Podcast: Struggling Dodgers, Utley's return

On Thursday’s fun Baseball Today podcast, SweetSpot blogger Dave Schoenfield and I delved into many interesting topics, from players being lost (and found!) to injury to an All-Star Game from our youth!

1. First the Yankees had to deal with the CC Sabathia disabled list stint, and then Andy Pettitte suffered a broken fibula when he was hit by a line drive. Can the Yankees overcome this?

2. The Dodgers still haven’t scored a run all week and the Giants certainly have, not only changing the NL West race but reminding people that it doesn’t take long for standings to be turned upside down.

3. The Phillies welcomed back Chase Utley and one of us was on hand for the fun. A certain relief pitcher was not much fun, however.

4. Our emailers are focused on Brandon Belt, Rangers fans and All-Star topics, and Dave shares thoughts from a midsummer classic he attended as a child!

5. It’s Trevor Bauer night! The hard-throwing right-hander is scheduled to make his big league debut, but he’s not the only interesting arm in action on this fine Thursday!

So download and listen to Thursday’s Baseball Today podcast and have a great day!
