Purple Dinocast No. 12: The Rise of the Butler

Episode 12 of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast takes on a flavor of the future. We're talking lots of Eddie Butler and MLB Draft with Bryan Kilpatrick of Purple Row.

It hasn't been a good couple of weeks in terms of baseball on the field for the Rockies, so it feels like a good time to look to the future. Oh, and Eddie Butler's promotion doesn't hurt.

Tyler and Anthony are talking lots of Butler on Episode 12 of the podcast, including possible timetables for the prospects who could follow, like Jon Gray, Tyler Matzek, and Daniel Winkler. Bryan Kilpatrick of Purple Row joins us to discuss the move, what it could mean for a struggling Rockies club, and more.

Plus, we preview the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft with Bryan. Will the Rockies land themselves another Gray or Butler? Or will they jump at another Greg Reynolds as an Evan Longoria of the future slips by?

Oh, and for virtually no reason whatsoever, we make fun of the late-'90s expansion uniforms of the Devil Rays and Diamondbacks. Seemed like a fun thing to do.
