Nick Punto #7 of the Los Angeles Dodgers attempts to turn a double play as AJ Pollock #11 of the Arizona Diamondbacks slides into second base at Chase Field on September 17, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Should a private conversation made public get a coach fired? Are the Dodgers picking the wrong time to be in a slump? And what kind of wedding gift do you buy the couple that has everything? 

Those questions must mean it's time for sports and we're joined by Andy and Brian Kamenetzky who have covered sports for ESPN and Los Angeles Times. 

Let's start off with the Boys in Blue. If the Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight in Phoenix they'll be National League West champs. But they have not played well lately, losing 9 of their last 13 games. 

For argument's sake let's assume they win tonight. Then there will be 9 games left before the playoffs start. What should the Dodgers do with the time? Rest players? Keep playing hard to roll into the playoffs with momentum? There always a lot of debate on this.

Last Saturday, the UCLA Bruins football team came from 18 points down to beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln. This has put the heat on Nebraska coach Bo Pelini in a very unexpected way.  

Sports leagues are always searching for ways to give fans an interactive experience when they watch. But golf takes it to level that's hard to believe: spectators in the gallery or TV viewers can alert officials if a golfer violates a rule.

For anyone who watched the Floyd Mayweather/Canelo Alvarez fight on Saturday, it was clear that Mayweather was dominant. Everyone except for one very important person. 

The start of the NBA season is about a month and half away and the big question that hangs over the Lakers is the status of Kobe Bryant. How's the Black Mamba doing?

The Sacramento Kings have decided to something unique for their opener.  

Lebron James may be a two-time NBA champion but now he has 3 rings.
