Two teams that won more than 105 regular season games. Two teams that have been unbelievable all year. Chris Taylor with a walk-off 2-run homer and we've got ourselves a series. Let's talk about how each team got here. (12:15) Someone asked me about a comment from our YouTube live show last night. This person wanted me to explain my comments on the Dodgers being bullies and disliked by all other teams. (17:20) The San Diego Padres fired Jayce Tingler after two seasons.

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers questions from listeners about the San Francisco Giants. Among the questions asked and answered are: If Brandon Crawford keeps up his play for the duration of the season, what kind of contract is he looking at? Would the Giants bring him back over Corey Seager/Trevor Story? What’s going to happen when Darin Ruf and Brandon Belt come off the IL? Steven Duggar and LaMonte Wade Jr. are both playing well, but they can’t keep too many left handed outfielders and they won’t cut loose on Mike Tauchman due to him being under team control for the next couple years. Has a team ever signed one of its longest contracts for a player who is a defensive liability and plays the same position as guy who hit .326 & won the Silver Slugger Award? Donovan Solano's track record against RHP is not as strong as Tommy La Stella's but if Crawford's everyday player, isn't Solano? How much longer do the giants keep Tauchman on the roster? He’s had a rough month and besides the amazing catch, has done nothing. What should we make of Curt Casali's struggles, and at what point do you think the Giants will consider cutting him, assuming the performance at the plate remains the same? Some national media still see the Giants as sellers this year with many veterans in the last year of their deal. Do you see the Giants selling for future pieces if they are still in contention for a playoff spot? What's your read on the Cubs in this post-Theo Epstein era?

Duncan Robinson was a 2016 draft pick by the Cubs, a pitcher out of Dartmouth, who  pitched (and succeeded!) at every level in the Cubs system up through Major League Spring Training. He recently decided to end his playing career to go to law school, but he sat down to talk with us about his experience in the Cubs system, and it’s a really interesting, detailed story. Topics: the help Kyle Hendricks gives to young pitchers; how a pitcher uses the Cubs IVY app to create a scouting report; finding out Theo Epstein is watching you warm up in college; how teams talk to players before the draft; the first day in a big league clubhouse; working Uber and retail while also rehabbing from Tommy John as a minor leaguer; and the politics of baseball.
