We neglected to talk about Yasiel Puig's arrest not because we were condoning his actions or trying to give him a pass, but simply because we forgot.
Masahiro Tanaka and Clayton Kershaw were hot topics, and both could be long- and longer-term Dodgers in the not-too-distant-near-future.
Jared went to the Winter Development Program at Dodger Stadium and caught up with real friend of the show Ross Stripling. This is kid great.
Episode dedicationsFinally, we close with Q&A. The questions were good and plentiful. We love it, even if we couldn't understand a few of them.
Jared: Yasiel Puig
Dustin: Norihiro Nakamura
