MLB Opening Day 2016: Predictions, prospects and injuries the subject of latest Purple Dinosaur Podcast

Real baseball starts in THREE DAYS! Let's get caught up.

The 2016 Colorado Rockies baseball season is nearly upon us. Jon Gray is injured! Jason Motte is injured! Troy Tulowitzki is STILL a Blue Jay. Unbelievable.

But really, there are lots of things to be excited about for this upcoming Major League Baseball campaign. In the 68th edition of the PDP, we look into our crystal ball to give you some preditions about the season ahead. Trevor Story will be the Rockies' Opening Day shortstop. Gray will be unleashed once healthy. Jeff Hoffman and Kyle Freeland and Miguel Castro and Antonio Senzatela and a whole lot of other arms are on the way. Plus, you still get to watch Nolan Arenado on a daily basis. Not much beats that.

We'll cap off this week's show with our 2016 breakout players and some thoughts on what this season means in the grand scope of the Rockies pursuit of respectability. Catch it all!
