March 23 - 9 days to Opening Day:
Dexter Fowler, outfielder
@Rockies: #RockiesTweet20 starts now with #Rockies OF Dexter Fowler. Send your questions along to @Rockies or #RockiesTweet20 and Dexter will answer!
@spleentim: Would you rather start the season with 10 road games and finish with 10 at home, or the reverse, starting at home?
@Rockies: I'd rather begin on the road and finish home because during the playoff push we'd rather play at home.
@Nuggestsfanforlife: What's your favorite park to play at besides Coors Field?
@Rockies: My favorite park away from Coors Field is Dodger Stadium because it's always a good game and the stars in the stands
@PoseidonsFist: Do you prefer hitting second or leadoff?
@Rockies: It doesn't matter to me anymore, I'll hit wherever Skipper puts me in the lineup.
@Axellent33: What's your main focus this spring? Improving speed, defense, contact or power?
@Rockies: All of the above. Once you try to concentrate on one you'll need to work on the other next.
@BenJHilmer: What's your favorite place to eat in the Mile High City?
@Rockies: Favorite place to eat: Del Frisco's south of downtown.
@NikkiLovesCO: What is the team's greatest strength and weakness at the moment?
@Rockies: Strength-We have all everyday players. Weakness-Getting the players in, with so much talent it's hard to get everyone in
@kiranapoleon: How many bases are you going to steal this year? :)
@Rockies: My goal is set at 40, but if I don't reach that and we win, then my goal is still accomplished.
@bodemuro: Who is the toughest pitcher you've faced.
@Rockies: Toughest Pitcher-Kevin Correia (SD). Seems like I'm 0-for-12 or 13 against him.
@Axellent33: Who's your best friend inside the roster?
@Rockies: If I had to choose, I'd say EY Jr. We've been playing together since I've been with the Rockies, he's like my brother.
@wyoclone: Favorite MLB team and player(s) growing up?
@Rockies: Favorite Team & Player- I loved the Mariners. And Griffey Jr. was definitely my favorite...hence why I wear #24.
@jgeib22: How do you like the new training facilities at Salt River Fields?
@Rockies: State of the art...best I've ever seen. From weight room to clubhouse to field, hands down best facility.
@roxfan00: Have you ever pitched before?
@Rockies: I used to pitch a lot. The last time was in 9th grade when I pitched and played center.
@tray919: What other sports do you like?
@Rockies: Basketball. Football. Golf. I try to get to Nuggets games every chance I get.
@guyindenver: Do you have any superstitions? No gold thong, right?
@Rockies: No superstitions. I'm sure I have some, I just don't realize it!
@mjflick25: Who is looking to be your biggest competition in the NL West?
@Rockies: Obviously the Giants, they are the defending World Champions. The Dodgers too, we always have a tough time beating them.
@Garrett_Fitz: What is worse: running into the outfield wall or getting hit by a mid 90s fastball?
@Rockies: Running into the wall for sure, your whole body hurts after that.
@WillRyan2: Your thoughts on the CarGo-Tulo 3-4 punch? Most dangerous in baseball?
@Rockies: Most dangerous for sure. I love hitting in front of those guys and being able to watch them every day.
@davidadambecker: When you made the jump from Double-A to the bigs a couple years ago, how did it make you feel? Excited, nervous, both?
@Rockies: A little of both. Obviously nervous, I had been waiting my whole life for it, but I was prepared and excited as well.
@EKondrick5: What is the best fan sign you have seen?
@Rockies: I can't choose one. There have been some good one's over the years but nothing that really stood out for me.
@xtina11179: I just love the "brotherhood" you all have seemed to form with one another!! Is it legit?
@Rockies: For sure, we're like a family. We play together every day for 8, 9 months. We're definitely all like brothers.
@CentralCaliRox: What do you like most about the Rockies as a franchise?
@Rockies: Best thing about Rockies-How close everyone is. It's definitely like a family, we all get along very well.
@Okie_Son: I was at the Drillers opening night in 2009 when you belted two HRs. What is your most memorable HR?
@Rockies: Most memorable HR-Against St. Louis last year to tie the game at Coors Field. That was a rush!
@Rockies: That's all we have for #RockiesTweet20 with OF Dexter Fowler. Thank you for your questions!
