The PDP returns with the Rockies fresh off a series split with the World Series-champion Houston Astros and set to welcome the scorching hot Oakland Athletics to Coors Field. This week, with a trade already in the books bringing Seunghwan Oh to Colorado, we dive into the deal by sheer coincidence. Our guests are Class A Advanced Lancaster JetHawks radio voice Jason Schwartz, who gives us his thoughts on former Rockies prospect Forrest Wall, dealt to Toronto in the trade. Later, we’ll hear from Class A Asheville Tourists radio broadcaster Doug Maurer, who brought up Chad Spanberger before the trade was even a rumor.
Jason and Doug cover a wealth of other topics about their 2018 teams this year, including the development of some impressive bullpen arms in Lancaster along with top prospects like Colton Welker and an Asheville team that has been led by an older core of players this season.
All that and more is here this week on the 143rd episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Load it into a slingshot and send it across the lunch room!
