First up, we talk about the most inevitable of the most inevitable -- Chad Billingsley needs Tommy John surgery. Petriello wrote a great post about this happening. I think we were all hoping/expecting it to happen more than two starts into the season.
We also talk about Matt Kemp's struggles and how he may or may not be ready to break out of his slump.
The three of us also talk about the incredibly bad Luis Cruz, which prompted someone on Twitter to play the race card. Sigh.
We also were watching the Dodger game -- a 7-2 victory -- while recording, so you'll hear a little about how Mark Ellis is doing really well.
Finally, we close with some listener questions -- a lot of them directed toward Petriello. Some were good and some were funny.
Big thanks to Petriello for sticking around for the recording. It was great fun.
