Sunday Rockpile: Podcasts, replay, and Rosario

New, 124 comments

Take a lazy Sunday and listen to some smart people talk Rockies baseball.

Thearon W. Henderson

For those of you who enjoy your podcasts, have I got a Sunday morning treat for you. If you are yet unaware, friends of Purple Row Tyler Maun and Anthony Masterson have started a Rockies only pod called the Purple Dino Podcast. You can listen to the first four episodes here, including episode 2 which features our very own Bryan Kilpatrick.

Plans currently include an appearance from yours truly on an upcoming episode, but I highly recommend you check them all out as these guys know their stuff and are very complimentary of the work we do here at PR with the same general these; catering to actual die-hard Rockies fans.

On a quick side note, if this makes you at all sad about the infrequency of our own Purple Row Radio, I would only suggest you do your best to give positive feedback to anything on this site you would like to see more of.

NIck Groke of the Denver Post agrees with me (or probably the other way around) about the effectiveness and importance of instant replay in baseball.

Want more on Wilin Rosario's excellent display of defense last night? Troy Renck has you covered with a break-down of Rosario's improvements behind the plate that contributed to his game saving defense yesterday.

Thomas Harding at MLB.com also says Rosario's wrist issues not a long-term problem.

Harding has all the goodies on the kick-ass job the bullpen did yesterday when called upon before they knew they would be needed.
