In this episode, Jeff and Vince talk to Dodgers minor leaguer Matt Beaty, who was recently added to the 40-man roster. We talk about that experience, battling through injuries in 2018, his hopes and plans for the future, and a ton of other things. Very enjoyable conversation.

We also answered your mailbag questions and talked about the Joe Kelly signing, rumored trades with the Indians, Reds, and Pirates, and other topics.

We were originally supposed to have Dodgers farmhand and 40-man-roster-person Matt Beaty as our guest on today's show, but technology and Dominican internet prevented that from happening. Matt will be our guest next week instead. For today, we talked about Bryce Harper, Corey Kluber, clutch hitting, Dave Roberts, and a bunch of other things.

Oh, and we did a Sporcle quiz, too! Can you name the top 50 home run hitters in Dodgers history? Let us know how you did on it.

In an attempt to see how many episodes in a row can be named after Corey Kluber, the Dodgers are discussing a trade that would involve Kluber and Yasiel Puig. Jeff and Vince are here to discuss that rumor, the new Dodgers coaches, and various other topics, including questions from you (yes, YOU) about Caleb Ferguson and Alex Wood.

We also did a Sporcle quiz: Can you name all 52 2018 Los Angeles Dodgers? Take the quiz and let us know how you did!

Not much has happened yet this offseason, but there are rumors that the Dodgers are in talks with the Indians about (possibly) Corey Kluber. Jeff and Vince talk about that and bunch of other things in this episode.

The World Series is over, and it didn't end well for the Dodgers. Jeff and Vince talk a bit about that, and then we move on to the upcoming offseason. The Dodgers got under the luxury tax threshold with the goal of spending a lot this offseason, so it should be interesting. We talk about possible acquisitions -- via free agency and trade -- that the Dodgers might make in the next few months.

Thanks for listening! We'll be here all offseason. Be sure to follow us on Twitter! @ScullyAve @snidog @VinceSamperio

The odds were long, especially when the Dodgers were 10 games under .500 early in the season, and especially when they were 4.5 games out of first place on August 22. But despite those odds, the Dodgers won the NL West and the NLDS and the NLCS and will be facing the Red Sox in the World Series beginning tonight! Jeff and Vince are here to talk a bit about the NLCS win over the Brewers and preview what is sure to be an outstanding World Series.

The Dodgers took care of business in the NLDS, beating the Braves in four games. Tonight, they're in Milwaukee for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Brewers. Jeff and Vince talk about the rosters and preview what seems likely to be a close, exciting series.

Oct 5, 2018

Since we last talked, the Dodgers swept the Giants, pounded the Rockies in Game 163, and pounded the Braves in Game 1 of the NLDS. Not a bad week's work. Jeff and Vince are here to talk about the past, present, and glorious future of Dodger baseball. Thanks for all your mailbag questions, and thanks for listening!

This week hasn't gone as well for the Dodgers as we had hoped, mostly due to the fact that the Rockies refuse to lose. But as we head into the final weekend of the regular season, the Dodgers have a chance to win the division, win the second Wild Card spot, or miss the postseason. Jeff and Vince are here to talk about what should be an exciting (and hopefully not heartbreaking) weekend.

Sep 20, 2018

In the past few weeks, the Dodgers have struggled against the Mets and the Reds, two bad teams. But four times they've faced a team they were battling in the division or the Wild Card, and all four times they've come through. The latest example is a three-game sweep of the Rockies to turn a 0.5-game deficit into a 2.5-game lead in the NL West.

Jeff and Vince spent most of this episode answering your questions. A lot of great questions led to a lot of great discussion. We also looked at this date in 1959, a game in which Sandy Koufax was pulled because he couldn't throw a strike.

Sep 14, 2018

The Dodgers haven't been in a pennant race this late in the season in a long time. Vince Samperio and Jeff Snider are here to talk about what's going on. We talked about the crowded outfield, shuffling in the starting rotation, the team's offseason plans, and a ton of other things. We also went back in time to this date in 1963, when Phillies catcher Bob Oldis had two of his five career passed balls and the Dodgers beat the Phillies, 5-1.

Oh yeah, and we also discussed Jeff's amazing feat from slow-pitch softball that he had never seen anyone do before.

Sep 7, 2018

Since we last talked, the Dodgers took care of business against the Diamondbacks to jump into first place, then failed to take care of business agains the Mets and dropped down to second place. Jeff and Vince look at the upcoming weekend series against the first-place Rockies, along with several other topics.

We also did a Sporcle quiz: Can you name the Dodgers players with the most games started at each position from 1980 to 2012?

Aug 31, 2018

The Dodgers won five straight to pull within a game of the Diamondbacks, but they lost to the DBacks last night. Chris Taylor struck out four times and has looked terrible lately. Jeff and Vince discuss the future of Taylor, as well as several other topics. Be sure to send your questions and comments to us on Twitter at @ScullyAve (or @snidog or @VinceSamperio, if you like us as individuals too). We also looked back at a game on this date in 1999, with a starting pitcher who spent parts of four seasons with the Dodgers but neither of us remember.

Thanks for listening!
