Affected by Altitude: Recalibrating the Colorado Rockies

The Purple Row podcasters talk about what they’ve changed their mind about so far in 2019

We thought we knew a lot about this team on Opening Day. The rotation would be rock solid, the offense would be frustrating, and Ian Desmond would continue to get booed at Coors Field.

What a difference 58 games makes.

In episode 5 of Affected by Altitude, Ben Kouchnerkavich, Sam Bradfield, Eric Garcia McKinley, and Nick Hertzog discuss the Rockies hot offense, their concerns about the rotation and bullpen, and the unexpected emergence of Tony Wolters, Ian Desmond, and others who are contributing to a winning baseball team that is now in contention after a disastrous start.

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 DRS- is (Editor’s note: It’s wOBA). Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
