This week on the podcast, we try to guess the final 25-man roster for the Dodgers for their National League Division Series against the Nationals.

The news of Adam Liberatore’s elbow surgery broke on Monday, which means Eric’s guess last week has no shot at getting all 25 players correct.

Our discussion broke down the full roster as players on or off the roster, or on the bubble. Listen to find out what we ended up with, but among the players discussed included Kiké Hernandez, Charlie Culberson, Austin Barnes, Luis Avilan, Josh Fields, and others.

Among the roster discussions was the possibility of, say, Micah Johnson as a designated pinch runner, which inspired our Play Index question, specifically the number of pinch runners used by the Dodgers this year (hint: it is a very small number).

Feel free to send us suggestions for future Play Index searches. Keep those Dodgers related, but any other questions can delve into any topics. Send all to tblapodcast@gmail.com, or contact us on Twitter at @truebluela or@jacobburch.
