Affected by Altitude: The Big 2021 Trade Deadline Episode

The MLB trade deadline has come and gone. Some teams made huge moves while certain... others did not. You bet your hosts have something to say about it.

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, Evan, Mac, and Skyler are joined by their fellow Purple Row staff writer and Pebble Report Podcast co-host Kenneth Weber! The day is here at last: Major League Baseball’s trade deadline, and who better than your AxA crew (and special guest!) to discuss some of the bigger moves made around the league? Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies made one move... Well, two I guess. Neither of them were the one you were expecting. Mychal Givens is gone, but CJ Cron, Daniel Bard, and Jon Gray all remain Rockies. Also remaining in purple for two more months is Trevor Story. The crew has a lot to get out of their system.

Affected by Altitude is a weekly or bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a group of Purple Row contributors. We live in different places, have varying backgrounds, and may or may not think we should have traded for Bartolo Colon. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.

Are you a Purple Row reader and a Rockies fan? Then this show is for you. Please let us know how we’re doing, what you would like to see moving forward, or how we can do better. You can comment down below, or on Twitter at @AltitudeEffect.
