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 virtually nothing. It also means that they're trending in a terrific direction as they return home for this season-long homestand. The Rockies have won 12 of their last 17 games and arrive at Coors Field with 22 runs over their last 18 innings, finishing off their seven-game swing away from Denver with two straight wins over the Milwaukee Brewers. A lot of things are headed in the right direction for this team, including its continued hot bats and steady enough starting pitching. There are still points to discuss with some areas of concern. Though Ian Desmond has shown improvement in certain categories, his overall numbers are still quite bad. With Raimel Tapia's ascension, has Desmond been relegated to platoon status? Tyler Anderson has scuffled mightily this season. As he gets the ball to kick off this nine-game homestand, is he pitching for his job? Who could potentially fill his spot if the Rockies have to make a change in the rotation? Plus, we take your #AskPDP questions on everything from a sequel to the Toddfather commercial to the Mount Rushmore of Denver sports to when Brendan Rodgers might make the climb to Denver. All that and more is here with the 164th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Use it to dig the mud out of your spikes if you're pitching on a rainy day!
