Relating to Will Smith’s Issues, Booing Hurts, and More! | Russell Martin’s Fault with Brett Tomko – Episode 79 | Blue Heaven Podcast

For the first time in Blue Heaven history, a person that won 100 MLB games becomes a friend of the show. 14 season MLB veteran, and former Dodger Brett Tomko joins us to look at a lot of things ahead of the postseason. Plus he gives us the player’s perspective on a number of topics including getting booed by the home fans.

Also on the show:
– Dave Roberts’ managerial limitations
– Will Smith’s conundrum with a veteran pitching staff
– The Dodger Dudes podcast on the Bleav network, his new show


We explore the upcoming playoffs, and the dangers of the 5 game “short series” round… Clint brings up the 2006 Dodgers vs Mets — a team Brett was on — as an example. Plus we get a “Dodger Dude’s” thoughts on the big team to worry about in the National League.

Among other points early on, Tomko gives us actual real life experience about the differences in the pitcher/catcher relationship, and we relate to the Will Smith/Hyun-Jin Ryu/pitching staff struggle narrative of the last few weeks.

Dabbling around Brett’s time in the bigs, and with the Dodgers, we also learned that players may not have as thick of skin as they let on.

Dodger fans of recent vintage are spoiled, but we remind people that it’s not always that way. Plus we assess Dave Roberts’ mindset heading toward potential World Series take 3 and how things aren’t always 100% in his control.

Finally, we dive into Brett’s podcast — The Dodger Dudes on the Bleav Network — and how he got into the game thanks to another friend of the show.

A big thanks to Brett for joining us in studio!
