Every Rockie Ever Podcast: The Super Bullpen

Skyler and Dustin look back on the Rockies attempt to spend big on the bullpen in 2018

Every Rockie Ever is a show under the Rocky Mountain Rooftop banner where brothers Skyler and Dustin Timmins sit down and talk about every player to suit up for the Colorado Rockies to share memories and the legacy of their careers.

Following the 2017 season, Jeff Bridich and the Colorado Rockies decided to spend $106 million on the bullpen, signing Jake McGee, Bryan Shaw, and Wade Davis. Unfortunately for the Rockies, none of the players finished out their contract as ineffectiveness, injury, and other circumstances forced the Rockies to cut ties with each of them. Skyler and Dustin do their best to reflect on the initial hopeful reactions to the signings and lament that none of the deals made the most sense with the money that was offered. McGee had solid years prior to the new contract, Davis led the NL in saves in 2018, and Shaw ate innings. The Super Bullpen was shortlived and one of the biggest blunders by the Rockies in recent memory.

In 30 years of existence, the Colorado Rockies have seen nearly 700+ players and coaches suit up in purple. From the greats of Todd Helton and Larry Walker to obscure ones like Kent Bottenfield and Tim Christman. Join brothers Skyler and Dustin Timmins as they endeavor to shine a light on Every Rockie Ever.

Every Rockie Ever is part of the Rocky Mountain Rooftop network, a Rockies affiliate of the Fans First Podcast Network.
