Rockies’ June swoon: To worry or not to worry? Purple Dinosaur Podcast discusses

A new PDP for a new winning streak (even it’s one game; please, just win one game).

Things have not been what you, the viewing public, would call "good" lately for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball. Losing is afoot. Is the dreaded June swoon finally rearing its head to sink the early season good fortunes of the strong baseball men in purple? Eh, probably not. Sometimes teams play like garbage for a couple of weeks. The 2007 Rockies went 1-9 on a road trip and lost eight straight and still went to the World Series. Whaddaya want from me?

We'll discuss why it's too early to FREAK THE HECK OUT about what's going on with this losing streak. There are things to be concerned about (we'll discuss those too), but the overall trend is still very much up for this team.

Plus, a REAL journalist joins the show! Jonathan McNicol of WNPR in Connecticut joins us to talk about his podcast, "The Second First Season" which is currently following the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats through their first season in Hartford and second season in existence.

It's the 109th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Melt it down and jump into it!
