Some of the most honest and real conversations I have had with a Rockies player about strategy and the game’s changing outlook as the contest has gone along has been with infielder Ryan McMahon. Versatile enough to play first, second, or third, McMahon has never shied away from the press, pregame or postgame.
RyMac also has a great personality and way of talking that makes him very relatable. We’re thinking to give him a microphone and a way to talk baseball and life in general during some of the games would be fantastic.

Now here’s an interesting question. As an outfielder, Charlie Blackmon has time to react while answering a question. An infielder like McMahon is obviously closer to the plate and gets the ball coming at him a lot faster than Blackmon. Would a conversation became a distraction that could become dangerous for an infielder? It’s something to think about.
However, if RyMac could be mic’d up at the plate or between innings, sign me up for that. I always learn something after talking to him in the clubhouse and I think a lot of baseball fans would feel the same way.
