Ever since Ubaldo Jiménez pitched a no-hitter on April 17th against the Atlanta Braves you knew 2010 would be a special season for the Colorado Rockies.
It was the first no-hitter in the 18-year history of the storied baseball franchise. Remember the Blake Street Bombers? Now the Rockies play U-ball (the nickname for Jiménez’s four-seam fastball).
Everybody knows about the 10 game win streak that saw the Rockies sweep the Padres, Reds and Diamondbacks. The Rockies seem to be playing with a we can’t lose attitude.
Some people say Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki willed the Rockies to victory over the Padres recently. Whatever it is the Rockies are winning and that gets people talking.
Every where I go the people have Rockies fever. They’re all talking about the Colorado Rockies.
