Affected by Altitude: A Tired Trade Deadline Tête-à-tête

The Rockies’ complete inaction frustrated the die-hards and generated apathy in the casual fans. Mac, Skyler, and Evan sit down and have a long conversation about this franchise.

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 Daniel Bard’s extension before having an extended conversation about the Colorado Rockies and their inaction at the deadline. This team is frustrating, listless, and seems to lack much of a plan or identity for either right now or for the future. By doing nothing at all for the 2022 trade deadline, the Rockies seem determined to kick the can down the road to the frustration and growing apathy of fans. What’s to be done? Why are they doing it? We have a nice long discussion about it all.

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