The Colorado Rockies have a problem. A good problem. Lots of talent and little places to play that talent.

One of those talents is Ryan McMahon, who will start on the Rockies MLB roster, however on the bench as the season starts Thursday.

Chatting about the Rockies upcoming season with Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7 is former Rockie Jason Hirsh, who chats about where McMahon falls into the mix, next to first baseman Ian Desmond.

Hirsh also dishes on the starting rotation and who may emerge as the ace this year.
