Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 116 – Hot start (MLB/MiLB), July 2

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I catch up on the first two weeks of Dodger baseball. Man, this team looks strong.

The offense is off to a hot start, which is good because the starting rotation hasn’t been as sharp as we expected. That isn’t to say it hasn’t been good, but it just hasn’t been great.

Some players are off to great starts (Adrian Gonzalez, Howie Kendrick, Joc Pederson) and some have struggled a bit (Juan Uribe), which has prompted for the masses to call for Alex Guerrero (a.k.a. The Second Coming) to start at third base.

The minor-league teams are off to great starts, too. All of them are playing better than .500 ball and the depth in the organization is undeniable.

Reports are the Dodgers are going to go crazy on July 2, and we touch on that. I’ll have the written version of this later this week.

Finally, we close with a strong Q&A session. Lots of good ones, so keep them coming.
