Affected by Altitude: Going Profar Away From Here
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 departure (and return to the San Diego Padres) of outfielder Jurickson Profar. Profar’s departure facilitated the call up of Colorado Rockies top prospect Hunter Goodman, who had been setting Triple-A ablaze. Sean Bouchard has also returned from his injury and is on the major league roster once more. Decisions will have to be made about what this team looks like next year, as a 100-loss season is all but certain. The Rockies are on a runaway train straight towards the worst season in franchise history. Will ownership do anything to right the ship? Does 100 losses even mean anything for this team? Finally, we name our position player, pitcher, and MVP of the month and examine who stood out in a pretty unpleasant August.
