 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.

 Meet the Amazing 8-1 Mets | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2013

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, 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? What has Mickey Callaway brought to this team? Adrian Gonzalez wasn't a popular signing, but he's produced early. What does that mean for Dom Smith? They also talk Amed Rosario, the catching duo and what could possibly derail them this season.  Before Joe's interview, Locked on Shohei Ohtani continues with a look at the latest odds for him to win AL Cy Young, AL MVP...or both.  Get caught up around the league in Segment 3 with the latest injuries and notable performances, including Greg Holland's debut and the future in Cincinnati.  Learn more about your ad choices.

 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.

 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
