The Orioles are likely to trade Manny Machado in the next day or two, and depending on who you believe, the Dodgers might be the frontrunners to get him. Jeff and Vince talk about that and a bunch of other things in this episode.

We also did a Sporcle quiz: Can you name the Dodger hitters with at least 20 home runs in a season?

Near the end of this episode, word broke that Chase Utley will be holding a press conference this afternoon. Jeff and Vince, assuming that the press conference will be to announce his retirement, spent the last few minutes talking about Utley and his impact on the Dodgers.

Before that, we had a ton of really good mailbag questions, and we addressed issues about second base, the bullpen, potential trade partners, Manny Machado, and other stuff.

Let's face it, recording (and listening to) a Dodgers podcast is more fun with the Dodgers are playing well. After a week off, Jeff and Vince are back to talk about the resurgent Dodgers, and it's a fun one. Great mailbag questions, a fun Sporcle quiz, and good times for all.

Jeff and Vince talk about all the goings on in the Dodgers universe, including the upcoming return of Clayton Kershaw, the emergence of Ross Stripling, the continued excellent play of Matt Kemp, the promotion of Dennis Santana, and about a hundred other topics. We also did an "On This Date" that was pretty uneventful, except that it introduced us to a guy named Blas Minor, who apparently spent six years in the big leagues and is now a firefighter in an Arizona town neighboring the town where Cody Bellinger's dad is a firefighter. And his name is Blas.

Jeff and Vince recorded this podcast while watching the Dodgers play the Marlins on Thursday morning. During the Sporcle quiz, they watched the Dodgers offense break out with the help of two doubles from Justin Turned to drive in a total of five runs. The game is still going right now, but things are looking good. We briefly discussed recording an episode EVERY game, but Jeff decided that wasn't the best thing for his marriage.

Take the Sporcle quiz with us: Can you name the active MLB home run leader for each season?

Also, be sure to answer the question contained in this episode using the hashtag #devilwentdowntododgers. You'll have to listen to know what the question is.

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?

Apr 19, 2018

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.
