Happy birthday to Vin Scully!
Today, Vince and Jeff talked Dodgers on a slow news week. Vince's topic was Julio Urias and the Dodgers' approach and handling of him next season. Jeff's topic was a rambling mishmash of thoughts about what their offseason direction should be. Conclusion: Improve everywhere.

Vince and Jeff each brought their own Dodgers-related topic to today's episode. It just so happens that it was basically the same topic: retired numbers. Should Fernando Valenzuela's number be retired? What other numbers should the Dodgers retire? Listen up to learn what we think.
We also had a lot of good listener questions today, so thanks for that. And this is guaranteed to be the only podcast today that will mention Brent Cookson or Jeff Kubenka, let alone BOTH of them.

In this episode, Vince Samperio and Jeff Snider take questions from our listeners about possible trades, re-signing Kenley Jansen and Justin Turner, and a few other things. Vince's topic was the minor league system and which, if any, prospects should be considered "untouchable." Jeff's topic was Yasiel Puig's development and whether there have been flaws exposed in his game that would have been identified in the minor leagues for less naturally gifted players.

Vince Samperio and Jeff Snider each brought one Dodgers-related topic to the table today. Vince chose to discuss Adrian Gonzalez's future with the team, and Jeff choose Clayton Kershaw's chances at a sixth consecutive top-5 Cy Young finish.
We also answered a few questions from listeners like you about the Dodgers offseason plans, which can be summed up as: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Come for the Dodgers banter, stay for the two Cy Young trivia questions:
-- Who are the only two pitchers besides Kershaw with at least five straight top-5 Cy Young finishes?
-- Who are the 20 pitchers who won at least one Cy Young Award but never got ANY CY votes in a season in which they did NOT win?
