 Episode 266 – Dodgers Welcome the Braves, Is the Starting Pitching Actually Good? Roster Crunch & More | Blue Heaven Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3899

After a doom-and-gloom-feeling first regular season episode last week, the vibes have changed following a 6 game winning streak from the Dodgers. With Brook out at Dodger Stadium this week, we tag Doug McKain as the spot starters as we look into an unexpected strength for LA... the starting rotation. Heading into spring training and the season, the narrative was that the Dodgers starting rotation would be a glaring weakness. However, through the first 9 games of the season, it's been one of the best in baseball. We discuss how much we should believe this small sample size. Next, we look ahead to the Braves series and wonder if these restocked franchises could be heading toward a third straight postseason matchup this October. Plus, the return of reliever Phil Bickford opens up a Pandora's Box for the Dodger front office and active roster over the next few weeks. Yes, a roster crunch is a-coming.

The much-hyped Dodgers fell flat on their faces to open the season. The obvious question is, do we worry or is there some blame on opening the season at the evil Coors Field. Some fans are in panic mode but we're here to play some version of cooler heads prevailing. We do take a mini dive into Mookie Betts' struggles and give props to our favorite Dodger, Gavin Lux.

Astros' cheater Josh Reddick butted in to a conversation about the sign stealing scandal and Brook has some words about it.
