With a Thursday night win over the Padres, your, my, and our Colorado Rockies have won 11 of their last 12 games at home and continue pushing themselves into second place in the National League West. A lot of stuff has been going right as of late. Charlie Blackmon is back to being Charlie Blackmon. Peter Lambert has been a terrific addition to the rotation — albeit through just two starts. And it just never quite feels like the Rockies are out of a game at home, which is pretty dang fun.
We’ll take a look at some of what’s propelled the Rockies to such a strong run at home as of late and how to keep it going. We’ll discuss Colorado’s suddenly strung bullpen and some of what has plagued the rotation in recent weeks. Plus, the weekly Kyle Freeland discussion is back after the lefty’s second start with the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes. Hint: the numbers were ugly but the full scope may not be as ugly as it appears.
Plus, what was the deal with that beanball war with the Cubs? That was dumb. We’ll break it down. Kind of. Dunno — it was just kind of dumb.
All that and more is here this week on the 170th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Put it on your elbow and hang out over the plate with it!
