After a wild series against the Padres, the Rockies are left with more questions than answers. The offense is purple hot, but is it a flash in the pan or indicative of the true talent on this team? Can the bullpen be fixed? And what does the Rockies slow embrace of modern baseball, as reported in The MVP Machine, mean for the future of the franchise?

In episode 6 of Affected by Altitude, Ben Kouchnerkavich, Adam Peterson, and Renee Dechert dig into where the Rockies are, what they need, and how a new book reveals why some of their pitching woes may have been avoidable had they embraced new techniques sooner.

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 an edgertronic camera is. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
