On this, the final 2012 episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (L.A. Dugout) and I talk about the "big" trade that sent John Ely to Houston for Rob Rasmussen. We both like the deal.
We also answer some reader questions, which were excellent this week. Will Brian Wilson (yes, that Brian Wilson) end up with the Dodgers? What's up with Alex Castellanos? Will we see Yasiel Puig in September? And this one is the most compelling: Is this a make-or-break season for Don Mattingly? I'm going to go more into depth on that in a post.
