 Episode 256 – Too Early Opening Day Roster Predictions, Spicy Wings Ruin Brook | Blue Heaven Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3089

The Dodgers' scheduled opening day date inches closer while Major League Baseball and the MLBPA meet to work on a new collective bargaining agreement. In protest... or because there's still no baseball technically in sight, the Blue Heaven boys burn their insides with very spicy wings. At least on the live stream/video side of things. On the audio podcast, we react to the wing gauntlet after ruining Brook's life. In a better, more Dodgers-centric topic, the guys along with 3 Up, 3 Down's Eric Eulau take their first crack at way too early opening day roster predictions. The biggest questions? Will Brusdar Graterol be an odd man out if the team makes another free agent signing? Does David Price have any role in 2022? Is this finally the year Tony Gonsolin shines as a full-time starter? Plus reactions to the new spring training hats which are fitted trucker hats, two things that don't go together. And accepting advertisements on MLB uniforms. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Later, in news we don't really want to talk about, Trevor Bauer was not hit with criminal charges stemming from assault allegations. There are some thoughts on the matter and discussion on what comes next.  Finally, in a podcast audio-only exclusive, we share our thoughts on the idea of a shared LA make up parade following the Rams Super Bowl 56 win.

We catch up on all the latest between the league and Max Scherzer and dozens of other players who took to the net to voice their frustration with owners after not hold up their end of the bargain. Plus words from Rich Hill on the generally terrible Rob Manfred. But first, the Dodgers farm system was ranked number 1 by Keith Law. Of course this comes one week after our interview with top pitching prospect Ryan Pepiot, so the Blue Heaven magic continues into 2022. There was a Clayton Kershaw update of sorts from team physician Dr. Neal El Attrache who had both good and not so good news. Next, former Dodger, and friend of the show, Adrian Gonzalez officially announced his retirement so we look back on the difference maker of a trade that got him to LA nearly a decade ago.

Ryan pulls back the curtain on the important things like lessons learned in 2021, any nicknames coming up to the big leagues with him, and the ever-important question... is a hotdog a sandwich.

 Episode 250 – Talkin' Dodgers: Kershaw, Kenley, Pujols, Greinke, Lux, Manfred Slander, & More; 2022 Debut! | Blue Heaven Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4068

With that, we talk about the latest on Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen via am570's Dave Vassegh. Once again, the argument is made that perhaps it would best serve Kershaw to sit out the first month or two of the new season in an effort to completely heal and, mainly, be fresh down the stretch. On the Kenley front, we wonder if it makes sense for him to want to return to LA for 2022. It wouldn't be an offseason podcast without our latest thoughts on Freddie Freeman and whether he could actually become a Dodger in 2022. Perhaps the extended lockout downtime gives him a chance to look beyond Atlanta for the next chapter of his career. We also talk Albert Pujols, who fans in the comments seem to really want back in Dodger blue in 2022. The counter argument is don't let him tarnish the legacy he built in his short time in LA. And we once again talk Zack Greinke -- although for the first time on Blue Heaven -- and list the reasons why he makes a lot sense for the rotation this season. Plus, could a Gavin Lux trade be the path to another massive blockbuster deal for Andrew Friedman? And, of course, our latest MLB lockout thoughts and Rob Manfred slander.

With not much to talk about baseball wise thanks to the lockout, the guys devolve into a somewhat open forum that mostly doesn't involve Dodger talk. So, if you're not fans of the guys and don't enjoy jovial fellas hanging out on a podcast with you, this episode is very much mostly not for you. Still, there is some Dodger discussion, including Walker Buehler's wedding invitees and a bit on spring training. Plus a full segment featuring a group discussion on who we all consider to be Dodgers hall of famers since the year 2000. Clayton Kershaw is certainly on the list, but we name five more recent legends. Plus a giveaway with our friends at Elite Sports Collectibles. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

We dive into limitations for MLB 40-man rostered players and take a look at what about these two sides are fighting over. Plus, some classic Rob Manfred bashing. Next, we recap the latest Dodgers rumors on the hot stove and welcome Chris Taylor back home where he belongs. And, Gary Sheffield's son picked a strange fight with CT3's contract so we took time to laugh at the relatively unaccomplished internet troll.
