Dodgers: Salty Dave Caves, Mookie’s Hidden Impact, We Fixed Barnesy?? | Blue Heaven Podcast (Dodgers Nation)



The hashtag #SaltyDave made it’s way around Twitter after Dave Roberts hit a boiling point with questions about his lineup decisions. After a tense Zoom call with local media, Doc finally caved and gave in to the pressure and let Mookie Betts hit leadoff full time. The Dodgers haven’t lost since.

Listen

With Dave out of his own way, Mookie found another way to help as Austin Barnes personal hitting coach. Sort of. We talk about the resurgent Real AB and the new catching conundrum the Dodgers are facing behind the plate with rookie Keibert Ruiz in the big leagues. We turn to Dodgers Nation’s prospects expert SDDodger Tim Rogers to learn all about the new kid in town.

And finally, with the trade deadline two weeks away, we wonder if the Dodgers have any real needs to fill from outside of the organization.
