Affected by Altitude: Is It Now Safe to Turn Off Your Computer?

The Rockies are finally out of the running. Is it time to start shutting people down? Meanwhile the Padres completely collapsed and the Redbirds meteorically ascended from their ashes.

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, Skyler, Mac, and Evan are joined by Purple Row editor and friend of the show Justin Wick to discuss the waning Colorado Rockies season. Connor Joe has been shut down for the season. Should the team do the same with a struggling and tired Germán Márquez? What do our hosts expect from Peter Lambert as he returns to the team for his first start since 2019? Meanwhile, the Rockies have clinched their third straight losing season, but they did so much better than expected. Is there room for hope? Plus, the Padres collapsed, the Cardinals are surging, and there are some interesting teams to watch now that the Rockies are officially out of the race.
