Episode 105 - We Got Rob Manfred to Apologize to a Trophy

Dodgers Nation: Blue Heaven Podcast show

Summary: Joined by our friend, and Dodgers Nation postgame host Doug McKain, there is so much to break down from a long weekend of arguments between players, teams, and the commissioner of Major League Baseball. After we jump into some comments and pay a few bills, Brook tears into the Astros storyline and we dig in way too much to the Jose Altuve tattoo narrative. It's seriously surprising how much people wanted to talk about the tattoo. And with the tattoo comes buzzer/no buzzer talk. The Astros punishment continues to be a laughing stock in baseball, and it led to a war of words between players all around the game. However, a huge focus has been on Cody Bellinger and Carlos Correa's back and forth and we look at how Correa set himself up for major failure. Next, Rob Manfred faced the media 3 times in 3 days and ultimately struck out each time. His most questionable comment turned out to be his de-valuation of the World Series trophy -- something that irked Justin Turner and other MLB stars. Additionally, the guys go all-in on the idea of precedence among other things. The question ultimately comes: is Manfred the worse commissioner in sports? And are the Astros now officially more hated than the Giants amongst Dodgers fans? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
