Dodgers Defensive Struggles, Bellinger Issues, A Trade Deadline Outlook, & More | Blue Heaven Podcast

The Dodgers just miss out on sweeping the Rockies in Colorado. That lone loss, however, exposed a few recurring concerns with this 2021 version of the team. Defensive issues lead the way, but there are some bullpen issues and Cody Bellinger issues mixed in there.

Joined by our friend Doug McKain, we dive into the biggest questions on our minds heading into a huge series with the division leading Giants.


In greater Dodgers news, things were busy on Monday with Mookie Betts being scratched, Gavin Lux hitting the injured list for what sounds like a while, and some other moves and notes. We look at what’s on the horizon roster wise with Corey Seager, Josiah Gray, Jimmy Nelson and more.

Getting deeper into the Giants series, we talk about how real San Francisco is and how Farhan Zaidi likely built something he didn’t expect with this team.

Finally, some trade deadline outlook where we discuss whether or not we think the Dodgers will actually make a big move before July 30th, or something less bold.

  1. With regard to re-signing Poljos, if the NL adopts the DH next year, the decision is a little easier. Not sure if MLB adds another roster spot to teams. He can still play some 1st base, so there’s a chance for other guys to DH when he in the field. The Dodgers have made good use of veteran bench players like Utley and Freese, so now it’s Alberts turn.

  2. watching albert run is painful. He’ll have to drop his salary big time to get the Dodgers to resign him for 2022. If there is a 2022 season and if the NL adopts the DH, I see that going to JT. albert is wisely used only against lefty pitching, the Dodgers weakness on offense; let’s focus and enjoy 2021, and a Dodger repeat!
