On the premiere episode of the Rox Pile Rockies Report Podcast, we discussed a popular topic of late for the Colorado Rockies: Is the Coors Field bias real for the Rockies?
We here at Rox Pile have decided to launch an official podcast dedicated to covering all aspects of the Colorado Rockies, hosted by the two co-experts of the site, Kevin Henry and myself, Noah Yingling.
In the podcast, we sometimes will have guests on, including some of our contributors and exclusive conversations with Rockies players and coaches as well.
We’ll also have some discussions on game related and non-game related topics. We also plan on keeping it fairly brief (15-20 minute range).

For our pilot episode, my co-expert and I discussed the possibility of Nolan Arenado ever being named the NL’s Most Valuable Player due to him playing half of his games at Coors Field.
We also discuss whether or not the Coors Field bias is starting to become something of the past due to a specific former Rockies player having success elsewhere.
Also, we discuss a specific tweet from Rockies beat writer Luke Zahlmann of Mile High Sports, who was in Cleveland at the All-Star Game and the “Coors Field” narrative. Is it the national media coverage for the Rockies that peddles the “Coors Field” narrative or is it the players as well?
We also discuss the past precedent of Larry Walker winning the award all the way back in 1997 and how it is a bit different.
Larry Walker and Todd Helton are on the Hall of Fame ballot and we examine how, perhaps, Coors Field has hurt them with the voting members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
You can currently check out the podcast here, on Spreaker.com and soon, you will be able to check out our podcast anywhere you find your podcasts so we hope that you enjoy it as much as we did in making it.
