The Colorado Rockies deserve their fair share of criticismIt's time for a little rant.When I started this blog, it was because I felt that I had different viewpoints on the Colorado Rockies than many of the people who were commenting on Denver Post articles, or in other forums on the internet.

According to PITCH/fx, umpires weren’t giving Josh Outman the benefit of a doubt in 2011. If their called-strike data is accurate, only 65.3% of pitches the lefthander threw in the strike zone went in his favor. A remarkable 34.7% of would-be-strikes were called balls.
