I 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 Ubaldo will dominate the National League with 22 wins.
In 2011 Jason Hammel will step it up a bit with 12 wins.
In 2011 Aaron Cook will improve locking in 8 wins.
In 2011 Jhoulys Chacin will continue to make his mark with 12 wins.
In 2010 Tulo had 27 homeruns, 95 RBI and 11 stolen bases
In 2011 Tulo will hit 36 homeruns, 107 RBI and will steal 18 bases.
In 2010 Cargo had 34 homeruns, 117 RBI and 26 stolen bases.
In 2011 Cargo will hit 35 homeruns, 120 RBI and will steal 28 bases.
In 2010 Dexter Fowler had 6 homeruns and 36 RBI and 13 stolen bases.
In 2011 Dexter busts out with an incredible 21 homeruns 65 RBI and 25 stolen bases.
2010 season win/loss record was 83-79
2011 season win/loss record will be 94-6
I’m “D” The Rockpile Ranter and I can see the f’kn light.
