Fernando Valenzuela's number 34 will be the 12th number retired by the Dodgers, but he'll be only the fifth "bandit-less" retired number. A "Retired Number Bandit" is a term Jeff came up with to describe someone who wore a retired number before it was retired but after the person for whom it was retired wore it. The most famous example is Ray Lamb,…

(NOTE: This is the episode we missed on Friday. Our software ate it and we thought it was gone for good, but it was restored on Sunday so we're sending it out to you now.) The Dodgers have signed a handful of players to minor league contracts but do any of them really have a chance to impact the team in 2023? Then the guys finish the episode by pla…

The Dodgers added former MLB Network host and play-by-play man Stephen Nelson to the broadcast booth. And no, he won't be replacing Joe Davis. James Outman was looking jacked in an Instagram video.

Today's episode is all about Shohei Ohtani after a report/thought that he could command $500M as a free agent next winter. Is that a conceivable number for Ohtani? Should the Dodgers be in on him at that price, or will they continue to look for shorter deals with higher AAV? And lastly, will the Dodgers try and trade for Ohtani at the deadline in o…
 
Former Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig agreed to plead guilty to lying to federal investigators, only to later back out. Why did he agree to plead guilty in the first place?

No real news came out of Thursday for the Dodgers so Vince does a mailbag episode with questions from listeners.

Locked…

The Dodgers are expected to give significant playing time to a handful of rookies and young players in 2023 and it is reminiscent of the 2006 Dodgers. However, unlike that team, the rookies aren't expected to carry the Dodgers but rather supplement the rest of the stars. Jeff and Vince discuss that dynamic. Lastly, the latest on Carlos Correa, and …
 
We don't have all the facts — or even hardly any of the facts — about what actually happened in the Trevor Bauer situation.
