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!

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.

Sep 6, 2016

Vince and Jeff talked Dodgers. First place. Jose De Leon's debut. Clayton Kershaw's return. So much good stuff.

We also talked about all your favorite Dodgers homers in history -- a ton of good answers, so thank you for that!

This week's Question of the Week, spurred by a discussion of sports fandom: Which team outside the NL West is your least favorite and why? You might need to email your answers this week, because the WHY could be long.

And of course, we're always on Twitter @ScullyAve, @VinceSamperio, and @snidog.

Vince and Jeff talked about so many Dodgers topics today that it would be impossible* to list them all. Jeff told a story about a dream he had where asked a warlord why Dodgers fans get so upset about one loss in a long season, so that was fun. We talked about AJ Ellis getting traded, Clayton Kershaw's impending return, and the successful week against the Giants and Cubs.

Last week's Question of the Week (favorite Dodgers/Giants memory) had a lot of the same answer (Steve Finley's grand slam in 2004), but there were several other good answers, too.

This week's QotW is: Not counting Kirk Gibson's World Series homer and Steve Finley's grand slam, what is your favorite home run ever hit by a Dodger?

Aug 23, 2016

Vince and Jeff talk about the past week for the Dodgers, which saw them go 4-3 and gain ground on the Giants. The pitching struggled except for Julio Urias, but the offense was very good, especially Adrian Gonzalez. We also discussed Chase Utley's grand homecoming.

Last week's question of the week (What deal with the devil would you make to guarantee a Dodgers World Series victory?) got a lot of good answers. This week's QotW is: What is your favorite Dodgers/Giants memory?
