A bad season looking worse in retrospect

The Rockies ended 2019 on a high note, getting a small taste of revenge in a sweep of the Brewers. But as Rockies’ fans start to look back at the season that was, the Brewers’ series seems like one of the few bright spots for a 91-loss team with high expectations.

In Episode 10 of Affected by Altitude, Sam, Ben, and Eric dissect why the Rockies failed to meet expectations. The hosts also take a look back at some of the bold predications they made in April, many of which didn’t seem that bold at the time but look silly now thanks to the brutal honesty of hindsight.

AxA is a bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a revolving group of contributors from Purple Row. We live in different places, have varying backgrounds, and may or may not know what a FIP is. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fan-centered perspective.
