Affected by Altitude: Are You Schmidtten With Our New GM?

This week, we discuss the Rockies’ official new general manager and his first two contracts. We also talk Arizona Fall League and the playoffs so far!

The Purple Row podcast Affected by Altitude is back for 2021 with all new hosts. Staff writers Evan Lang, Skyler Timmins, and Mac Wilcox are incredibly proud and excited to be lending their voices to more great Purple Row content for you to enjoy.

This week, the Colorado Rockies have made a big move: Bill Schmidt has had the “interim” removed from his title and been named general manager. He then wheeled around and got two extensions done in short order. Mac, Skyler, and Evan discuss Schmidt’s official appointment as GM, the contracts he’s done, and what the future might hold. Plus, Arizona Fall League is back after a year long hiatus, and the MLB playoffs are underway with the Wild Card games done and the Division Series going strong.
