The Dodgers get the job done during a 6-1 homestand that not only pulled them closer to the top in the division race, but also helped answer some potential postseason questions, particularly in the bullpen. Mainly, it proved that Alex Vesia has mostly transitioned himself from a J.A.G. to a dude in the backend of the ‘pen.
Trea Turner has been an absolute difference maker for LA, proving that this team really does need that true catalyst at the top of lineup. Plus love for Corey Seager, Brusdar Graterol, AJ Pollock, and even Kenley Jansen along with a bit of worry with Max Muncy, Justin Turner, and Will Smith.
Getting into Padres talk, the guys first ponder the question, which wild card team would we prefer to face if the path to October came down to that? San Diego or the Cincinnati Reds? Diving into the show Pads, we enjoy a chuckle over their misfortune since sweeping the Dodgers back in June. Also, will the Dodgers do that thing they do where they play poorly against the Padres? We discuss.
We also share our thoughts about the city connect uniforms, talk about Dodgers Nation’s annual staff game at the Stadium, and deliver the weekly softball team update.
