The podcast Affected by Altitude is hosted by Purple Row 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 less than thrilled with how the Colorado Rockies have started their 2023 campaign. Daniel Bard is back, while Randal Grichuk, Antonio Senzatela, and Germán Márquez are on the way, but nothing seems to be working for this team. The rotation is floundering, the offense isn’t getting it done, and the defense is inadequate. Elehuris Montero has been effectively benched. Could it be time for a change at manager? Would a new skipper help, or are the problems to ingrained at the top of the front office? At least rookie pitcher Noah Davis has been making gutsy starts. As Harry Ralston Black says: “That’s Baseball.” Meanwhile, Skyler recaps his trip to Albuquerque to take in an Isotopes game. He and Evan discuss the ‘Topes, and the joys of Minor League Baseball.
