On this episode, Vince and Jeff talk about the Giants/Nationals brawl that was started by crybaby Hunter Strickland being a big crying crybaby. We analyzed it from every angle, really. Crack analysis, guaranteed. We also did some live research into whether there is a Dairy Queen for Strickland to work at in his hometown of Thomaston, Georgia.

Later, we talked about the Dodgers' use of the 10-day disabled list and how awesome it is that our favorite team has a front office that is smart.

This week's Sporcle quiz was:

Can you name the hitters with the most PA playing their whole career for just one Major League Baseball franchise?

It was harder than we thought it was going to be.

Vince and Jeff talk about a lot of different Dodgers topics in this episode, thanks to some great questions from Listeners Like You! There's also one really stupid question from a guy who represents all that is bad about Angry Dodgers Twitter, and Jeff takes the opportunity to scold him and encourage the rest of you to not be like him.

Today's Sporcle quiz, which you can take along with us at the prescribed moment during the podcast:

Can you name the players in the National Baseball Hall of Fame?

Let us know how you did on the quiz. You can tweet at us @ScullyAve @VinceSamperio and @snidog. Follow us, and thanks for listening!

Vince and Jeff forgot to do a Sporcle quiz last week, but we're back with a good one this week. You should take it too! It is:

Can you name the 1980's Los Angeles Dodgers?

Considering that Jeff was actually alive in the 1980s, it's not surprising that he beat Vince on this one.

We had a few mailbag questions we answered, and then we discussed our topics. Vince wanted to talk about whether the Rockies are going to stay good all year, and Jeff wanted to talk about Clayton Kershaw's "struggles" so far.

Today's game starts in three hours, and Kershaw will hopefully break this little losing streak the team is on. Go Dodgers!

Episode 50 got interrupted a few minutes in when Jeff's wife called and asked him to go pick up his sick son at school. We thought about editing it out, but we decided it was important for the listeners to hear Jeff's ringtone. We answered a few mailbag questions, and then a few questions tied into the topics we wanted to discuss.

Jeff's topic was whether the Dodgers should stick with a six-man rotation, but with Clayton Kershaw still starting every fifth game. We discussed the merits and drawbacks of that plan.

Vince's topic was about the injury to Andrew Toles in last night's game and what the Dodgers should do if he's out for a while. We discussed the possibility of prospect Alex Verdugo filling that spot.

We started Episode 49 with the weekly Sporcle Challenge, in which Jeff and Vince both took this Sporcle quiz and you should too:

Can you name the Dodgers players who have received Cy Young votes?

Then we did the Dodgers mailbag, although most of the questions were about Cody Bellinger, so we skipped them until we got to the point of the show where we spent 20 minutes talking about Cody Bellinger. In between, we talked about the back-to-back-to-back homers in the ninth inning of Saturday's game, including Joe Davis's masterful call(s).
