A lot happened in the last week, with the Dodgers playing their worst baseball of the season for about a week, exacerbated by injuries to starting pitchers Walker Buehler and Dustin May.

Kenley Jansen also had his two worst games of the season, so we broke down what could and should happen with the Dodgers closer situation, and why making a switch isn’t always as easy as it might seem.

Please send your questions, Dodgers-related or not, to, or tweet us at @ericstephen or @jacobburch. Special thanks to producer extraordinaire Brian Salvatore for making us sound presentable.

Dodgers rewind

On the heels of Gavin Lux hitting two home runs in a game last week, this week we look back at Cody Ross, who homered twice and drove in seven runs for the Dodgers on April 13, 2006, in his 25th major league game, only to be designated for assignment four days later to make room on the active roster for Oscar Robles.
