This week on the podcast we take a stab at sorting out the Dodgers bullpen come postseason. But with a set top three in the rotation, this really is an exercise of filling out those final eight or (likely) nine other slots.

The consensus is clear that the Dodgers will add a relief pitcher or two by the July 31 trade deadline, so we look at four rumored targets and how they might fit. At the very least, three of them present a pitch mix that would fit in quite nicely to the Dodgers bullpen.

Oh also, which catcher will those pitchers be throwing to in October?
