After our one week All-Star/illness hiatus, the PDP returns to get you set for the start of the second half. The Rockies floundered their way into the break on a six-game losing streak and now find three teams ahead of them in the National League West. Not only that, but the trade deadline is approaching, and the July 31 one is the only one now. What will the Rockies’ approach be to try to better a club that, as of right now, looks like it’ll struggle to make a third straight playoff appearance? What trade targets could be possible for the Rockies, and how likely are they to pony up the prospect price tag it would take to land someone big?

Plus, we’ll field some #AskPDP questions about when we’ll retire (never, you poor saps) to which video game character would make the best deadline acquisition and more.
