The Dodgers and the Padres are back at it again one week later and both have their fair share of concerns. Injuries are piling up for both clubs, but the schedule stops for no one! Today, we examine the budding rivalry with ESPN broadcaster Jason Benetti, who will call play-by-play on a special Statcast broadcast on Sunday.
Diving into the teams, we look at some recent and season numbers for both ballclubs, with a focus on the pitching staff. Plus, Brook goes off on San Diego triple-a pitcher Chris Paddack — much to everyone’s enjoyment — once again.
Next, we talk about LA’s struggles against left-handed pitching and wonder if the front office should have tried a bit harder for that right-handed batter they were looking for in the offseason.
Finally, before taking some time to have some personal fun with the live stream audience, we laugh at one baseball fan’s petition to disband the Dodgers for being too good.
