Affected by Altitude: April Showers Bring May Flowers... Right?

This week Skyler and Evan are struggling with the Rockies’ painful start to the 2023 season. The injuries, the lack of success on all sides of the ball, and the unpleasant results cause patience to wear thin. Is there any hope on the horizon?

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.

The month of April is over and the Colorado Rockies are... not good. Skyler and Evan discuss the worst month of April in Rockies franchise history as seemingly nothing—from the pitching to the defense to the hitting—is working. Meanwhile the rotation is in shambles as the injuries keep piling up. Germán Márquez and Noah Davis are both on the IL and we don’t know how long it will be for. What hope is there for the starting unit? There are some positives, at least. Randal Grichuk is back, Antonio Senzatela is on his way, and the Rockies have been letting more of the young guys play with the rise of Brenton Doyle. We also announce our April (and March!) Players of the month!
