Affected by Altitude: Bullpen in a China Shop

Your hosts discuss the fickle Rockies bullpen and what can be done about it, plus September call-ups, Connor Joe, and more!

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, Mac, Evan, and Skyler take an in-depth look at Daniel Bard and the fickle Colorado Rockies bullpen and what can be done to fix it. The bullpen has it’s moments and some gems hidden in the muck, but boy howdy can it frustrate the heck out of you. Meanwhile, Connor Joe is earning every day playing time out of the leadoff spot, but Raimel Tapia is set to return and leaves the Rockies with a dilemma. Plus, September call-ups are coming, the league needs to stop messing around with unpopular changes, and two legends are reaching the end of the line.

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 believe Connor Joe wears a Superman costume under his uniform. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
