Affected by Altitude: Open the Door, Get on the Salary Floor, Everybody Walk the Dinosaur

The Rockies are over-performing, under-performing, and overall are just really weird... but your hosts wonder if there’s a glimmer of a good team in there somewhere.

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, Skyler, and Mac discuss how it’s a weird as heck season and the Colorado Rockies are somehow both under-performing and over-performing. There’s an inking of a decent team in these purple bones, but what’s the direction to go in from here? Personally we think that direction should involve Connor Joe, who rules. Meanwhile, things are afoot across the league. Giannis Antetokounmpo now owns part of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Mets are spiraling and Jacob deGrom might be done for the year, and the league has proposed the introduction of a $100m salary floor. Also, the Little League World Series and Little League Classic are upon us, and Joey Votto is definitely a Hall of Famer, no matter what Mac says.

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 be able to steamroll a little leaguer at first base. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
