Austin Barnes and Tyler White Talk, plus Trade Deadline! | Trade Deadline and Bye Bye Barnes with Michael Duarte – Episode 69 | Blue Heaven Podcast

Joined by our long time friend of the show Michael Duarte, and his doggo Mellow Yellow, we hit all the hot Dodger off-day topics.

Long time Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes was sent to AAA. The team made a trade for somebody you’ve likely barely heard of. They’re linked to Mets ace Noah Syndergaard… things are getting weird and fun ahead of the MLB trade deadline. Joined by NBC LA reporter Michael Duarte, we go hard in for the final week before the deadline.

Also on today’s show:

  • Bye Bye Barnes
  • What is a “Tyler White?”
  • Blue Thors-day
  • And what is San Francisco doing?


NBC LA reporter Michael Duarte joins Blue Heaven for the first time in a long time, and is as locked in as ever with tidbits and goodies. Leading off the show, Brook gets his wish… Dodgers Nation gets its wish… Austin Barnes was optioned to the minor leagues and Will Smith SZN is here.

Along with the move, the Dodgers also are the clubhouse leaders for the trade deadline so far when they picked up a dude called Tyler White. We try to place where he fits in with this Dodgers team.

Plus, plenty of talk on Giants pitchers, relief arms being targeted around baseball, and will Noah Syndergaard ever rock Dodger blue?

Jam packed with an extra HOUR of bonus material!
