 Your team is interested in Bryce Harper | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1390

Welcome to Locked on MLB, the national daily podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke.  Today's episode looks at Bryce Harper's upcoming free agency and the thought that certain teams might not be interested in him or need him because of prospects or other players blocking him. That's funny, because no prospect is getting in the way of your team being interested in Harper. The same can be said for Manny Machado, despite his slow start to the season. Segment 1 serves as a reminder that every team will be interested in Harper and Machado this offseason.  Segment 2 looks at the season debut of Adam Wainwright, who is in the final year of his contract. Some Cardinals fans weren't happy he replaced Jack Flaherty in the rotation and Wainwright's performance won't change anyone's mind. It's a bit of a sad end, if this is how it goes for Wainwright this season. We look at how Cubs fans are fortunate they won't have to go through the same process with Jake Arrieta.  The final segment touches on the injury to Brewers closer Corey Knebel and how it impacts the team moving forward.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Charlie Blackmon cashes in | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1613

Welcome to Locked on MLB, the daily podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network and hosted by Tommy Stokke. Congratulations to Charlie Blackmon, who got paid on Wednesday. Well, he at least signed a contract that is going to get him paid handsomely for the next three years with the potential for cool checks in four years and a fifth after that.  The Rockies announced the extension, which comes out to five years with $94 million guaranteed. He gets three years before his first player option kicks in at $21 million. The final year is a player option guaranteed at $10 million, with the likelihood it becomes $15 million and the potential to reach $18 million.  That's a lot of million.  We break down the deal for Blackmon and the Rockies and then see who might use that as a comparison this offseason.  The final segment is a quick look at the two starts in New York as the Mets are 4-1 and the Yankees are 4-2. Which start is more impressive? We say the Mets, but it is only five games. The Yankees won't be tested until they play the Red Sox next week before ending April with a tough stretch. The Mets next test comes against the Washington Nationals this weekend.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 You can worry about Kenley Jansen | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1591

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your national podcast covering Major League Baseball on a daily basis. Locked on MLB is part of the Locked on Podcast Network and hosted by Tommy Stokke. Dodgers fans may want to skip to segment 2 because our first segment is on Kenley Jansen and his uncharacteristic beginning to the season. His velocity is down, his delivery is out of whack and the results aren't good. After giving up a home run last week to Joe Panik in a loss to the Giants, he blew a 3-run lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks with walks to Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock and a home run to Chris Owings. That's two home runs on the year allowed for Jansen, for those counting at home. The walks are concerning as is the velocity. What does this all mean for the Dodgers? Let's discuss.  Segment No. 2 covers extra innings and whether or not the league needs to address it. The D-backs and Dodgers played 15 innings on Monday and were a walk-off Jeff Mathis hit away from seeing two position players take the mound to decide the game. Maybe the solution isn't starting a runner at second base, but there is a solution that makes some sense to try. Admittedly, most fans won't be receptive to this unoriginal idea.  Segment 3 takes a look around the league at Tuesday's game action as Chris Archer looks to stop the Yankees (assuming they play), Kershaw Day is here and the Washington Nationals may never lose.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Defending Gabe Kapler | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1442

Welcome to Locked on MLB, your national podcast covering Major League Baseball on a daily basis. Locked on MLB is part of the Locked on Podcast Network and hosted by Tommy Stokke.  Monday means the beginning of a new segment. This season, we will have a top-10 power ranking revealed every Monday. It won't be a traditional season-long power ranking. Instead, it'll be a look at who had the best week in baseball by team. From the Nationals at No. 1 to the Giants at No. 10, we go through the teams from last week.  Then, we try to do the unthinkable and defend Philadelphia Phillies manager Gabe Kapler. Spoiler: Kapler didn't make our Top 10 this week in the Power Rankings. Kapler was heavily scrutinized this weekend for his managerial decisions, mainly surrounding his bullpen. But three games for a rookie manager won't decide whether or not he's fit for the job or what to expect from the Phillies this season. Mistakes happen, but because Kapler is different than most (all) other managers, he isn't getting any benefit of the doubt.  The show comes to a close with  few thoughts on the debut of Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani, who picked up his first win in Major League Baseball with a solid performance against the Oakland Athletics.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 D-backs face potential letdown vs Rockies | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1340

Welcome to Locked on MLB, the national podcast covering Major League Baseball as part of the Locked on Podcast Network. Hosted by Tommy Stokke, Locked on MLB is your daily podcast for the latest on what's happening in baseball.  Today's episode looks back at Opening Day, what was relevant and what is just an overreaction. There were some things we can take away, such as the Red Sox bullpen, Chase Anderson being good and Gabe Kapler's over-managing. On the flip side, we probably don't have to worry about Clayton Kershaw taking a loss, Carlos Martinez struggling with command or Corey Kluber losing in a complete game.  A few interesting games on Friday night are on the slate, including Johnny Cueto and the Giants against Alex Wood and the Dodgers. Aaron Sanchez taking the mound against the Yankees should be fun to watch, too. But the focus game tonight is the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Colorado Rockies. We explain why the D-backs are facing a trap game and could be in for a letdown.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 Official 2018 predictions entering Opening Day | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1482

With Opening Day for the 2018 Major League Baseball season here, Locked On MLB host Tommy Stokke takes you through his official predictions, from award winners to division winners to World Series champion.  The season preview begins with a run through of all the win totals provided by Bovada as well as where the general public is leaning for each team. The Astros and Dodgers have the highest total at 96.5 wins. The lowest total belongs to the Miami Marlins at 64.5. People love taking the over. It shows in the numbers.  After going over all of the totals, we look at the five best fake bets. The Dodgers, Giants, Diamondbacks, Reds and Twins are the teams we're taking in one way or another.  Then, we look at division winners and MVP and Cy Young predictions before ending the show with the World Series call. Be careful, there's a lot of chalk in here.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 Giants already fighting uphill battle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1318

Welcome to Locked On MLB, your daily national MLB show hosted by Tommy Stokke as part of the Locked On Podcast Network.  In today's episode, we recap some of the weekend's big news leading with two significant injuries to the San Francisco Giants and their starting rotation. Madison Bumgarner broke his hand and will miss around two months. Jeff Samardzija will miss about a month with a pectoral injury. Can the Giants survive without them? What will it take. If not, the Giants face an interesting summer with possibly changes coming that could alter the immediate future of the franchise. Those moves should at least be discussed should the season quickly go south.  Also making news this weekend was the Philladelphia Phillies signing prospect Scott Kingery to a contract extension. Then on Monday, the Arizona Diamondbacks reportedly agreed to an extension with Ketel Marte. What do these extensions mean for the players, teams and future of contracts and free agency?  The show ends with a quick look at Greg Bird and how the Yankees were smart to sort of prepare for a possible injury, which Bird has now suffered. Other teams may regret not taking advantage of the free agent market in the way the Yankees did.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 D-backs have outfield injury to overcome again | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1310

Welcome to Locked on MLB, the national baseball podcast as part of the Locked On Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke.  Today's show discusses the Arizona Diamondbacks dealing with yet another outfield injury, which seems to happen every season. This time it's to newly-acquired Steven Souza, who was injured diving for a ball in the outfield. While nothing definitive is known about his shoulder injury, it looks like he could miss some time for the D-backs. Who will replace him and will the D-backs be able to overcome the injury early in the season? Greg Holland is still a free agent, and teams always need relievers. Who will step up and make a move for the closer? Holland saved 41 games last year for the Rockies for his terrible second half could be scaring teams away. The Cardinals and Mariners are two of the teams that should give Holland a call, but some others make sense, too.  The show ends with a look around the league at notable performances and injuries, including Jake Arrieta's Phillies debut, Michael Conforto's big day for the Mets and Matt Kemp's role with the Dodgers. The Athletics have another injured pitcher; so do the Mets. The Indians appear to have avoided a scare, though. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

 What can break the Dodgers? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1393

Welcome to episode 3 of Locked on MLB with your host Tommy Stokke. Locked on MLB is part of the Locked on Sports Podcast Network.  Today's episode takes a look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and Justin Turner's injury. Will the Dodgers regret not going after a certain free agent recently picked up? Where could the Dodgers go run this season after their World Series run last year? MLB released a list of top-10 lineups on Wednesday, and the Oakland Athletics came in at No. 10. Their inclusion on the list seemed to confused a lot of people, which is confusing because it's a powerful lineup. The Astros topped the list at No. 1.  The show comes to a close with a look at injuries and notable performances as fantasy drafts get finalized before Opening Day.  For more information on Locked on MLB or for advertising opportunities, email at stokke@lockedonmlb.com.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 The Ronald Acuna Decision | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1258

Locked on MLB hosted by Tommy Stokke discusses the latest news in Major League Baseball.  Today's show discusses the Ronald Acuna decision for the Atlanta Braves as the baseball's top prospect was sent down to Triple-A to begin the season despite his strong spring and minor league track record. Was it the right decision for the Braves? How can Major League Baseball fix the problem with service time manipulation?  Also on the show, Alex Cobb has reportedly agreed to sign with the Baltimore Orioles on a four-year deal worth $57 million. Waiting paid off for Cobb, but was this a smart deal for the Orioles? The show ends with a look around spring training at some of the injuries around baseball and who could be at risk of missing Opening Day.  Find more Locked On MLB at lockedonmlb.com.

 Jose Altuve and Eugenio Suarez get paid | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1709

Locked On MLB launches with host Tommy Stokke talking about the last news across Major League Baseball.

For current local shows, you can check out Locked On Reds, Locked On Angels, Locked On Pirates, Locked On Cubs, Locked On Yankees, Locked On Twins and Locked On Orioles.  On Friday, Jose Altuve and Eugenio Suarez agreed to contract extensions. The Astros second baseman reportedly agreed to a 5-year, $151-million extension beginning in 2020. Suarez signed a 7-year, $66-million extension with an option that could make it 8-years, $79 million. They're two different extensions, but they're both interesting in their own right. What kind of impact will each deal have on the market moving forward?  The final segment discusses the odds released by Bovada for Cy Young and MVP. Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw are the Cy Young favorites. Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are the MVP favorites. Are they worth the investment? What other players offer good value?
