 Episode 266 – Dodgers Welcome the Braves, Is the Starting Pitching Actually Good? Roster Crunch & More | Blue Heaven Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3914

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.

We review the blockbuster move and address the question of why the team just didn't re-sign Kenley Jansen if this is what they wanted. And, with Pollock gone, what happens in left field? Plus an updated look at the potential opening day roster four days until opening day. Astros' cheater Josh Reddick butted in to a conversation about the sign stealing scandal and Brook has some words about it. Next, the Padres made a huge splash of their own as the club acquired veteran starter Sean Manaea from the Athletics. We discuss whether the move reshaped the NL West, bringing San Diego a step closer to the Dodgers. We're Giving Away a Replica World Series Trophy! Learn more about your ad choices.
