Spring training is underway and the Dodgers are already the best team in baseball! Embellishment aside, over the first pair of Cactus League games, the boys in blue have looked locked in on all sides of the ball. Moreover, Monday marked the highly anticipated Dodger debut for Trevor Bauer. The guys break down what they saw out of the right-hander in game one and some of the things fans should be excited for team-wise with the 2020 ...

The last episode without real-life baseball until November! The guys dig into a couple of the big questions for the Dodgers -- which are admittedly hard to find -- heading into Cactus League play this weekend. The first big point of topic: what is the plan for the catching position? Will Smith is among the best catchers in the game, at least offensively. On the other hand, Austin Barnes is a top-tier defender. We throw to Dave Robe...

The Dodgers officially signed Trevor Bauer, brought back Justin Turner, and swindled two teams in trades. Plus pitchers and catchers report this week, so the guys are excited! First we recap a busy week for Andrew "Fleeceman" Friedman who waited until the end to pull off perhaps his best offseason yet. Next, we welcome internet friend and now friend of the show Jeff Snider -- host of the Locked of Dodgers podcast -- to prev...

The Dodgers added the top free agent starter on the market to the team last week, building on the excess of excess starting pitching at their disposal. With Trevor Bauer in tow, Dave Roberts has a lot of "good to have" problems to sort through before opening day. Including in the bullpen. So if the pitching staff is overloaded, should the club look to trade from an area of depth to a) trim payroll and b) potentially fill th...

WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THE AUDIO ISSUES! The settings had a mind of their own today... the second half of the stream gets much better! Major League Baseball is still struggling to get along. Mere weeks before teams are supposed to report to spring training, the league once again has tried to pull a fast one on the players, offering a proposal to the union that could push the season start back. However, the union isn't biting on ...

Today we're quickly paying our respects to Enrique Hernandez who has left the Dodgers after 7 seasons and a championship. And, of course, we're digging into the offseason hot stove. Justin Turner still hasn't re-signed with LA. Trevor Bauer has been linked in free agency. And a bullpen candidate signed with another team. So what comes next this winter? Well, looking at the calendar, there is still a lot of time for Andr...

We also dig into the modern game and how even with the buzz words "analytics" and "spin rate", not much has really changed. Plus, discuss a sticky situation going on around the game. Finally, we wrap up with some classic stories from his Dod...

Another week in and another week without the return of Justin Turner to the Dodgers. The guys dig into the latest hot stove chatter and wonder aloud if the sudden resurgence of Marcus Semien to LA rumors is a way to lit a fire under the JT negotiations. Next, we look at what the DH could mean for the Dodgers in 2021 and still this offseason after reports of Marcell Ozuna talks in free agency. Plus a HUGE giveaway with our friends a...

We're back and boy did we miss you! Thankfully, there's a whole bunch of Dodgers news for us all to catch up on! Unfortunately, not too much of it involves actually personnel moves. First up, Justin Turner has newly reported contract demands and these undoubtedly are too high for the Dodgers. With JT asking for a 4-year deal -- at the age of 36 -- Clint and Brook break down what could come next for the long-time LA third ba...

We're halfway through December and things still are whisper quiet around the Dodgers and the hot stove. At least until Ken Rosenthal got bored. The baseball insider made not one but two big waves last week when he predicted Trevor Bauer to LA and went off the deep end with hypothetical transactions. Back in the real world, the Dodgers made actual moves when they used flashback Friday to bring back some familiar names including ...

Another week with some live stream issues, but the guys persevered and put together another quality offseason show, if we do say so! First, we welcome the newest Dodgers reliever Corey Knebel to the bullpen as we wonder what comes next for a 2021 reliever core that still needs more help. With that, we look at the sloooooow offseason hot stove as the MLB winter meetings kick off online. Properly, we debunk some of the latest rumors ...

Socially distanced, the guys battle through some technical difficulties (for the second night in a row) to talk about your Los Angeles Dodgers. The latest includes an update on those Nolan Arenado trade rumors. Surprise, they may have been premature. Plus, the guys make their hot stove predictions for the top-5 free agents for the month of December and Twitter votes on whether they prefer Justin Turner or Arenado as the 3B for 2021...

Now the hot stove is finally trying to heat up! Former MLB GM Jim Bowden broke the internet when he predicted Rockies' superstar third baseman Nolan Arenado would be a Dodger by Christmas. We break down the rumors and wonder aloud how real they are in a supersized Arenado special. There are a lot of moving parts to the trade rumor for both sides. The guys take everything from Nolan's contract to the futures of homegrown sta...

Right off the bat, we send our love and prayers to Tommy Lasorda and the entire family of the Dodgers legend. In other news, the guys praise the Marlins for their hiring of long time Dodger executive Kim Ng. Moreover, Kim made history as she shattered the glass ceiling while making Clint feel old at the same time. Next, the Padres lost ace Mike Clevinger to Tommy John surgery, setting up a conversation we had last week with former ...

In a headcase of an episode, the guys wrap up the Justin Turner 'rona saga and once again point to the failure known as Rob Manfred. The MLB commish keeps proving he's over his head as he jumps from one scandal back to an old one with the Astros. Plus, baseball's "warm stove" is underway as some media types are trying to link the Dodgers to some big time names. Including Frankie Lindor for another offseason. Bro...

The season is officially over -- oh, and the Dodgers are still World Series champions -- but there are a few things to tend to in 2020.

We dig into some of the things that were handled very poorly and hear from Joe Kelly about the conditions that may have lead to the positive test. The guys also introduce a new s...
