Dodgers Impress at Home, All-Star Reactions and Snubs, Friedman Talks Trade Deadline | Blue Heaven Podcast

We’ve passed the mid-season mark and despite a mountain of things not going the right way, the Dodgers continue to impress in the NL West and beyond. The guys look back at a successful 10-1 homestand and an unlikely Sunday come-from-behind win that elicited visions of the 2017 Dodgers team.

Next, the rosters dropped for the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium and LA is well represented with four players on the NL team. However, four just might not be quite enough when taking a closer look. We identify five All-Star snubs including Will Smith, Freddie Freeman, and Julio Urias. Plus, for the sake of playing with fire, should Tyler Anderson have gotten an ASG nod over Clayton Kershaw?


Finally, the big stuff. Andrew Friedman came out of hiding and gave some hot nuggets to The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya. Friedman talked about LA’s thinking heading toward the 2022 trade deadline and we argue that — smartly — his words were likely more lip service than anything else.

Plus, road trip win/loss predictions and more!
