2/23/2021
The last episode without real-life baseball until November! The guys dig into a couple of the big questions for the Dodgers -- which are admittedly hard to find -- heading into Cactus League play this weekend. The first big point of topic: what is the plan for the catching position? Will Smith is among the best catchers in the game, at least offensively. On the other hand, Austin Barnes is a top-tier defender. We throw to Dave Roberts and get his thoughts on what fans may see behind the...

Episode 178 – Dodgers: New Rotation, New Balls, Who Dis? | Blue Heaven Podcast

2/9/2021
The Dodgers added the top free agent starter on the market to the team last week, building on the excess of excess starting pitching at their disposal. With Trevor Bauer in tow, Dave Roberts has a lot of "good to have" problems to sort through before opening day. Including in the bullpen. So if the pitching staff is overloaded, should the club look to trade from an area of depth to a) trim payroll and b) potentially fill the opening at third base if Justin Turner doesn't come back? We dive...
