    This is great. Bring in all the questionable humans who have had issues with the league - this guy Watkins, Bauer, etc.

    Do you guys think we could swing a trade for Altuve? lol

    i think they cave too
    like you said before dave and BJK are as woke as they come and are likely pushing for him to be released
    probably doing everything they can to get something right up until the deadline
    would have been cool to see the team stand behind him and just welcome him back
    pretty sure the guys on the team stand behind him

    Didn't like the signing in the first place. Never liked his "smartest man in the room" schtick. That said (and been said many times) he was never convicted of anything and was punished more severely than some than were convicted.

    He should be allowed to ply his trade, whether it's in LA or somewhere else.

    As I said in other posts, given the circumstances, we need to keep him. If the situation was different and he was released by another team and we could sign him for 2023 at $750k, I'd say jump all over that low-risk no-brainer signing, so why give that golden opportunity to a competitor? Now, if he was a free agent and the price tag was millions, then hell no. But we're already on the hook for the vast majority of his contract, and we whiffed on Verlander, DeGrom, et al, while Buehler is out, Heaney and Anderson are gone... so why the hell not keep WHAT WE'RE PAYING FOR AND HAVE A NEED FOR? Releasing him to appease BJK and the rest of the woke crowd in this soft, soft world we've turned into just hurts this team more and potentially makes a competitor stronger. Let him pitch in Blue - it's just common sense.

    Ha - they'd better not. But who the hell knows anymore? Like I said yesterday, I think MLB wants us to release Bauer. Chapman has already been accepted back into the good graces of the league.

    Just an added thought... there should be an arbitration system to determine who pays what for situations like this. If the Dodgers decide to cut ties with Bauer and another team wants to sign him, an arbitrator should make a judgement on an equitable split - say Dodgers pay 40% and the other team 60% of his contract, or whatever. Why should the competitor benefit so greatly? It's not like the Dodgers deserve a punishment - they've pretty much handled this by the book since day one.

    My thoughts exactly! He loves LA and I have no doubt he'd be down with a league minimum/minor league camp invite type situation.

    Played with him before High School, and against him at Chatsworth.

    I'll take Bauer back under 1 condition. Set him up with Dave's daughter.
