Rockies get Jon Gray back just in time to (maybe) lose Miguel Castro

The baseball gods are idiots. That and more on the Chin-hui Tsao Memorial Episode of Purple Dinosaur Podcast!

For the third straight week, the PDP drops an episode with the Colorado Rockies above the .500 mark. This week, the Rockies took two of three from the Cubs and got the news that Jon Gray would return to the rotation against the Dodgers on Friday. Then the baseball gods remembered Rockies fans aren't allowed to have happiness and struck down Miguel Castro with shoulder inflammation while also giving the Reds a series win over the Rox. Fun!

Anthony and Tyler talk Colorado's surprisingly good work on the mound lately, the renaissance of Chad Bettis, what Castro's injury could mean for the bullpen, Gray's return, and much more on the 71st edition of the PDP.

Plus, Episode 71 is named in honor of Chin-hui Tsao, former top prospect in the Rockies system. Tsao is somehow back in affiliated baseball these days, and we take you on a long and winding journey along his bizarre last several years in and out of the game. Stick around for this one. It's interesting.
