Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 21 - Dodgers, RSN, signings, prospects

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (L.A. Dugout) and I discuss -- once again -- the television and regional sports network deal the Dodgers have agreed to with Time Warner Cable. The deal is reportedly for $7 billion over 25 years. Or, if you believe what I said in the podcast (twice), $25 billion for seven years.

This seems like a repeat, but the Dodgers keep signing international prospects. As such, we continue to talk about said signings. This time, it's Michael Medina and Carlos Aquino.

We also analyze Baseball America's Top 10 prospect list, as well as Baseball Prospectus' Top 10.

Finally, we close with listener questions, at which point I shit the bed again (it was a long day). Is Yasiel Puig's character a concern? Why don't the Dodgers give Alex Castellanos a shot at the fourth outfielder job? And my favorite question: Is there any chance of Ross Porter returning to the broadcast booth?

Be sure to tune in next week (episode 22) when we'll have another special guest. Jared asked me to keep this one quiet, but we'll announce it soon.

  1. On the RSN part where you guys were talking about the Dodgers have partial ownership but actually, they will own the channel. I talked about that a little bit over at Chad's blog:
