Episode 198 – Albert Pujols in Blue! New Roster, Who Dis? | Blue Heaven Podcast

Dodgers Nation: Blue Heaven Podcast show

Summary: Albert Pujols is a Los Angeles Dodger. Wild times are upon us at Chavez Ravine. Along with Pujols, Andrew Friedman brought in Utility man Yoshi Tsutsugo from Tampa Bay (of course) as the Dodgers look to rebuild a weak bench core that -- beyond Matt Beaty -- has largely been ineffective through the first 40ish games of the season. The guys react to the moves and dive into the good and the bad that come with Albert and Yoshi-san. While both players offer a lot of upside, with one you get an aged veteran with defensive shortcomings and the other a player that has struggled to hit major league pitching. Next, the Dodgers will be without the services of shortstop Corey Seager for a stretch after suffering a broken right hand. Seags joins 11 others currently on the IL for LA which begs the question... what did we do wrong? Did the team sell its soul for that 2020 title? Finally, we look ahead at the first matchup of the season against the Arizona Diamondbacks who, let's face it, are a struggle bus of a team. Learn more about your ad choices.
