Rockies' Nolan Arenado joins Purple Dinosaur Podcast to discuss playing meaningful ball in August, more

The Boss of the Rockies' infield and the Boss of this here website join the show this week

Yeah, that Nolan! Colorado Rockies third baseman and three-time Gold Glove Award winner Nolan Arenado joins this week's show to talk about playing meaningful games in August, the future of the franchise, being a leader at just 25, and more.

We'll break down a rough week of Rockies baseball, including the mighty struggles of the bullpen in crucial games of late, but also give you reasons to feel positive about the way things are heading. David Dahl is on a record-shattering pace. Jon Gray is still an ace. They're playing ball at a clearly .500-or-better rate.

On this week's show, we also attempt to answer the question of what the Rockies do with outfielder Gerardo Parra, who is healthy and off the disabled list but still struggling to find a way on base. Parra's rough season comes at a time when Dahl is breaking out and Charlie Blackmon continues to surge. What does it mean for the outfield picture going forward?

Plus, Bryan Kilpatrick of Purple Row joins us to talk about the Rockies' 2016 season, look at what could be ahead for the offseason, discuss Walt Weiss' current status as manager, and much more.
