This week Skyler and Evan are joined by Kenneth to discuss the injuries of Brendan Rodgers and Lucas Gilbreath, the singing of Mike Moustakas and Brad Hand, and other spring narratives.

The podcast Affected by Altitude is hosted by staff writers Evan Lang and Skyler Timmins,who are incredibly proud and excited to be lending their voices to more great Rockies content for you to enjoy. Joining Evan and Skyler is a rotating cast of guests hosts to talk shop about everyone’s favorite purple baseball team.

This week, Skyler and Evan are joined by Kenneth Weber to discuss the injuries of Brendan Rodgers and Lucas Gilbreath. The Colorado Rockies have signed Mike Moustakas to a minor league deal as they look to determine how to fill the gap left by Rodgers, and have signed LHP Brad Hand for the bullpen. Meanwhile, is the battle for the utility position between Cole Tucker and Harold Castro overlooking Alan Trejo? We also look at how key players Kris Bryant and Germán Márquez are doing so far in the desert.

Purple Row and SBN’s parent company Vox Media has informed us that they will no longer be supporting podcasts at the end of March, 2023. This means we will be losing access to our current publishing platform and any licensed media (such as the song we use for our intro and outro). However, this does not mean the end of the show. We remain dedicated to providing our listeners an excellent podcast on a regular basis and will be looking into alternative hosting and new options for the show. For example, starting with this episode we will be uploading video from our recording session on our YouTube page.
