Baseball’s current greats are all in New York for the MLB All-Star Game, but it’s Los Angeles that has the been the city playing possibly the best ball in the league in the past month. With the help of a Cuban immigrant named Puig, the Dodgers have climbed to within just 2.5 games of the top spot in the National League West, and if the team stays healthy, they’re a good bet to go long into the post season.

If anyone knows the potential of the Dodgers’ second half of the season, Dan Evans does. He’s a former Dodgers General Manager (2001-04) and currently the top scout for the Toronto Blue Jays, and he’s in studio with us today to talk about rebuilding a club, scouting for its future, and dealing with the daily challenges of trying to win a World Series.
