SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Mike Zimmer had this to say about playing at a high altitude in Denver and how it might affect player rotations: “As I told my team, scientifically when you’re out there for 24 hours it really is no factor. We want to continue to use our team that way. Guys that earn the right to play, that deserve to play, continue to play because we want to be a deep team.” Any altitude experts out there want to weigh in?
