Dodgers Ace Gonsolin, How Long Do We Deal with Kimbrel and More | Blue Heaven Podcast

In a busy and jumbled edition of the Blue Heaven podcast, Clint and Brook catch up on a week plus a day‘s worth of Dodgers baseball. Mookie Betts is out with a rib injury and the team bypassed all internal options for outside help in old friend Trayce Thompson.

The guys disagree on what the next few weeks in blue might look like for the veteran outfielder.


Next, we look at the scorching hot Tony Gonsolin who on Tuesday picked up his league-leading 9th victory. While an All-Star game berth feels like a foregone conclusion at this point, we wonder aloud whether the new staff ace should actually consider skipping the game for the greater good. We throwback and cite former Dodger and friend of the show Ross Stripling’s 2019 appearance with Blue Heaven where he admitted to being gassed in his 2018 All-Star season and re-thinking pitching in that exhibition.

At any rate, while Tony Gonsolin is firmly in the hot part of “Who’s Hot, Who’s Not,” closer Craig Kimbrel is absolutely on the other end of the spectrum. We look at Kimbrel’s seemingly bad luck season with the Dodgers and rhetorically ask how long is too long to hold out hope that a player can ‘figure it out’.

Plus a look ahead at the 9 game road trip that passes through Atlanta and ends in the evil Colorado.
