What a difference two weeks makes. Since our last episode, the Rockies have turned the season around with a strong homestand, solid pitching, and an offensive explosion aided by the return of Daniel Murphy. But is this the real Rockies? Sam Bradfield, Ben Kouchnerkavich, Eric Garcia McKinley and Adam Peterson break down Jon Gray’s statistical anomalies, the Rockies playoff odds after the winning streak, and whether Ian Desmond is back to average.
AxA is a bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a revolving group of Purple Row contributors and Rockies fandom. We live in different places, have diverse backgrounds, and may or may not care what the difference between bWAR and fWAR is. Regardless, we are united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
