It's the mooooooost wonderful [episoooooooooode] of the yeeeeeeeeear! Seriously, we were not aware until 2020 how much people absolutely love when we rag on commercials, but it has been one of our greatest lessons learned in this flaming garbage heap of a year. So with that, we bring you our most grandiose episode of the worst year in our collectiv…
 
The title of this episode was literally a quote from one of us when we hopped on our call to start recording, so that gives you an idea of how invested all of us were toward the end of The Thing That Was the 2020 Rockies season. On this week's episode of the PDP, we look back on the dumpster fire things turned into after the 11-3 start. Where do th…
 
Former Rockies first-round pick Mike Nikorak joins the show to talk about his ups and downs over five years in pro ball including Tommy John surgery, the rigors of adapting to life in the minors, what his 2020 has been like with no MiLB season, and much more. Plus, Tyler and Anthony dive into your #AskPDP queries touching on everything from why we …
 
This week featured what felt like a watershed moment in American professional sports with wildcat strikes popping up in the NBA and Major League Baseball to protest police brutality and social injustice. The Rockies, despite Matt Kemp choosing to sit in solidarity with members of the Black community and fellow professional athletes, decided to play…
 
Another week into the Major League Baseball season, and your, my, and our Colorado Rockies are still playing really good ball and still in first place! This week on the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, we discuss the Rockies' torrid start to the season on the mound including just how good this starting pitching staff has been. Plus, Trevor Story, Charlie B…
 
The first week (? week-ish?) of the 2020 Major League Baseball season is in the books, and your, my, and our Colorado Rockies are 4-1 after their first road trip. While the offense has been adequate, the pitching staff has been lights out from steady starting performances to absolutely dominant work out of the bullpen. On this week's episode of the…
 
Believe it or not, we are a week away from "Opening Day" of the 2020 "Major League Baseball season" which really a.) doesn't feel like it and b.) is sort of weird and guilt-inducing because of the current state of the country anyway. But it appears that it's going to happen, so on this week's episode of the PDP, we take you through a brief-ish prev…
 
Major League Baseball has a plan to return to play in less than a month, and that is the topic du jour on this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. The exciting thing? Baseball! In less than a month! The scary thing? The road ahead is fraught with complications as the COVID-19 outbreak rears its head again across the country. We talk abou…
 
After a couple of weeks away, the PDP returns aaaaaaaaand there's still no baseball. But maybe there will be soon. Or maybe not! It's a fun guessing game that changes every four seconds or so, so at least we have that to get us through the days! This week, we discuss the latest entanglements of MLB and the MLB Players Association in trying to figur…
 
The PDP is back for another week in this pandemic world of ours that includes no baseball and yet somehow a bunch of baseball news. This week on the show, we'll discuss the latest news in negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association from the owners' most recent pay proposal to the players' nearly imme…
 
On this week's episode of the PDP, Anthony and Tyler dive into the latest news surrounding a possible return of big league baseball to a stadium possibly near you? But without you or us or anyone else in attendance? But still that sounds good? If money issues don't derail the whole thing? And you don't for some reason sympathize with the owners ove…
 
Another week has come and gone, and your friendly neighborhood Colorado Rockies podcast is back to talk about the absence of baseball and such things. This week, we give you our All-Name teams in Rockies history and dive into the surprisingly extensive post-baseball professional life of Kit Pellow, the things we do to snap out of our isolation funk…
 
After a week away for *things* outside of PDP-land, your favorite neighborhood Colorado Rockies podcast returns to kick off the month of May. This week, we give you updates on the latest news around any possible big league season in 2020, the cancellation of this year's Hall of Fame Weekend (meaning Larry Walker has to wait until 2021, dagnabit), a…
 
We talk a lot about Shawn Estes in this episode for some reason. Remember Shawn Estes? He's back. In PDP form. On this week's edition of the show, we discuss MLB's participation in what seems like a fascinating study into how the COVID-19 virus has spread across the country and how that can help medical researchers and professionals plus we field y…
 
There's no baseball season. You're aware of that. But what you do hold in your hands right now is the newest edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, fresh out of the podcasting oven. Ope, don't bite yet! It's steaming hot! What? Anyway, we're losing our minds. But we're going to try to keep bringing you podcasts on a regular basis as we all slog th…
 
The 2020 season is on pause, but today would've been the Rockies' home opener against the Padres, so we bring you our version of today's #StayAtHomeOpener events. We'll discuss what we've been up to in this era of social distancing as well as field your #AskPDP questions on who we'd like to be quarantined with, how our dogs are doing, what four Col…
 
The world feels vastly different from when we last recorded an episode of your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast, and to be honest, we're not really sure what we're doing, much like the rest of society. But we're here to try to distract you for an hour-plus and maybe bring a smile to your face here or there. This week on the show, we welcome Rockie…
 
We haven't done a show in like three months, SO HERE IT IS, YOU UNGRATEFUL INGRATES. Just kidding, we love [most of] you. On this week's/month's episode, we try to break down what is going on with the Rockies offseason because nothing seems to be going on with the Rockies offseason! We figured we had nothing to talk about, and then we somehow talke…
 
As the title of our 180th episode may have clued you in, ANTHONY'S BABY IS NEARLY HERE. So this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast might be our last while the 2019 MLB season is still ongoing. We'll discuss the impending terror of fatherhood for one of our hosts while the other dissects the various bids he's received to take out a dead t…
 
The 2019 Colorado Rockies season has (mercifully) come to an end, but man the stories certainly haven't. In the first 48 hours after the conclusion to arguably the most disappointing season in franchise history, the Rockies announced an underwhelming extension of their extremely underwhelming TV deal that basically guarantees they'll still have amo…
 
We'll always have The Tim Melville Game. This week on your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast, we'll take a look at the unlikely road back to the big leagues for new cultural phenomenon Tim Melville. From a high draft pedigree and huge signing bonus to a being a journeyman prospect to working at a barbecue joint to independent ball to Chase Field on…
 
The Rockies have won exactly 10 games in the second half since the start of July, but they brought a new wrinkle into the season with the introduction of the Cucarachas...um...meme? Identity? Gag? We'll discuss what it means for where the clubhouse is right now as the Rockies try to salvage something from this season and what it could mean about wh…
 
The Rockies' season continues to slip away, and the boys of your favorite podcast are back to discuss as little of it as possible. Instead of re-crunching the numbers on what has gone wrong (basically everything), this week's show is heavy on your #AskPDP queries from how the Rockies can try to fix things over the offseason to kinds of dogs you'd r…
 
Well, here we are. The trade deadline is in the books. The Rockies are in last place. Apathy seems to be rampant among people who headed into this season full of hope that the Rockies would finally capture their first National League West championship in franchise history. There is major unrest in fans' perception of the front office. The clock is …
 
We've missed out on recording two out of the last three weeks, but it turns out that the Rockies have been playing absolutely terrible baseball, so maybe it was for the best. On this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, we begin with the news that former Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has announced his retirement from the game of baseb…
 
Your friendly neighborhood Colorado Rockies podcast is back and better than ever*! (*offer may not be valid or true) After our one week All-Star/illness hiatus, the PDP returns to get you set for the start of the second half. The Rockies floundered their way into the break on a six-game losing streak and now find three teams ahead of them in the Na…
 
Let's be honest: the Rockies' loss to the Dodgers on Thursday was frustrating. Their three-game sweep at the hands of the Dodgers last week -- on three straight walk-off losses -- was infuriating. They've lost an outlandish amount of ground in the National League West race and may well be playing for just another one-game playoff to decide their po…
 
The PDP is back for another week and with a new hosting service that means you might be listening to us on Spotify or a whole bunch of other places! And if you are, we thank you for doing so. And if you're not, why are you reading this? That seems like a weird use of your time. Anywho, on this week's episode of the show, we discuss the Rockies late…
 
With a Thursday night win over the Padres, your, my, and our Colorado Rockies have won 11 of their last 12 games at home and continue pushing themselves into second place in the National League West. A lot of stuff has been going right as of late. Charlie Blackmon is back to being Charlie Blackmon. Peter Lambert has been a terrific addition to the …
 
The PDP returns for another week of Colorado Rockies baseball and hopefully will actually upload to your podcast feeds on time this week! Today, we're discussing a bunch of different things in a shorter period of time because Anthony had to go to work. But maybe that'll actually be good because we had to stay on topic rather than doing, you know, l…
 
With six wins in the first seven games of a 10-game homestand, your, my, and our Colorado Rockies are back over the .500 mark for the first time since they were 2-1 starting the season in Miami. And the way they've gotten there? It's not...entirely clear. The offense has been good! The pitching has been not so good! But sometimes the pitching has b…
 
The Rockies have played pretty middle-of-the-road ball as of late. After starting the season nine games under the .500 mark through their first 15 games, they're five over ever since. Still, there isn't a lot going great at the moment, and there isn't a lot going terribly. On this week's episode of your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast, we discuss…
 
We had already planned to record the 166th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast on Thursday morning, and then we went into CRAZY HYPER URGENT MODE when the news broke that top Rockies prospect Brendan Rodgers is reportedly headed to the big leagues on Friday. What does it all mean, Basil? We'll look at what Rodgers' brilliant start to the 2019 se…
 
On this week's edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, Anthony and Tyler are in the same location where they are joined by Anthony's wife, Nicole, and Tyler's dog, Laika! Thanks to the folks at Chain Reaction Brewing Company, who unwittingly hosted this episode and provided no resources for it but still served us some delicious beverages for Episod…
 
Your, my, and our Colorado Rockies return from a seven-game road trip to open up a nine-game homestand this weekend at Coors Field, and they do so at 15-17 overall this year. Last year at this point? They were 17-15. So basically, what we're saying, is that 3-12 start to the year that had us all tearing our hair out and losing our minds has meant v…
 
Your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast is back for another week, and your favorite baseball team looks like a real baseball team again! After nabbing the series finale over the Nationals on Wednesday, the Rockies have now won eight of their last 10 games since a 3-12 start. Some of the reasons behind that include: a resurgent Nolan Arenado, Raimel …
 
For the first time this season, we bring you an episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast with your, my, and our Colorado Rockies on a winning streak. After literally the worst start in franchise history, the Rockies have now won three games in a row and return home playing their best ball of the young season. Nolan Arenado is finally getting his bat …
 
It's probably no stretch to say that this is the worst start to a season in Colorado Rockies franchise history, and that's because of one thing: expectations. It's also cool that SCIENCE released the first pictures ever taken of a black hole this week because that's pretty much what the 2019 baseball season has felt like so far. FEAR NOT, loyal lis…
 
Baseball returns to the Greatest Place on Earth (TM), Coors Field this weekend! That is the salve that cures all wounds which is good because the Rockies offense looked rather wounded the last week in Florida. It wasn't what you would call a great road trip through Miami and Tampa, but it also wasn't the abject disaster it felt like at one point. T…
 
Another season of baseball is upon us. The winds and cold of a winter past are behind us, and the green grass and blue skies of the summer await. At least until, like, mid-April when some annoying blizzard forces the Rockies to postpone a couple of games but whatever. The 2019 PDP Season Preview Episode is here! We'll break down the Rockies roster …
 
On this week's episode of your favorite Colorado Rockies podcast, we talk a whole lot of baseball-related things that aren't even the Colorado Rockies! Either we are sorry or you're welcome. This week's topics include Mike Trout's insane extension and a larger conversation about the changing economic realities of the game that have led to things li…

Yes, Manny Machado is now a Padre. Yes, one or two or three National League West teams are still in on Bryce Harper. Despite it all, Anthony and Tyler are oddly upbeat in the latest episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. On this week's edition of the show, we dive into Machado's deal and what it could mean for Nolan Arenado's extension situation w…
 
Less than a month remains until pitchers and catchers report to spring training, and YOUR Colorado Rockies have made one big (?) offseason move in signing noted controversy-free second baseman Daniel Murphy. In addition to not being a polarizing guy at all, he's going to be asked to play first base in Colorado, apparently, a position where he doesn…
 
You, the loyal PDP fan, have been clamoring for a new episode in recent weeks, so here we are. And it's great to be here to talk about...??????? The Rockies have done nothing but hire a hitting coach and acquire a couple of minor league catchers so far this offseason, so we'll attempt to make some lemonade out of those lemons. But really though, wh…
 
The 2018 Rockies season came to an end in disappointing fashion last week, and after taking some time to cool down, the PDP returns for its annual postmortem. We'll look back on the National League Division Series and try to dissect what went wrong against the Milwaukee Brewers. There isn't much left to discuss about the NLDS, though, so this episo…
 
Welp, here we are again. Come Sunday afternoon, the Colorado Rockies will -- yet again -- be playing for their 2018 lives after dropping their first two games of the National League Division Series in Milwaukee. To get you set for Game 3 at Coors Field, we've got a fiery PDP. It'll start with us yelling to (and with...and at) you about some of the …
 
For the first time in the PDP Era, as all things are and should be measured, the Rockies are on to a real postseason series, and what a way to get here. Kyle Freeland starred for 6 2/3 innings, Tony Wolters (!) (!!!) (Tony Wolters!) came through with a two-out, go-ahead single in the top of the 13th, and the Rockies took down the Chicago Cubs in Wr…
