I really hate watching the Rockies. There isn’t a significant rivalry and I think it’s safe to say that both fanbases feel like they are on the outside looking in to the central fight of the division: SF vs LA.
However, we have to play each other a lot and it feels very useful to understand what’s going on in Rockies World. Last week the Locked On Padres podcast (Javier Reyes) did a joint recording with the Locked On Rockies (Paul Holden) and talked about the state of each other’s team.
Technically Paul was in the driver seat as the host and they shared publishing it on each other’s feeds, but it was a fun listen between two people who have been through a lot as baseball fans and have shared the Bud Black experience.
For 35 minutes they dug into the upcoming series at Petco, Connor Joe’s story, Manny’s MVP case, Mackenzie Gore rookie splash as a dependable starter, and much more.
I’m a big fan of the model the Locked On Podcast Network uses and this is my favorite
