After winning 7 out of 8 to climb above .500, the Dodgers lost two in a row to the Marlins and their minor-league pitchers. Jeff and Vince talk about that a bit, but we try not to dwell too much on the negative. We also discussed timelines for Justin Turner and Logan Forsythe, concerns about Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler's first career start, and a lot of other topics. And we did a Sporcle quiz:

Can you name a player that made their major league debut with the Dodgers for each season since 1980?

In this episode, Vince and Jeff talk about the latest in Dodgers news, including talk of Kenley Jansen, Rich Hill, Max Muncy, Corey Seager, and most of the rest of the team. We also picked our all-time favorite players who weren't Dodgers, with only two-and-a-half repeat answers. No Sporcle quiz this week, but we have a cool idea for a new game next week.

Between off days, a rainout, and some lackluster play, it almost feels like the Dodgers season hasn't started yet. But it has, and Jeff and Vince are here to talk about it.

Tomorrow is Opening Day, and after what Vince has described as the longest spring training ever, the Dodgers will play the Bumgarner-less Giants tomorrow afternoon. Jeff and Vince talk about the Opening Day roster, the amazing fact that Matt Kemp is the team's starting left fielder, and their excitement for the upcoming season, among a lot of other things.

We also did a Sporcle quiz: Can you name the Dodgers Opening Day Starting Pitchers and Catchers since 1960?

Justin Turner has a fractured wrist, but luckily, the Dodgers have a ton of depth. Jeff and Vince discuss that, along with a variety of other Dodgers-related topics.

Jeff and Vince answered your Dodgers questions today, specifically about the starting outfield, Logan Forsythe, Julio Urias, Pat Venditte, and a few other things. We also did a Sporcle quiz and discussed a few "baseball debate" topics.

Vince was born in 1991, so we dedicate Episode 91 to him. By which we mean we mention it once at the beginning and then never again. But other things we talked about include our predictions of the Opening Day roster, Matt Kemp's future, Joc Pederson, Chase Utley, Yasmani Grandal, and a bunch of other things. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!

Half the Dodgers team is battling illness. So is Jeff, which is why we recorded on Friday instead of Wednesday. We answered some mailbag questions and we did a fun Sporcle quiz. It was a good episode. Go ahead and listen to it. Love ya, bye.

Jeff and Vince talk about the start of Dodgers spring training, including the fact that Matt Kemp is still here and Chris Archer still isn't. We also discuss the starting catcher role, the outfield, the possibility of getting other Rays besides Archer, and more.

And we did a Sporcle quiz: Can you name the Dodgers pitcher with the most saves each season?

Feb 14, 2018

Jeff and Vince answered our listeners' Dodgers questions about Chase Utley, the starting rotation, the left-field rotation, Dodgers Twitter, and fitted caps. We also talked about Yu Darvish signing with the Cubs and Matt Kemp reporting to spring training, with a segue into a discussion of Kemp's "baseball town" comments from a couple years ago, which then segued into a discussion of Jeff not caring about that non-issue and other things that we don't care about but other people do.

Feb 7, 2018

The players and the owners are at each other's throats, but Jeff and Vince are as civil as ever with each other. We answered some Dodgers questions, then spent some time talking about the current labor strife in MLB.

Oh, and we did a Sporcle quiz, too! Can you beat us? Can you name the recipients who have had their 'number' retired (MLB)?

Jan 24, 2018

Very little is happening in the Dodgers world right now, so Jeff and Vince branched out a little bit. After answering some Dodgers-specific mailbag questions, we did a general baseball Sporcle quiz and then ranted for a while about pace-of-play stuff. The end result is a bit shorter than usual, but we like the way it turned out.

Today's Sporcle quiz: Can you name the top 5 MLB home run hitters from 1970-2009?

Jan 17, 2018

Lots of mailbag questions today, so Vince and Jeff just answered them all. We discussed Yu Darvish, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, the luxury tax, Dodger Stadium, and much more. Thanks for listening!

Jan 10, 2018

Dodgers catching prospect Will Smith (@will_smith30 on Twitter) joined Jeff and Vince to talk about his life as a minor leaguer. It's good that he was available, because there's not much going on in baseball right now. Enjoy the interview!

Jan 4, 2018

We didn't know how we'd fill time on this episode. It ended up being 50 minutes long. We talked about Tacos El Gordo (the reason for last week's canceled episode), Matt Kemp, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, and the Angels. It was still technically a Dodgers podcast, but we branched out a little bit this week.

This week's Sporcle quiz: Can you name the All Time Dodgers Quiz?

Two things we asked you, the listener, to do: 1) Tell us where and how you listen to our show, and 2) Review our show on iTunes and we'll read your review on the show.
