For this week’s episode, Sami was joined by Sam Bradfield who is the assistant editor covering the Colorado Rockies over at Purple Row. For transparency’s sake, this was recorded last Friday night, so it will not involve any news that may have broken between then and now.
Sam talks about how growing up in both cities has given her her dual loyalties for the Rockies and division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks. We talk about how she got into covering the Rockies and their farm system, including the Pebble Report, which is just the cutest name for minor league coverage ever and you can follow it over on Purple Row, as well as the two Purple Row podcasts she works on.
As a huge Troy Tulowitzki fan, Sam shares her thoughts on his retirement announcement, and she also shares a delightful story about the time she asked almost every member of the Rockies organization which musical instruments they have played, if any. So if you ever wanted to know which instrument Nolan Arenado played in school to use against him the next time the Rockies come to town, this is the episode for you!
