A look back at the Dodgers finishing off the NLDS in Atlanta, plus a look ahead at the NLCS. Among the topics we discuss on this episode:

  • In-season trade pickups Manny Machado and David Freese making their marks
  • A look at potential roster changes. Ross Stripling seems to be the most likely change, if any, and he talked with Bill Plunkett about correcting a flaw in his delivery.
  • The Dodgers rotation, including Clayton Kershaw starting in Game 1 on Friday
  • Joc Pederson‘s unique hitting streak
  • Yasmani Grandal‘s postseason numbers in a historical context (hat tip to Jon Weisman)
  • A look at the heavily-used Brewers bullpen
  • We recorded this before Milwaukee announced its rotation for the first few games: Gio Gonzalez in Game 1, Wade Miley in Game 2, and Jhoulys Chacin in Game 3
