We had so many mailbag questions today that we just focused on them. But first, we did our Sporcle challenge, wherein Jeff and Vince both take the same Sporcle quiz and then compare results. You should take the quiz now (or when Jeff gives the cue during the episode) and compare your results. Today's quiz:
In our discussion of the quiz, we also talked about Joe Ferguson's catch and throw in the 1974 World Series, which you can watch here. And you really should watch it if you've never seen it.
After the Sporcle challenge, we answered your Twitter questions, and we covered pretty much everything of interest to Dodgers fans.

We have a new feature: Jeff and Vince go head-to-head to see who is better at Dodgers-related Sporcle quizzes. This week's quiz: Dodgers Nicknames. Take the quiz, then listen and see if if you did better or worse than Vince and Jeff. Let us know on Twitter if you beat us!
We answered a few mailbag questions, one of which led into Vince's topic: What would it take to get Ryan Braun? We also talked about whether we want the Dodgers to get Braun at all. Then we discussed Jeff's topic: What's up with Adrian Gonzalez? The answer will shock you.
We started and ended with some "Clayton Kershaw is awesome" stuff, cuz that's how we roll. Thanks for listening! Follow us on Twitter: @ScullyAve @snidog @VinceSamperio
Vince put out a call for questions right as the Dodgers were failing to score with bases loaded and no outs, so the questions were a little bit more negative than usual. But it was a good crop of questions, and Jeff even did some research to answer one of them! We did a long mailbag segment (including some discussion of ESPN's broadcast of the Dodgers/Cubs game -- oh, who are we kidding? The Cubs game), then talked a bit about Rich Hill's blisters and Adrian Gonzalez's desire to bunt against the shift.
