First, we say a word about the horrible tragedy that happened in Boston on Monday. Then, it's onto some baseball talk.
We both saw "42" over the weekend, and that's where we start. We both give it a favorable review. Jackie Robinson has no equal. He was not only an amazing baseball player and athlete, but also -- more importantly -- an amazing man.
It's an awkward transition into the next topic: the Zack Greinke-Carlos Quentin brawl that resulted in the Dodgers losing their No. 2 pitcher for at least a couple months. Yes, Quentin still sucks.
There are some Dodgers off to good starts -- Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Hyun-jin Ryu -- and some off to not-so-good starts -- mainly Matt Kemp. It's not time to be overly concerned yet, but every day that passes and Kemp isn't showing signs of breaking out of his slump just adds to that.
We head to the farm and talk about our weekly Yasiel Puig update. He's really good at baseball and should be really good at it when he gets his chance in the majors. Also, Scott Van Slyke is on fire -- almost literally. And Zach Lee is pitching like the team's top prospect so far this season.
Finally, we close with some good listener questions. It's our favorite part of the show, so keep those questions coming.
