Hello baseball fans, and welcome back to another edition of the Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast.After a bit of a long break, Chris and Matt are back to talk baseball, and they have a trade to start their show with. The Dodgers acquired catcher Carlos Ruiz from the Phillies and got rid of their own catcher, AJ Ellis in the deal. Ellis and ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw had quite the history together, making this move a little odd. The guys break it down, and talk about the impact it could have on the team.

Then they switch gears, and talked about the Arizona Diamondbacks and the swirling rumors around their front office. Both guys feel that change may be in order, but having a plan and sticking to it is best for the long-term future of the D-Backs.

To close the show, Trivia Tuesdays on Thursdays returned and Matt went a perfect 5/5 and even got a bonus point. Then they talked about Gary Sanchez and the Yankees.
