After a mini-tangent by yours truly, we talk about that Yasiel Puig guy and how incredible he's been and will be.
Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford will be out until next month, which is just ducky.
Since we recorded episode 43 on June 11, we didn't get a chance to talk about the brawl with the Diamondbacks. We touch on it a bit.
Three 2012 draftees have all been promoted to Double-A. Duke von Schamann, Jharel Cotton and Ross Stripling are all pitching quite well. It's encouraging and exciting.
Julio Urias did Julio Urias things agian. Jared is trying to temper excitement while I'm all-in. Also, Jose Dominguez gets a couple minutes of notoriety.
Finally, we talk more about the 2013 MLB Draft (and a little about the 2014 draft) and how the Dodgers are dangerously close to losing next year's first-round selection.
Finally, we answer listener questions, which were solid this week. Please, keep them coming. And thank you folks for the reviews and ratings on iTunes. Please feel free to leave one if you haven't yet.
Also, Jared wants to get to 1,000 followers by the next recording. Give him a follow at @Dodger_Diamond.
