Affected by Altitude: All Around Me Are Familiar Faces (of the Franchise)

Evan, Skyler, and Mac discuss the Rockies coaching changes, the rise of Zac Veen, and name their players of the month!

The Purple Row podcast Affected by Altitude is hosted by staff writers Evan Lang, Skyler Timmins, and Mac Wilcox, who are all 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 the biggest news of the young offseason for the Colorado Rockies: hitting coach Dave Magadan is gone. What does this mean for the future of the Rockies and who should come in to instill a new hitting philosophy with a struggling offense? Stu Cole has also been moved. The longtime third base coach has been reassigned to a minor league role. With one face leaving, the Rockies might have a new face (of the franchise) on the big league roster soon as Zac Veen impresses down in the Arizona Fall League. When can we expect him? It’s also time for our September/October players of the month!
