This morning’s Leading Off with True Blue LA podcast feels woefully insignificant at the moment, as it was recorded almost entirely before the news of Vin Scully’s death.

We’ll have a Vin episode of The Lineup podcast in a few days, but for now, here is a quick recap of the Dodgers trade deadline, which was just Joey Gallo and Chris Martin on the surface, plus three roster-clearing trades.

But it was also about a team operating as a team with an enormous lead, and not paying what they thought were high prices on the trade market for now. It was also about betting on a group of injured players, or at least a few select folks, returning in the coming weeks.

And it was about Miguel Vargas getting called up to the majors for the first time.
