 The NL East is surprisingly competitive | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2116

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. It's the Friday edition of Locked on MLB, so start your weekend off with our podcast to get you ready for baseball. In Segment 1, we take a look at three series this weekend worth watching, as the Houston Astros visit the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals renew their rivalry (wait, it is still a rivalry right?) and the Washington Nationals meet the Philadelphia Phillies in an NL East battle. Speaking of the NL East, Joe Nocco joins the show in Segment 2 to discuss the New York Mets coming off a sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves. What's the biggest concern for the Mets? How big of a priority should the catching position be? Where do the Mets fall in the suddenly competitive NL East? Plus, what's next for Matt Harvey and how should fans react to him?  Segment 3 is a look at Albert Pujols as he approaches 3,000 career hits, how he's judged now and how he'll eventually be remembered.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Matt Harvey needs to do better but so do we | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1284

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. The story in New York this week is focused on Matt Harvey and what he did in San Diego, er actually what he did in Beverly Hills. According to a tabloid, Harvey went to Beverly Hills following a day game in San Diego before returning the next day in time for a night game. What happened in between is  unclear because the original report states two different things from two different random people, but baseball news media has treated it as fact that Harvey was acting irresponsible the night before a game. We discuss Harvey and how the story was aggregated throughout the internet and why it is all wrong.  Our second segment of the day looks at why the Arizona Diamondbacks are for real and the best regular season team in the National League.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Dodgers face conundrum with Corey Seager out | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1393

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Things weren't going well for the Los Angeles Dodgers coming into the week. They only got worse on Monday when it was announced Corey Seager would miss the remainder of the season with a UCL injury that will force Seager to undergo Tommy John surgery. In Segment 1, we discuss how the Dodgers got here and what they can or can't do to get out of it. It starts with Manny Machado, but that might not be as likely as many fans expect.  In Segment 2, we take a look at newly-released odds for World Series, pennants, MVP and Cy Young courtesy of Bovada.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 The Yankees aren't dead after all | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1481

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Monday means it's time for Power Rankings to see who had the best week in baseball, but this week there is a bit of a twist. There weren't enough teams with good enough weeks to fill all 10 usual spots, so instead of rewarding those teams with a top-10 placement, we look at the eight teams worthy of a spot.  Sitting on a 9-game winning streak and coming off sweeps of the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels, the Yankees are on top and look like the team we all expected them to be. They hold the No. 1 spot over the San Francisco Giants, who finished the week 5-2 with a big weekend series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Seattle Mariners are third this week followed by the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates rounding out the top five.  The final segment is a look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and why they have the most important week in baseball. We'll see how everyone responds to Cody Bellinger's benching as the Dodgers hit the road for four games in Arizona against the Diamondbacks and a three game weekend set against the Padres.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Assessing the post-World Series Cubs and Indians | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1664

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. On the 20th episode of Locked on MLB we take a look at the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, where they've been since meeting in the World Series in 2016 and where they're headed. Both teams made the playoffs last year but suffered disappointing finishes. One was more disappointing than the other.  The Cubs seem to have the safer, wider window, while the Indians could shut before we know it. What can they do to prevent it? In the second segment of today's episode, we look at the Baltimore Orioles and what a blow up might look like. We also compare their process to that of the Cincinnati Reds, who made mistakes along the way in their rebuild, mainly starting it too late. Are the Orioles suffering the same fate?

 West Coast is the best coast for a week | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1554

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. It's Monday, which means time for Power Rankings in segment 2, but the first segment takes a look back at the biggest stories of the weekend, including Johnny Cueto, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez,  Sean Manaea, Jose Bautista and Danny Farquhar.  The Phillies topped the Power Rankings last week for having the best week in baseball, but they weren't able to repeat despite a solid 5-2 record. Instead, it's the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers at the top of the list. The Phillies aren't far behind.  The third and final segment looks at the week ahead for the Atlanta Braves and why it's so important as they hit the road to take on the Reds and Phillies.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Don't rush to judgement about the Reds | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 978

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Today's show focuses solely on the Cincinnati Reds firing manager Bryan Price and what this means for their rebuild. While many are suggesting the firing of Price means the rebuild is thus far a failure, it seems to early to decide that. The team still has young players that are developing with a couple solid pieces. Price was never long for the job either way. The Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros made mistakes along the way; the Reds are no different. They can still be successful in the future and firing Price has little impact moving forward.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 Addressing the 7-7 Cubs with Ryan Davis | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2790

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Today's show welcomes in special guest Ryan Davis to discuss the state of the Chicago Cubs now and as a whole. Ryan joins the show in Segment 3.  First in Segment 1 we take a look around the league at what happened on Monday with scores and notes from each game, including Julio Teheran's outing against the Phillies, the Yankees thrashing the Marlins, the Astros continuing their offensive cold spell and the Nationals big comeback against the Mets.  Segment 2 is a brief rundown of Tuesday's games, highlighted by David Price and the Boston Red Sox taking on Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels.  Segment 3 is the highlight of the show as Ryan Davis of Locked on Cubs joins to discuss his concern level and what exactly is going wrong with the Cubs thus far. He serves as the voice of reason to those who want Chili Davis and Jim Hickey fired already without ignoring the problems the pitching staff and lineup have seen thus far.  After assessing the pitching, Ryan gives his thoughts on the lineup, including what to do with Ian Happ and Albert Almora and refreshing our memories on the one big thing the Cubs are missing (and getting back).  Finally, they look at the organization as a whole and some of the questions the team could face moving forward, including Addison Russell and Javier Baez in the middle infield, playing time for Happ and Almora and whether or not they made the right decision by holding most of their prospects and only acquiring Jose Quintana while spending money on the rest of the rotation.

 Gabe Kapler's Phillies had a week | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1758

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Start off the week with Power Rankings and a look at which teams had the best week in baseball. Last week, the Los Angeles Angels rode Shohei Ohtani to the top spot. After an undefeated week, they're still near the top but they didn't have the best week. That belongs to the Philadelphia Phillies, who also went 6-0, but it was the performances they got and why they needed them that put them at the top.  Before the Power Rankings in Segment 2, Segment 1 focuses on two of the bigger stories of the weekend. Bartolo Colon took a perfect game into the 8th inning for the Texas Rangers against the Houston Astros on Sunday Night Baseball before allowing a walk to Carlos Correa and a hit to Josh Reddick. His performance was already one of the best of the season, but what really stood out was how he did it and what others can learn from him. The other top story was the issue of scheduling with six cancellations on Sunday. Is there anything baseball can do to avoid cancellations due to early April weather in the future? Segment 2 focuses on the Power Rankings, with the Phillies, Angels and Boston Red Sox at the top.  Segment 3 takes a look at the team facing the most important week. Last week it was the Milwaukee Brewers. This week it's the Washington Nationals.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 Pirates early success and the rule of retaliation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2478

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. We've got a full show for our 15th episode, including an interview with Jason Rollison, the host and manager of Locked on Pirates to discuss the fast start by the surprise team in the NL Central.  Before the interview, Segment 1 is a quick rundown of Wednesday night's action with thoughts on each game, including a bullpen blow up for the Braves, a curious decision for the Reds, a scary moment for the Tigers and a no-hitter watch against the Mets.  Segment 2 is on the unwritten rule of retaliation, which we saw happen twice on Wednesday. First, the Padres and Rockies cleared dugouts and brawled when Luis Perdomo threw behind Nolan Arenado and Arenado threw punches at Perdomo. While Perdomo's glove toss is better than any pitch he's thrown this season, it will likely result in suspensions for him, Arenado and others involved. It then happened in Boston, when the Red Sox were upset because the Yankees might've broken another unwritten rule about sliding too hard, so they threw at Tyler Austin. Another brawl broke out, which leads to a discussion of whether or not the 'policing' should still be done by the players and what should happen as a result.  Segment 3 is our interview with Jason. He explains why what the Pirates are doing can be done all season long, the biggest reason for the early season success and some of the concerns surrounding the team. In addition, they take a look at the Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole era in Pittsburgh and how those two are viewed today.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 Daily Fantasy Baseball tips for early season success | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2027

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Today's episode features special guest Wes Anderson, a fantasy baseball expert, to discuss early season strategy and advice for daily fantasy baseball.  Before Wes joins in Segment 3, the show opens with a rundown of Tuesday night's action with takeaways from each game, including the Red Sox pummeling of the Yankees, Stephen Strasburg shutting down the Braves, Felix Hernandez the stopper and Andrelton Simmons the hitter.  Segment 2 looks at the San Francisco Giants and whether or not they'll be able to hang close enough in the standings to have a chance late in the season. With Johnny Cueto joining Jeff Samardzija and Madison Bumgarner on the disabled list, it'll be tough without the offense picking things up, especially with the upcoming schedule.  Finally in Segment 3, Wes offers his tips on navigating the early market in daily fantasy. He then gives his overvalued and undervalued players and what he's targeting for Wednesday's slate. You can follow Wes on Twitter at @wander34.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Today, we welcome our first guest to the show as New York Mets writer Joe Nocco joins the show to discuss what's gotten into the team. Has the early 8-1 start changed expectations for the Mets?

 No one had a better week than the Angels | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1657

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your daily national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke.  It's Monday, which means the show starts off with Power Rankings to see who had the best week in baseball. Other teams had better records but no team had a better week than the Los Angeles Angels, mostly thanks to Shohei Ohtani. They're at the top this week, but there are some interesting stories behind them, including the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates.  On Sunday, Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. While confronting the umpire, he made a comment about St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, which Molina took offense to and pushed his way toward Lovullo creating a bench-clearing situation. Molina wasn't ejected, but should he be fined or suspended? What about Lovullo? Who was the in the wrong? We discuss.  The final segment is a brief look at Giancarlo Stanton and the Washington Nationals struggling, and which team has the biggest week ahead.  Learn more about your ad choices.
