Dodgers, Astros Series Preview, Talking Cody, Broken Rotation and More, with ESPN’s Buster Olney | Blue Heaven Podcast

Ok, we’re owning up to it… we might have to accept the self-accusations of being guilty of a bit of hubris. Earlier in the week, we looked in the rearview mirror at the Padres while the Dodgers were simply charging up for the playoffs. Three days later, things aren’t so peachy for Los Angeles.


The rotation is down two arms after Dustin May took a liner off the foot and Walker Buehler hit the IL again with a nagging blister issue. Focusing on Buehler, we welcome first-timer friend of the show, ESPN’s Buster Olney to assess where the Dodgers are, and where they might be with Walker come October.

Additionally, we hear from MLB experts through Olney their thoughts on what is going on with slugger Cody Bellinger. Finally, we preview the weekend series against the Astros and look at how this is a very different club than LA faced at the end of July.

  1. Again, I mention this stuff before, something wrong with Beuhler, bits and pieces of the Dodger puzzle wasn’t in the right place. I started with the pitching line up, I had a different one. The batting line up should have been changed as soon as they saw problems. They tend to play their multi-millionaires whether they’re doing the job or not. Unless the Dodgers get back to their old form and stay there they will have to depend on another 1988 miracle season. I’m not the only one that thinks the Dodgers have made too many changes in the last 20 years or so. I loved the old type of Dodger. The Dodgers of today don’t base steal, run and hit, hit & run, bunt, have the ability to surprise the enemy. Years ago I mentioned something that only one other person mentioned about the same time, that person was a baseball team owner. We said the players should play for incentives. Have a starting pay of what they’re minimal pay is and earn more money as you go. We’ve seen too many players get paid for past performance and fail the following year and after. Some players do everything for the game and the team but I believe many just go for the money and then cruise. They get big heads and think it doesn’t matter how well they do because they have their contract.
