Purple Row Radio - 6/27/11

Welcome back to Purple Row Radio!

On this edition, Andrew and I discuss the following topics and more:

- Biking.
- Impressions of the Yankees series; what we wanted and what we actually got.
- Aaron Cook's current situation upcoming at the end of the year (or sooner).
- What should be done with Cook in the meantime?
- If we were to move Cook out of the rotation, who could replace him?
- Why Greg thinks Eric Young Jr's spot in the team has to do with Dexter Fowler's weaknesses, and why Andrew thinks Cole Garner should be here instead.

Purple Row Radio - 6/20/11

Welcome back to Purple Row Radio! On this edition, Andrew and I get very distracted and talk about the following random things and (probably) more:

- Rockies players playing through games with broken bones. Cool!
- What exactly does it mean to be on the 40 Man Roster and the 60 Day Disabled List? Whoa!
- Why did Matt Pagnozzi get the call as opposed to Eliezer Alfonzo or Jordan Pacheco? Awesome!
- Flashback to backup catchers of years past, including names such as Alvin Colina, Edwin Bellorin and Geronimo Gil. Radical!
- Why Jason Hammel and Huston Street give such great interviews. Totally sweet!
- Andrew takes another look at the progress of Charlie Blackmon and Chris Nelson as they continue their quests for long-term opportunities with the Rockies. Wow!
- What can we expect from the upcoming Indians series? .... exclamation!
- Producing a podcast. .... Seriously?
- Plenty of other nonsense.

Note: this episode is not, in fact, a toy commercial.

Purple Row Radio - 6/13/11

Welcome to this special realignment edition of Purple Row Radio (seriously, that's about all we talk about)! On this edition, Andrew and I discuss:

- Something unusual and possibly Rockies related that I discovered at work.
- We break down the new realignment proposal and compare it to some of the other common proposals.
- We each cover our opinions on this realignment and realignment in general.
- Why do I want to keep divisional play but, possibly even more radically, remove the league separation?
- All sorts of other opinions on interleague play, the DH, and more.
- Why Andrew is impressed with Chris Nelson.
- Why this is a huge opportunity for Nelson, and why by contrast, Charlie Blackmon doesn't have to make the impression Nelson does right now.

On this edition of Purple Row Radio, Andrew and I discuss:

- The promotion of Rex Brothers.

- Our new waiver claims Josh Roenicke and Ryan Rohlinger.

- Opinions on a couple of other unrelated controversial issues from the past.
- We bring in John Gennaro, who shares his thoughts on the Padres season thus far.
- How is Brad Hawpe faring with the team and how will the forthcoming promotion of Anthony Rizzo affect him?
