We are over a week into the 2016 Major League Baseball season, and your Colorado Rockies are above the .500 mark at 5-4. Trevor Story is still pretty good! Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez and other dudes are also still good! Miguel Castro throws fire from atop two legs the thickness of Olive Garden breadsticks!

But oh, right, they have a staff ERA north of 8.00 and are still a bit concerning in virtually every way on the pitching side. The more things change...

We'll dive into the Rockies' start to the 2016 campaign with tenacity and ferocity. From discussing the things to like about Trevor Story (even while he strikes out) to some conversation about struggling starter Jordan Lyles and best-case rotation scenarios, the 70th edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast is jam-packed.

Also, there's a story of how Tyler introduced himself to a Denver sports anchor while thinking he was actually a Giants radio broadcaster. So there's that.

Listen below. You know what to do by now.
