The Purple Dinosaur Podcast is back for Episode No. 9, and this week, we're taking a jaunt back to Denver's pre-big league (and even pre-minor league) days with Matthew Repplinger, president of the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). Repp takes us through some of Denver's illustrious baseball past including the hallowed Denver Post Tournament era of the 1920s and '30s, a few of the Mile High City's old baseball palaces (we'd be remiss if we didn't link to this terrific PR piece from last year here), and much more.
We'll also get a look at this Rockies-Royals series from the other side of the divide. Mike Vamosi from KingsofKauffman.com joins us to discuss some of the similarities between the Colorado and Kansas City organizations.
Plus, there's some discussion about Franklin Morales and some debate about where the Rockies go with his spot in the rotation, but that's sort of depressing after all the positive feelings we've had about this team for the last month or so. We'll understand if you skip over that part.
Oh, and Yasiel Puig joins us! Sort of. Subscribe on iTunes and the Stitcher app!
