I see the light, let’s hope I’m right.


2011_Predictions2.jpgI normally don’t make predictions about how I think the Rockies season will turn out because I don’t want to jinx anything. This is my fourth season blogging about the Rockies and they have yet to win a World Series so I figure a little speculating can’t hurt right?

With the buzz of the new spring training facility and general good vibes it’s creating, good thing are going to happen this year.

Plus it’ll be fun to check back at the end of the season after we win the World Series and see how accurate I was.

                            Rockpile Ranter’s 2011 Rockies Predictions…

First off the Rockies finally break the road curse and become the team to beat on the road winning ten more road games in 2011 than in 2010. This is in part due to the Rockies strength in the bullpen this season.

In 2011 Dexter busts out with an incredible 21 homeruns 65 RBI and 25 stolen bases.


    2010 season win/loss record was 83-79

    Well, I’d love to see your predictions come true. I believe the Rockies will be contenders this year. But I’m not a huge fan of predictions when it comes to baseball. One of the beautiful things about the game is that it is by nature so unpredictable.

  2. rockieluv

    Hey D,

    My predictions are:
    The Rockpile Rant will attain the #1 blog standing and keep it for most if not all of the season
    The Rantics will start to be featured regularly on Root Sports

    See you in the post-season 🙂

  3. "D" The Rockpile Ranter

    GREATEST GAME-Agreed, but there is something to say about the power of positive thinking…Welcome to the Rant.
    R-LUV-I can tell that you also agree with the power of positive thinking…I like the way “post season” sounds :)…D

    I will commend you on some of your predictions, because they seem to be very likely to me too, but I will say that the Cardinals will definitely be winning the World Series (Only cuz I’m a Cards fan). The Rockies look solid and seem to have a bright future, and I can see them taking a title in the next few years with the young core they have. Good luck this year.

    Yo D,
    I got a hot dog on each of your predictions.
    Pretty bold with the Dexter Fowler bit.
    But I challenge your 25 stolen bases.
    DF is going to steal 40 this year.
    Why don’t you have Cargo hittin’ 40 homers?
    Yeah, the postseason is nice.
    It’s going to be tough getting past the World Champion San Francisco Giants.
    Welcome back,

  6. "D" The Rockpile Ranter

    CARDINALS-Welcome to the Rant and Good Luck this year.
    GIANT TODD-No betting this year, remember we didn’t have our bet last season and you won the World Series…Good Luck this season brotha, I enjoy the baseball back and forth we roll with all season…D
