This week on the podcast, a look at the topsy-turvy Dodgers starting rotation, including Ross Stripling pitching like an All-Star and Walker Buehler indispensable.

Clayton Kershaw is hurt again and four-fifths of the rotation is on the disabled list. We have not one, but two major league debuts in a week in Caleb Ferguson and Dennis Santana, and this was recorded before Santana injured his lat and was scratched on Thursday.

All that, plus the great surprises on offense of Matt Kemp and Max Muncy, and the long climb back to .500. That, and much more.

As mentioned in the podcast, here is a link to David Hood’s profile of Ferguson before his Wednesday start.
