You'd be hard pressed to find a better combo in baseball's Golden Age than Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale, the twin aces of the LA Dodgers. But the pair also were also shrewd negotiations who realized their power together when they announced 54 years ago this week that they'd be holding out. Mike and Bill look back at their holdout, how they exerted pressure on the Dodgers before free agency, and how they set the stage for other battles decades later. Plus happy birthday to Pepper Martin and Dickey Pearce.
