The Dodgers are in the playoffs for the eighth year in a row, and closing in on another division title as well. This week on the podcast, we look back on the series with the Padres in San Diego, that was both exciting and somewhat muted given the disincentives of this year’s playoff format.
We looked at where the pitching is at with a little over a week to go in the regular season, and what current experiments might be deployed in October.
This week we look back at Garey Ingram, who, before Keibert Ruiz this season, was the last Dodger to hit a home run in his first major league at-bat. He is linked to Dodgers rewinds of the recent past Rafael Bournigal and Jose Offerman, and given when Ingram was drafted, he relates somewhat to Zach McKinstry, the latest player from LA’s 2016 draft to play in the majors.
