Lots of questions today regarding the stalled Brian Dozier trade talks. The Dodgers will have a second baseman, but no one knows who it will be, including Vince and Jeff. We also talked about why it's not a big deal that the Dodgers haven't signed any non-returning free agents, partly because the three returning free agents were three of the top four free agents on the market, and partly because they were already a really good team with plenty of built-in room for improvement.

Vince's topic was who your favorite team would be if the Dodgers ceased to exist. A pretty lengthy discussion about that led to this week's Question of the Week, which is actually three questions:

If the Dodgers moved to Montreal and became the Montreal Dodgers, would your fandom follow them or would you find a new favorite team? What if they became the Montreal Mounties? And finally, what if they were the Montreal Dodgers but they changed their color scheme to orange and black?

In this episode, Vince and Jeff had their first draft, choosing a team of players who played well for the Dodgers but played more in their careers with another team. The first two picks in the draft with Mike Piazza and Manny Ramirez; you'll have to listen to find out the rest.

Also, during our mailbag segment, we accidentally gained a sponsor: @DipdTruck, which appears to be a food truck that does French dip sandwiches. Jeff and Vince are both firm supporters of food trucks and French dip sandwiches, so whether they like it or not, they are now our sponsor.

A lot of mailbag questions about Brian Dozier today, so Vince and Jeff spent quite a while talking about him. Several other good questions too, and we spent some time talking about the Dodgers re-signing Kenley Jansen and Justin Turner. We talked about Bryce Harper's $400 million hopes and Andrew Friedman's thoughts on rational front offices, too.

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.

Nov 15, 2016

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.

Nov 2, 2016

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?

Thanks for listening!

Sep 20, 2016

Vince (@VinceSamperio) and Jeff (@snidog) talk about last night's Dodgers/Giants game, which saw the Dodgers win on a walkoff two innings after Madison Bumgarner went ballistic over the placement of Yasiel Puig's eyeballs. We talk a lot about Bumgarner and what's wrong with his brain, as we are fully qualified to do.

This week's Question of the Week: How should Puig and Bumgarner settle things? Be creative, and tweet your answers @ScullyAve.
