Colorado Rockies Podcast: PDP covers all the bases (baseball reference) in episode 130

The purplest of Rockies’ podcasts

PDP alt logo

We recorded a really great 130th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast this afternoon...or so we thought. Half of the episode didn’t record. So here is the second take on that first great episode, and you know what? We think it’s just as fine and dandy as the first one. It’s a free podcast – you get what you pay for.

But the PDP returns for the final podcast of April! This week, we’ll discuss The Ian Desmond Conundrum and how long a big league lineup can continue to carry him on a day-to-day basis. Especially with the return of the apparently real David Dahl and what looks like a heating up bat for Ryan McMahon (amazing what happens when you get regular playing time!), how much longer can Desmond continue to strictly hit grounders to the right side before he’s rotated out of a regular starting role?

The Rockies hit the road at 14-12 despite not playing anything approaching their best baseball as of yet. Jon Gray and Kyle Freeland looked great their last times out. Will that momentum spread through the rotation? And what’s up with Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw?

Plus a look at Jenny Cavnar’s historic (and terrific) debut on TV play-by-play for the Rockies, including how you should feel about the trolls who try to tear a moment like that down. All that and more on the 130th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Toss it into your backpack and go on a nice spring hike with it!
