Joc's Birthday, Cody's Heroics, and Bullpen Struggles

4/22/2019
More
The Dodgers won the series in Milwaukee and the season series against the Brewers. The games were not without drama, as two of the three wins came on late home runs against Josh Hader. Jeff is flying solo again today because Vince was actually in Milwaukee for the series finale. Vince checks in remotely, and Jeff discusses Joc Pederson's big birthday game, Cody Bellinger's heroics on both offense and defense, and the struggles of Pedro Baez and Kenley Jansen and what we might expect going...

Julio's Great Farewell Start, Verdugo's Great Throw

4/19/2019
More
Julio Urias pitched six one-hit innings in his final start before heading to the bullpen, Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy homered, and Alex Verdugo threw a laser strike to nail Hernan Perez at the plate. Jeff is alone today to talk about all of that and more.

How Sweep It Is, and Pollock's Ups and Downs

4/18/2019
More
The Dodgers completed their sweep of the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon, with Walker Buehler dominating on the mound, Cody Bellinger looking good in his return, and AJ Pollock providing the big blow with a three-run homer. Jeff and Vince discuss all those aspects of the game, plus talk of Pollock's overall struggles this season and a couple minutes on Rich Hill's successful rehab start for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes against Jeff's hometown Lake Elsinore Storm. Locked On Dodgers,...

Good Starters Lead to Rested Relievers, and the Verdugo Rookie of the Year Train

4/17/2019
More
In the past three games, Dodgers starting pitchers have gone deep into games, leading to team success and rest for the bullpen. Jeff and Vince talk about the impact starting pitching has on the bullpen and what we expect and hope for from Walker Buehler in today's series finale. Then we climb about the Alex Verdugo Rookie of the Year train and talk about some of the things that have impressed us the most about him so far this season. Locked On Dodgers, the daily podcast about the Los...

Jackie, Puig, Kershaw, Joc, and Belli: So Much to Talk About

4/16/2019
More
The Dodgers rolled out a great pre-game program for Jackie Robinson Day, and then Clayton Kershaw, Yasiel Puig, and Joc Pederson treated the fans to an outstanding game that ended in a walkoff Dodgers victory. Jeff is flying solo today, and he's here to talk about all of that, plus Cody Bellinger's hit-by-pitch that drove him from the game but hopefully not much more than that. Locked On Dodgers, the daily podcast about the Los Angeles Dodgers with hosts Jeff Snider and Vince Samperio, is...

Return of the Puig

4/15/2019
More
The Dodgers finally broke their six-game losing streak on Sunday. Jeff and Vince talk about the victory over the Brewers that really was a complete team effort, and then what we expect and hope for from Clayton Kershaw as he makes his first start of the season on Monday. But most of the time was devoted to Yasiel Puig, who makes his return to Dodger Stadium for the first time as a visiting player. We talk about the ups and downs of his time in L.A., as well as Andy McCullogh's recent article...

Pitcher Homers, Destroying Stadiums, and Calling the Team "We"

4/12/2019
More
The Dodgers finished getting swept by the Cardinals, and let's face it, we've spent enough time this week polishing turds. So today, we took the only bright spot from yesterday's game -- Walker Buehler's first career homer -- and turned it into a segment on pitcher homers that stick out in our minds. Later, we answered a couple user tweets about destroying opposing teams' stadiums (don't) and referring to our favorite team as "we" (we don't, but you can as long as you're not a jerk). Thanks...

Another Loss, But It's Throwback Thursday!

4/11/2019
More
I mean, sure, the Dodgers lost their third straight game, and there's were hardly even any bright spots to speak of. BUT ... baseball is still great, and today for Throwback Thursday, Vince and Jeff share their earliest Dodger memories.

Sure, the Offense Was Lousy, But Did You See Marcell Ozuna?

4/10/2019
More
Normally on Locked On Dodgers, we focus exclusively on the Los Angeles Dodgers. But last night, it was the man playing left field against the Dodgers who stole the show. In a 4-0 Cardinals victory, left-fielder Marcell Ozuna made a valiant effort to rob Kiké Hernandez of a home run. The only problem was, the ball landed on the warning track a few feet shy of the fence -- and so did Ozuna. If you want to watch the play, click here. (Please don't watch it while driving.) So in this episode,...

Kiké's Brain, Kelly's Arm, and Ryu's Groin -- A Losing Combination

4/9/2019
More
The Dodgers opened a 4-game set with the Cardinals in St. Louis, and things did not go according to plan. Hyun-Jin Ryu left the game with two outs in the second inning with what we later found out was a left groin strain, leaving the beleaguered and overworked bullpen to cover the last 7.1 innings. Joe Kelly thought he'd do his part by making it so the Cards didn't have to bat in the ninth inning, allowing one run of Scott Alexander's and one of his own to turn a 3-2 lead into a 4-3 deficit...

The Cody Bellinger MVP Train is Rolling!

4/8/2019
More
Heading into the weekend series with the Rockies, Cody Bellinger was the hottest player in baseball. In the Dodgers' three-game sweep of Colorado, all Cody did was go 6-for-12 with two doubles, a triple, and two home runs and play Gold Glove defense at two different positions. In today's episode, Jeff and Vince talk about Cody's season, along with the hot start from fellow lefty outfielder Alex Verdugo, who needs more playing time. We wrapped up with a discussion of the offense as a whole,...

Off-Day Mailbag: Talking Kluber & Bauer, Bellinger's MVP Case, and Bumgarner the Dodger

4/5/2019
More
For the first time since the season began, we don't have an actual game to discuss, so we opened up the mailbag to take your Twitter questions. We talked about Clayton Kershaw's first rehab start and what it might mean for the Dodgers in acquiring another starting pitcher, either Corey Kluber or Trevor Bauer from the Indians or maybe even Madison Bumgarner from the Giants. We also discussed what Cody Bellinger need to do in games 8 through 162 to lock down his MVP case. Oh yeah, and we...

Caleb Ferguson is Holding It Down and So Is the Offense

4/4/2019
More
Another series win aided by elite reliever Caleb Ferguson and a bold (?) Dave Roberts decision regarding David Freese, plus a look back at the offense through the first week of the season. Hint: It's really, really good. Locked On Dodgers, the daily podcast about the Los Angeles Dodgers with hosts Jeff Snider and Vince Samperio, is part of the Locked On Podcast Network.

Bellinger & Ryu Look Great, Bullpen & Muncy Look ... Less Great

4/3/2019
More
It should have been an easy win for the Dodgers after Cody Bellinger's grand slam put them up 5-0, especially with Hyun-Jin Ryu cruising. But a bad pitch to Madison Bumgarner cost Ryu two runs, and another bad night for the bullpen and some shaky defense from Max Muncy cost the team three more and left them hanging on by their fingernails for a 6-5 victory. Jeff and Vince are here to talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly. Locked On Dodgers, the daily podcast about the Los Angeles...

Joe Kelly, You Broke My Heart

4/2/2019
More
The Dodgers started their first series with the hated Giants last night, and while Julio Urias looked great and Chris Taylor showed some signs of breaking out, the offense struggled overall and Joe Kelly continued his lackluster start to the season with another blown lead leading to a loss. Jeff is flying solo today (Vince had to drive home to San Diego from Dodger Stadium after the game, and we decided not to subject you to a cell phone episode), and he talks about the tale of two pitchers...

Not Quite Perfect, but Great First Weekend

4/1/2019
More
The Los Angeles Dodgers showcased a few areas of potential growth in their Opening Weekend series win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, but they also showcased an explosive offense that can win in pretty much any way imaginable. The strung hits together. They played small ball. Oh yeah, and they also hit 16 homers in four games. Jeff and Vince are here to break down some key elements of that series, as well as preview the upcoming three-game series with the San Francisco Giants. We also have,...

Opening Day Went Very Well!

3/29/2019
More
The Dodgers opened their 2019 season on Thursday, and it went about as well as we could have hoped. Hyun-Jin Ryu was dominant, and the offense was even more dominant. The Dodgers hit a record eight home runs, including two apiece by Joc Pederson and Kiké Hernandez, and former Dodger Zack Greinke got knocked around for 7 earned runs in 3.2 innings. Jeff and Vince are here to discuss Ryu, Pederson, and "Felix from Riverside," who called into AM 570 after the game to complain that the Dodgers...
