The internet's first -- and inarguably best -- Colorado Rockies podcast. Ever. In the history of humanity.
Episode 212 | September 8, 2021: Larry Walker, Hall of Famer
For the first time in human history, we are now living in a world with a Colorado Rockies hat atop a player's head on a plaque in the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum. Larry Walker was inducted on Wednesday in Cooperstown, New York, and on this week's episode of the PDP, we reflect on some of our favorite Larry Walker memories and more.
Plus, it sure looks like the Rockies are going to hand their GM position to Bill Schmidt because they're reportedly "pleased with the job he's done," whatever that means. We discuss what that means for the franchise as it stays mired in mediocrity.
Finally, we take your #AskPDP questions and roast perhaps the most requested Commercial Roast of the Week subject in PDP history. All that and more on this week's edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Elect it to your own Hall of Fame!
Episode 211 | August 5, 2021: A Deadline For Nothing
The MLB trade deadline came and went, and aside from reacquiring two players they've previously had in the system, your Colorado Rockies did...literally nothing to improve. We dissect how Bill Schmidt's inaction was so eminently predictable and what it means going forward for a team that doesn't seem to be serious about hiring any help from the outside nor about building a sustainable system for winning in Colorado.
Plus, it's a two-fer on the PDP's Commercial Roast of the Week which you should really be excited about. All that and much more is on this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Ask someone to the Olympic Days school dance with it!
Episode 210 | July 13, 2021: LIVE PDP! LIVE PDP! LIVE PDP!
On July 11 at Wide Right at 2100 Curtis Street in Denver, we did the very first (and maybe only) live Purple Dinosaur Podcast in the history of the planet. It was more fun than we could ever have imagined. If you were there, you heard all of this. If not, we welcome you to it. It's a fun one. Adam Cayton-Holland! Brad Galli! Jon Snodgrass! Tune in! Love you!
Episode 209 | June 10, 2021: If Only They Could Win On the Road
As the calendar nears mid-June, your Colorado Rockies have the second-most home wins in the National League.
They are also on pace to be the worst road team in the history of baseball.
On this week's episode of the PDP, we discuss how Austin Gomber might actually be good, how Charlie Blackmon may not yet be bad, how the Rockies ruined their entire crop of pitching arms from the 2015-16 draft, and a whole lot more. We also field your #AskPDP questions for the first time in a long time on everything from what the Rockies' City Connect jerseys could look like next season to why watching all of our favorite teams is absolute torture.
Plus, we roast a nine-year old Coca-Cola commercial that still drives us up the dang wall.
All that and more is on this week's episode of the PDP! Steal it off your roommate's plate!
Episode 208 | May 27, 2021: That's SO You (To Never Win on the Road)
This week on the PDP, we're talking about the historic struggles of the 2021 Colorado Rockies away from home. Seriously, the Rockies are almost always bad on the road, but this team is on pace to be the worst team in the history of baseball on the road by a wide margin. We discuss why they're just so awful away from Coors Field and, well, we don't really offer solutions, but we talk about it anyway.
Plus, Kyle Freeland and Brendan Rodgers are back. Freeland looked fine in his first start, and Rodgers has put together some early hits. We'll give you our thoughts on each and why a terrible team needs to be better about just giving its young talent consistent playing time to sink or swim. It's not like it's going to make this season any worse.
Finally, we lay waste to a terrible Buick commercial on this episode's Roast of the Week.
All that and more is on the latest edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Take luck and care! Take care of the luck that you might have! If you have luck, take it, care for it!
Episode 207 | May 14, 2021: We'll Figure It Out
Your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast is back after a week away so Anthony could so something pointless and easy like "move into a new house" or something.
This week on the show, we talk about the Rockies' appointment of longtime scouting director Bill Schmidt as interim general manager and whether he's got the inside track to the permanent job in that position. Plus, are we witnessing the end of Charlie Blackmon while he continues to struggle offensively? Is Jon Gray now the Rockies' best trade piece? Will Trevor Story end up on the same infield as DJ LeMahieu again?
Remember when we used to get to talk about fun and exciting things with this team? Now not so much.
But it's all here on this week's episode of the PDP! Dive in!

Such a great podcast. You guys are awesome
Used to be better
We get it. You don’t like how the Rockies are run. You seem to hate the team on a deep level. Why don’t you change the format of your show to general baseball format and make yourselves happier?
Thank goodness that the Orange Man Bad lost so at least we don’t have to listen to those screeds anymore. I get it, you’re a progressive. What does that have to do with baseball?
