Purple Dinosaur Podcast opens a new chapter in our short history with our partnership with Purple Row, announced this week. We talk with Purple Row Head Honcho (that's his official title, we're pretty sure) Bryan Kilpatrick about what you can look forward to in this new era of awesomeness.
ROOT Sports reporter and host Jenny Cavnar joins the show from Arlington to look back at the Rockies' start to the season and look ahead to a tough looming road slate that includes two games against the Rangers starting tonight.
Plus, we chat with Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes about his crazy offseason, his terrific start to his Rockies career, and the next ink he'll be putting on an already impressive tattoo collection.
Episode 14 of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast is jam-packed with awesomeness for your earholes. We're talking Dodgers, Rockies, prospects, and the minor leagues with Craig Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. Then, Craig and Tyler commiserate on what it's like to be forced to know Anthony in real life. Things get heavy.
Plus, why on earth isn't Corey Dickerson getting an every day shot? Why does Atlanta's David Carpenter get a fine while the Rockies' Nick Masset gets a suspension resulting from last week's ballyhoo and brouhaha? How does Kirk Gibson still have a job? Which mascot would you take a cross-country road trip with? You know. The pressing issues of our time.
Also, we bid farewell to Mr. Padre.
Purple Dinosaur Podcast keeps plugging along despite the Rockies' atrocious May and June collapse. Colorado is 3-14 over its last 17 games since the demise of Nolan Arenado's exploding finger. Then came the last week. Eddie Butler's out. Michael Cuddyer's out. Carlos Gonzalez is out. Prospect Daniel Winkler is headed for Tommy John. Fun, right?
But on this week's show, WE PRESS ON, SO NEVER FEAR. Still some bright spots! Sorta! We'll hear from prospect Tyler Matzek ahead of his MLB debut Wednesday night against the Braves. Plus an interview with Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino, in which we ask him about the @OttavinoSlider twitter account, and much, much more!
Anthony and Tyler start out all super positive and 'Merica happy on this Fourth of July edition of the show. Then, we start talking Rockies, and things generally devolve from there.
Trade talks, uniform conversation, and a whole bunch of other nonsense follows. We discuss whether or not we need to start having the "how do they approach 2015" conversation. And then we have that conversation. So there's that.
But hey, next week, Jason Parks from Baseball Prospectus joins the show! So get excited for that!
We're tackling hard-hitting issues in Episode 11 of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, such as: what, exactly, is the second line behind "JOSIE'S ON A VACATION FAAAAR AAAWAY" in Charlie Blackmon's walk-up song?
Plus, we chat with Nick Groke about the Rockies' next move to solve issues in the back end of the rotation, including Tyler Matzek's prospects for a call-up, possible trade rumblings, and more.
It's a full-length episode this week! So, for that, we apologize for the hour and seven minutes you'll waste on it!
It's a good week to look to the future for observers of the Colorado Rockies. On Episode 12 of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, we're talking a lot of Eddie Butler, with the Rockies' top pitching prospect set for his big league debut on Friday against the Dodgers. Butler dominated the Double-A level this year, in his third professional season, and will take the rotation spot of Franklin Morales, who is headed to the bullpen.
Plus, we'll preview Thursday night's 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft with Purple Row's Bryan Kilpatrick and get a look at some of the possibilities on the Rockies' radar.
Finally, we look ahead to Saturday's bloggers/writers event at Breckenridge Brewery with Matthew Repplinger of the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).
Rosters have been announced for the 2014 MLB All-Star Futures Game, and just one Rockies prospect is among them. We discuss Rosell Herrera with Drew Creasman of PurpleRow.com. Plus, we'll banter about the start to the Short-Season Class A and Rookie campaigns as well as the Rockies' ability to somehow use a DOZEN starting pitchers before the season turns three months old. It's Episode 15 of the PDP! Come with us!

Children's chapter book authors, Cat Michaels (Finding Fuzzy) and Leigh Sheain (John Bloom) with illustrator Kate Shearin (Leigh's sister in law) join Bucky and Betty and Enzo "Tommie Cussy" Cannelinni for a fun filled frolic of three great friends. One from North Carolina: One from a farm in Upstate New York and one from the Granite State of New Hampshire. Listen in as we discover more about these artists and their mutual roads to fame. Leigh also owns a farm in Upstate New York and rasies chickens, pigs and klds (not necessarily in that order). Experience the story of how they met and nurtured and supported each other's projects.
Host Bob Whelan Guests Chris Lutz and Ted Harrison
An informative, humorous, sometimes a little raucous, good-time of myth busting and honest training information from the trenches. We strive to help everyone involved with old school strength training (without steroids) to not make some common training mistakes. Along with great information, you'll hear a fair share of steroid bashing, flamingo sightings, breaking goons, iron game history, honest drug-free training information from various leaders and strength coaches in the field and results! If your primary training information comes from reading "Muscle & Fiction" magazine we'll help get you straightened out. If you love high-intensity strength training, dinosaur style training and just like lifting heavy weights ... or loved Jack Lalanne, Sandow, Grimek, Peary Rader's old Iron Man magazine, Stuart McRobert's Hardgainer, Osmo Kiiha's The Iron Master, you will love the show.
We're taking a trip in the wayback machine on this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast.
Matthew Repplinger, president of the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) joins the show. We'll talk Denver baseball history, from the origins of the sport around the Mile High City to the Denver Post tournament glory days between the world wars and up to SABR's mission to mark home plate from Bears Stadium at Sports Authority Field at Mile High (which Tyler calls "Invesco Field at Mile High" in this episode because corporate naming rights are stupid.)
Plus, we chat about the similarities between the Rockies and Royals with Mike Vamosi of KingsofKauffman.com, from the difficulties of graduating top prospects, frugal ownership, and more.
We'll also discuss the Rockies' impending rotation decision on a struggling Franklin Morales, but that's depressing. Do with it what you will. Download and subscribe on iTunes and Stitcher, and tune in on PurpleRow.com!

My special guest is the actor ED GALE!
Ed left his hometown two years after graduating from Plainwell High School (Plainwell, Michigan) at the age of 20 with $41 in his pocket and hitched a ride California to pursue his dream of being not a "star", but a steady working Hollywood "actor". His very first experience in the "biz" was auditioning for and subsequently winning the lead role of Howard The Duck. Initially he was told "you are too tall" (he keeps that letter readily available in his living-room and often refers to it with a humble smile).
Early in his career, Ed had performed many of his own stunts such as being run over by a big rig, flying on wires, fight scenes, being tossed, thrown & dropped great distances, and crashing through the windshield of a moving vehicle. However, his most impressive stunts just might be his Full Body Burns in the first Child's Play movie and his Full Body Burn while "flying" on wires in Leprechaun 3.
Ed Gale has appeared in over 130 Television Shows, Films, and Commercials to date; playing some of Hollywood's most famous (and infamous) characters such as "Howard" in the movie Howard The Duck; "Chucky" in Child's Play, Child's Play 2, and the Bride of Chucky; "Birdie the Early Bird" in one of the very few McDonland's commercials in which "Birdie" actually flew; "Tasha" (the baby dinosaur in the ABC Saturday morning kids show The New Land of the Lost; and the "The Mole" in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Other popular films to Ed Gale's credit include; Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Mom & Dad Save the World, and the Christmas Holiday Hit: the Polar Express.
