Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 109 – Ross Stripling, Moncada, prospects

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and welcome Dodgers’ prospect Ross Stripling back to the show. He appeared way back on episode No. 22.

After another fantastic interview, we talk a lot about prospects — specifically, my Top 10 list. Jared actually paid me some compliments, despite it being “all wrong.”

Everyone wanted to know about Yoan Moncada, and to a lesser extent, Hector Olivera (post on him here tomorrow). We don’t see any reason for the Dodgers to hold back when trying to sign him. Moncada is a perfect fit for this team when he’s ready in 18 to 24 months.

Finally, we finish with a Q&A session. A lot about Moncada, a lot about the starting pitcher situation after Brandon McCarthy and Brett Anderson. I’m less worried about McCarthy, but Anderson will get hurt. Luckily, the Dodgers have some decent depth in the high minors.
