Smith joined us to talk about his career to this point, what he expects for 2013 and a bit about some of the pitchers he faced last season in Double-A.
We talk about the Dodgers bringing back Sandy Koufax as a special advisor to Chairman Mark Walter. This was long overdue.
We touch on the ridiculous deal the Dodgers are reportedly set to sign with Time Warner Cable -- a $7- or $8-billion pact. Remarkable.
We also go over some brief scouting reports on some of the Dodgers' newest international signings.
Finally, we close with listener questions (keep 'em coming!). Should the Dodgers retire No. 34 in honor of Fernando Valenzuela? Is Ned Colletti hoping Yasiel Puig hits enough to be the team's fourth outfielder? Is the Dodgers' "Whatever it takes" attitude good or should we wait and see how it plays out?
