSTITION.jpg I’m not saying we didn’t earn the right to be in the World Series because we damn sure did. The problem was it all happened too fast. 

You’d have to be Stevie Wonder not to have seen it during the World Series and you can most certainly see it  now.

We’re not the same team this season. I know, it sucks.

The only semi-bright light is that when your in last place, peoples expectations seem to drop.

 The catch being, the Rockies made it to the World Series last season and the fans expectations of this team this season are extremely high.  

Thumbnail image for Wishful thinking 7-5.JPGIt takes a lot less effort to critique than to support. Now is when you find out who the true fans are.

I’ll be there, cheering on my team, taking pictures, snagging balls and having fun. 

I know a few other people who will be there regardless.

 The Rockies took the series against the Dodgers today with a final score of 2-1.

jeff baker.jpg

Jeff Baker hit the homer that scored the Rockies two runs. 

Aaron Cooks pitching looked consistant, thats good. We needed to see that after his Mets loss last series. Looks like Ubaldo Jimenez will be pitching on Friday.

                                              Lets make it three wins in a row .

                                                        Go Rockies…D

When it rains it pours, Rockies lose 7-4


butt whoopin.jpgI’m not sure what I expected of the Rockies in Game two vs the Phillies. I know the twenty run old fashioned butt whoopin they bent over for the night before didn’t set well with them or this Rockies fan.

Maybe I expected them to come out fresh and ready to strike back. Putting the game last night behind them.

Thumbnail image for T1_1011_ubaldo.jpgMaybe I expected Ubaldo Jimenez to take ownership of that mound and control this game. Not have his worst outing of the year. 

He’s now 1 and 10 in his starts.

Maybe, I wanted the Rockies the show the Phillies in Philidelphia that the magical run last year wasn’t a fluke,  and …..well none of that happened.

Rockies lose two straight to the Phillies with a final score of 7-4. 

Blame it on the rain..You know when it rains it freggin pours.






Hillary Thumbs up-1.JPG 

 On a positive note…..Garrett Atkins is back in the lineup.

He went 1 for 5, and finished pain free.   

    Welcome back Garrett!!




 Seth Smith went 3 for 5, and continues to show us why he doesn’t work in Colorado Springs anymore.

Keep it up Seth,..carve your niche while you have the opportunity




<—-Remember the pinball machine Slugfest?

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I  NEED..A Colorado Rockies, bottom of the 9th two out slugfest.

You Know What I’m Talking About !!

Everything’s fine when you get Ubaldo to sign


Perfect Beach.jpgWhat a perfect day.

Every once in a while you have one of those days where the planets align and everything just goes your way.

Today was my day. I’m going to every game this week except for Sunday.

I figured there would be batting practice today since neither team had a late game yesterday.

I arrived early and was the first person in front of the Rockpile gate. I would have been the first through the gate except for a young boy who didn’t have a backpack managed to sneak in before me.

 No worries, I’m ok with that.

Anyways, I was also the first to arrive at the left field pavilion and as luck would have it I was correct. Both teams were on the field and Rockies were full into their batting practice.

I brought a baseball with me that I had snagged at batting practice a few games back. I was hoping to get that ball signed because I didn’t have any more of the Rockies emblem balls that I had been using up to that point.

On the field standing directly in front of me were Manny Corpas, Willy Taveras, and Ubaldo Jimenez.

I waited for the perfect opportunity to ask Manny for his autograph because I had seen him sign from that exact spot before. He looked at me and shrugged his shoulders at me like he couldn’t do it.

That’s not true.

The players do sign autographs from that spot, I’ve seen it before.

Your still ok in my books Manny, but you need to spread some cheer. Think back to when you were a kid.   

Luckily, I saw Ubaldo coming over to get a ball that had hit the wall and a guy in row one hit him up for an autograph. ubaldojimenez.jpg


He signed it and then I made my move.

 Before he turned around I said “Ubaldo will you please sign my ball”, and to my surprise he motioned for me to throw the ball to him.

 I threw it right to him and then tossed him my pen. He signed it, and threw back the ball and my pen.


 Ubaldo, THANK YOU man!

You really made a fans day

Manny..take some notes here.


JimenezAuto.JPG  So now I’m all hyped up. 


I’m standing in the pavilion not even two  minutes and I hear a loud CRACK.

 I looked up to see a ball heading directly for me. I didn’t even have to move.

 I started to get the feeling   of people surrounding me.

I stood on my toes, leaned over, reached out and


The ball landed perfectly in my glove.


That was the second batting practice ball I’ve straight up caught

Ok now I’m a freggin Rockstar.

 Suddenly I’m surrounded by a mob kids  that think I have the magic spot or something. I decided to try another location but wound up with just that one ball.. 

Autographs this year so far-8

Autographed Rockies baseballs so far-7

Clint Barmes, Tulo, Ryan Speirer, Franklin Morales, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jorge De La Rosa and Jonathan Hererra(both on the same ball) , Micah Bowie, Jonathan Hererra. 

                                                                                            JorDLRosa.jpgI  really wanted Jorge De La Rosa to have a great night.

 Hunter and I each had  baseballs autographed the day before by him.  I really thought Jorge seemed like a young guy who had his act together.

Guess who threw out the first pitch tonight? 

The Maytag repair man .

That was different. Better him than some CEO I don’t know.

 I really think they should pick a fan from each game to throw out the first pitch.

 How cool would it be if you were chosen?…A guy can dream.maytag.JPG

In the end. Rockies pull this one off and win 4-3.

 De La Rosa gets the win. Rockies have now won three in a row.

Baby steps but this feels good.

I’ll be there tomorrow and we’ll go from there.

      Go Rockies…DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Green Floppy Hat.JPG
