HR 2: Who Ya Got?!

Hour Two started with the fellas wondering what LA team is most likely to win a title this year: the Lakers, the Dodgers or the Rams? Also, wing trivia since it's National Wing Day and talk on the Dodgers with the MLB trading deadline a day away. Plus, a look back at one of the darkest days in the NBA: The Malice At The Palace. And, "The Dump!"


HR 1: Needed It

First and foremost, it's National Wing Day! Then, Travis and Sliwa talked Dodgers, as they got a big win over the NL West leading San Francisco Giants. And, why isn't Walker Buehler not getting enough "love?" Also, Sliwa wants the Lakers to do "absolutely nothing" tonight in NBA Draft UNLESS it's a trade. Plus, the "Bunch Of Funch!"


HR 2: Closed Window?

With reports that the Lakers are "scared the LeBron/AD window is closing fast," the guys wondered who would be a good 3rd star for the team to take the pressure off their stars. And, more on the throwing error from Cody Bellinger that cost the Dodgers a win vs the SF Giants. Plus, a new segment called "Cap Or Fact." Also, "The Dump!"


HR 2: Coming Home?

The 2nd Hour of the show started with the guys talking about their observations from the various events of the Tokyo Olympics. Then, some talk on DeMar DeRozen's comments on "Club Shay Shay" about possibily joining the Lakers, at a discounted rate. And, does Anthony Davis need to play at an MVP-level for the Lakers to be successful next season? Plus, is Matthew Stafford the missing link to a Super Bowl title for the Rams? Also, "The Dump!"
