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 discuss the important return of one Charles Cobb “Chuck Nazty” Blackmon to the Colorado Rockies. Blackmon’s return appears to be a rallying cry for the offense and his strong veteran presence is meaningful for the incredibly young group of position players. Should the Rockies consider bring Chuck back for another ride on a one-year deal? Meanwhile, rookies like Brenton Doyle and Nolan Jones are changing the game for the Rockies when it comes to outfield defense. They’re not only the two best outfielders on the team, they’re two of the best outfielders in the league. Finally, Jurickson Profar is... a problem for this team. What’s to be done about it? We also name our July players of the month!
