Affected by Altitude: Here Comes the Deadline Again

The trade deadline fast approaches, but why are the Rockies so gunshy? Germán Márquez and Elias Díaz have improved in July, and it's time again for 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, Skyler, Evan, and Mac discuss the strong July for catcher Elias Díaz and starting pitcher Germán Márquez, both of whom needed the turnarounds they’re showing. We also ask the questions “what do you do when your team is getting blown out, and what do you do when your team is out of contention?” Meanwhile, the trade deadline looms. Why are the Colorado Rockies so gun-shy when it comes to the deadline and making big trades? What will they do this coming deadline? It’s also time at last for our July Players of the Month!

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.

Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
