In this week’s roundtable, Clint navigates the panel through the latest in Dodgers Nation. The big topic focuses on LA’s up-and-down offense and incredibly weak bench. The panel of analysts this week includes Doug, Brook, and Eric via Zoom. Together, we look at how the bats can improve and whether help really can come from outside of the organization via trade. Looking at you, JD Martinez?
Plus, once Mookie Betts returns, does the red hot Trea Turner drop from the leadoff spot? Doug says hold on… look at the numbers.
Trea Turner batting leadoff:
? 1.063 OPS, .452 wOBA, 196 wRC+
Trea batting third:
?.797 OPS, .331 wOBA, 124 wRC+
When you consider the uptick in Mookie's power numbers this year, it might be best for the Dodgers to try a Trea, Freddie, Mookie top of the order.

Next, the guys are tasked with picking just four Dodgers to represent the team in the All-Star Game in July. It’s harder than you think!
And finally, we look ahead to the four game extended weekend set against the Padres where, once again, the question is asked… is this a rivalry yet? Eric argues, by definition, it is, in fact, a rivalry.
