RIP Rich Hill, Final Astros Thoughts, Hot Stove Media Manipulation, and More!| Blue Heaven Podcast

Episode 90 – “I’ll Take the Title and Show Up For the Parade”

With DN postgame host Doug McKain in the house, the Blue Heaven boys are talking Rich Hill’s injury and more thoughts on the Astros scandal (with some help from Dodgers players). Plus we go off on why you shouldn’t believe everything you read during hot stove time, and some reasons we’re thankful to be Dodger fans.

On today’s show:

  • Rich Hill’s Future
  • A Positive Spin on the Astros Scandal
  • MLB’s Cold Stove
  • Dodgers Headlines
  • What are we Thankful For?


With Rich Hill having undergone a major elbow operation, does that guide him back to the LA on the cheap, or should we let him ride off into the sunset?

Having Doug McKain in the house with us, we had to get his take on the Astros scandal. Along the way, we hear from Ross Stripling and Joc Pederson and their takes on Houston. Plus a re-creation of Austin Barnes’ new favorite knock-knock joke.

In the MLB cold stove, Brook is REALLY unhappy with Travis d’Arnaud’s new contract with Hotlanta, and Yasmani went and got paid as we wonder why Grandal was such a hated player with the Dodgers. 

With weak tweets and rumors popping up during the coldest point of the hot stove, Clint and Gary caution fans to read too much into everything they see. 

As we parse through headlines, Dodgers play by play man Joe Davis gave us great opening day news, but MLB commissioner is behind minor league news that gave everyone mixed feelings.

Finally, everyone shares one thing they’re thankful for as Dodgers fans ahead of Thanksgiving.
