Affected by Altitude: Rockies’ Postmortem, Part II

Dissecting a revealing non-press conference press conference

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, Affected by Altitude took on the daunting task of unpacking a disastrous season. In part two of our 2019 postmortem, Sam Bradfield and Ben Kouchnerkavich are joined by Adam Peterson and Nick Hertzog to discuss a few revelations from the press conference that wasn’t a press conference last Tuesday. Of interest were Bridich’s avoidance tactics, Monfort’s confession, and the Rockies’ general lack of interest in fundamental change from the top down.

We also begin to work our way through the prolific recommendations of amuesing1, who made a series of well-constructed arguments to show just how much could be done with a data-driven approach to playing at altitude. Thank you for the incredible effort you put into the piece, amuesing1!
