As we approach opening day for the 2022 season, the Dodgers send fan favorite AJ Pollock out of town for long-time nemesis and closer Craig Kimbrel. We review the blockbuster move and address the question of why the team just didn’t re-sign Kenley Jansen if this is what they wanted. And, with Pollock gone, what happens in left field? Plus an updated look at the potential opening day roster four days until opening day.
Astros’ cheater Josh Reddick butted in to a conversation about the sign stealing scandal and Brook has some words about it.
Next, the Padres made a huge splash of their own as the club acquired veteran starter Sean Manaea from the Athletics. We discuss whether the move reshaped the NL West, bringing San Diego a step closer to the Dodgers.
Finally, some thoughts on the new rule in MLB that has umpires mic’d up on the field.
