Vince and Jeff talked about so many Dodgers topics today that it would be impossible* to list them all. Jeff told a story about a dream he had where asked a warlord why Dodgers fans get so upset about one loss in a long season, so that was fun. We talked about AJ Ellis getting traded, Clayton Kershaw's impending return, and the successful week against the Giants and Cubs.

Last week's Question of the Week (favorite Dodgers/Giants memory) had a lot of the same answer (Steve Finley's grand slam in 2004), but there were several other good answers, too.

This week's QotW is: Not counting Kirk Gibson's World Series homer and Steve Finley's grand slam, what is your favorite home run ever hit by a Dodger?

Vince and Jeff talk about the past week for the Dodgers, which saw them go 4-3 and gain ground on the Giants. The pitching struggled except for Julio Urias, but the offense was very good, especially Adrian Gonzalez. We also discussed Chase Utley's grand homecoming.

Last week's question of the week (What deal with the devil would you make to guarantee a Dodgers World Series victory?) got a lot of good answers. This week's QotW is: What is your favorite Dodgers/Giants memory?

Vince and Jeff are back with more Dodgers talk. We discussed last week's Question  of the Week, about which minor leaguers our listeners are excited to see in the big leagues.

This week's QotW is: What deal with the devil would you make for the Dodgers to win the World Series this year?

In the mailbag, we spun off into a discussion of Clayton Kershaw's Cy Young chances this year.

Vince and Jeff talked with Dodgers prospect Cody Bellinger. We talked about life as a prospect at the trade deadline, his experience in the Little League World Series, growing up with a Major League father, and the ultimate goal of playing in Clayton Kershaw's ping pong tournament at Dodger Stadium, among other things.

We also discussed last week's Question of the Week, with the consensus that the Manny Ramirez trade is everyone's favorite. This week's QotW is: Which Dodgers minor leaguer are you most excited to see in the big leagues?

The trade deadline happened, and Vince and Jeff talked about the three trades the Dodgers made. We also talked about Yasiel Puig being sent to the minors and not acting childish about it no matter what some anonymous sources say.

Finally, we discussed last week's Question of the Week: Who would you put on the Dodgers' Mount Rushmore?

We got a lot of great responses, and after tallying up the votes, the four faces being engraved into the face of the hills just below the Hollywood sign are Sandy Koufax, Jackie Robinson, Vin Scully, and Clayton Kershaw. Congratulations to those four!
