Purple Row Radio - 9/29/11

Welcome back to this special edition of Purple Row Radio, celebrating the merciful end to the Rockies 2011 season.
On this edition, Andrew and I discuss the following topics and more:

- Why this season ranks for us amongst the worst in Rockies history, even if the final record doesn't reflect it.
- How does the late-September collapse of 2011 mirror 2010's, and how do they differ?
- Why does Andrew think Jim Tracy's choices regarding the playing time of certain players is one of the most significant 2011 issues that was actually avoidable?
- Why does Greg want to purge this season from everyone's mind (the fans as well as the team) and ensure everyone moves on as quickly as possible?
- The surprising downfall of Ubaldo Jimenez.
- Why the Rockies should be pleased with the seasons of Troy Tulowitzki, Calos Gonzalez and Todd Helton.

We'll be back sometime after the divisional series for a postseason show.

Purple Row Radio - 9/14/11

Hey all, we've got another podcast uploaded at last. Unfortunately, it remains difficult to get these uploaded correctly.

On this edition, Andrew and I discuss the following topics and more:
- Our impressions of certain September callups.
- What were Andrew's impressions of Drew Pomeranz' start?
- What are the chances Pomeranz will make the team straight out of Spring Training 2012? What factors work for or against this?
- What will be Jordan Pacheco's role with the Rockies going forward?
- Why is Wilin Rosario's 2012 fate still so unclear?
