And let's root, root, root for the ROCKIES!!

As everyone knows, I am a huge hockey and Nascar fan. Well, now I am also a baseball fan! I started watching the Colorado Rockies earlier this summer and now I watch every game. As of right now, the Rockies are 5 games back of the Padres in the National League. It's the stretch run right now as the Rockies are in New York taking on the Mets.

This season, the Rockies have had their ups and their downs. But through it all, the Rockies have come together as a team and are making the playoff push.

The ups:
  • Ubaldo Jimenez had the first no-hitter in Rockies history
  • Carlos Gonzalez hit a walk-off homerun for his first cycle of his career
  • Jimenez has a season-record of 17 wins
The downs:
  • Shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki missed 7 weeks with a broken wrist after he was hit with a pitch
  • The Rockies went on a 7 game loosing streak in the month of July
  • 1st baseman Todd Helton missed a couple weeks with a back injury
My favorites:

Little Pony, Cargo and Gonzo are just a few names they call Carlos Gonzalez. He leads the Rockies in homeruns (25), batting average (.321), and RBI's (79). Although he is in a little slump at the moment, he is an awesome player and he is really cute! :)

Don't you agree?? :)

My other favorites are Troy Tulowitzki, Ian Stewart, Seth Smith, Ubaldo Jimenez, Todd Helton, Ryan Spilborghs, Dexter Fowler.... Ok I love them all! :)

The Rockies are 8 and half games back of the Padres who are first in the NL West. Hopefully the Rockies can get those games back and get through the final stretch of the season.
