Locked On Dodgers: Adrian Gonzalez Retires, Jose Mota Coming Home, and a Human Face of the Lockout

Click here to listen

Adrian Gonzalez, who last played for the Dodgers in 2017 and last played in the big leagues with the Mets in 2018, officially retired from baseball this weekend, so we spent some time looking back at his excellent career in Dodger Blue. Also, reports came out that Jose Mota, former Angels broadcaster and the son of Dodgers legend Manny Mota, will be joining the Dodgers broadcast team, although with his experience in both television and radio and in both English and Spanish, it’s hard to know at this point what role(s) he will fill. And finally, Jeff talks about Payton Henry, who made his major-league debut in 2021 and is a more human face for the lockout than the tired, overly simplistic “millionaires versus billionaires” tweets that get thrown around.
