Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 121 – Uribear, Puig, De Leon, Bellinger, draft

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I lament over the fact Juan Uribe is no longer a Dodger. If this were three years ago, we’d have been celebrating. Papi is awesome.

The offense is still not clicking like it was the first 5-6 weeks of the season, but it was nice to Yasmani Grandal pop that 3-run homer in St. Louis. That series also featured some poor umpiring and A.J. Ellis (!) of all players getting ejected. #robotumpsnow

Despite the rough stretch, the Dodgers are still on pace to win 95-96 games, so the sky still isn’t falling. Still, the Dodgers could benefit from one Yasiel Puig coming back (hopefully soon), no matter what some clickbait column in the big Los Angeles paper would have you think.

In the minors, Corey Seager had a 6-hit game in Triple-A, Jose De Leon was (again) dominant in Double-A and Cody Bellinger (my boy! And not in the Chris Reed way) is on fire in High-A. Jharel Cotton also made his season debut after an early injury in spring training.

The MLB Draft is one week from today. We delve into some of the options the Dodgers could have at picks No. 24 and 35.

To close, we answer your questions. Please keep them coming.
