    Bauer was on the UCLA teams at the only time I ever paid attention to college baseball in my life. He was always better than Gerrit Cole at UCLA even though Cole got all the attention. Dude might be a self righteous headcase, but he'll come in every day, work his ass off in his training, film study, analytics and what not, and always give his all to be the best he can be.

    Molly Knight
    @molly_knight

    Earlier this week I thought we were finally working toward a system of consequences for men in MLB who harass women. Then the Dodgers awarded Trevor Bauer a record breaking contract today. It was such a bummer:

    Molly Knight
    The Dodgers didn’t need Bauer to repeat as champions. Their team chemistry is good. Their young core is solid. Why burn through the luxury tax threshold for someone who has a good chunk of the fan base upset right now? It sucks.


    Poor Molly Knight. She is clearly the victim in this huge tragedy.

    Got a mixed reaction to the Bauer signing.

    It's great to be a fan of a team that has the resources and isn't afraid to use them.

    On the other hand, I've come to admire how the current ownership and FO has built this current team.........through strong drafts, player development, some great waiver wire pickups and astute trades. Despite the resources at hand they've avoided the temptation to build via their checkbook. One exception to this on the current roster is Pollack. Now they add Bauer to that list and I don't see anything in his numbers that scream highest paid player in the game. This front office doesn't make many mistakes. Hope this isn't one of them.

    I'm a very liberal dude, but I will say that this "woke movement" shit is at the end of it's rope for me. Bauer was mean in a response to a woman that talked shit to him, so his followers went after her therefor cause the neckbeards went after this lady, it was Bauer's fault and therefore he is an enemy of women. GTFO with this shit. The dude has a female agent, one of the only in the game! Seriously, we have all said some stupid shit in the past, but many of us do learn and evolve. This whole going after people's past and loose connections to different ideals is so beyond fucking stupid at this point. And now I am mad for having to fucking defend Bauer. I have said that I don't like the guy for different reasons, but it seems like some of my intel may be outdated and I am willing to see if this guy has changed. Like I said, I know people that were around him both inside and outside a dugout, their reviews of the guy were shit. It matched up with everything I saw during the earlier years in his career, what scouts had said and we are still less than 2 years removed from this dude chucking a ball into the fountains in KC cause he was mad he was getting pulled. His teammates the last couple of years have said he is a different person, so I really hope so. Go after the dude for legit shit, not this made up fable to fit your agenda and boost your waning writing career.

    Harassed women? Molly Knight is creating a narrative here. She is referring to sexual or the demeaning women when she made that quote. That statement is implying Bauer has done that. No he trolled a girl on twitter for saying something overtly inaccurate. If the person he trolled was a male would she get revved up over harassing a man?

    I counter. how about Cole "harassing" Bauer many times to the media? Can she retroactively make a post about us moving "towards men harassing MEN" when Cole signed?

    Obviously I'm being sensational in my analogy but at least I'm not purposely creating a false narrative like this Molly chick did. Fake news. Whatever pushes the women's rights agenda.

    I never heard of Molly Knight until this thread. Based on her writing thus far, she won't make me forget my all time favorite author - Flannery O'Connor.

    Know why I love Flannery's writing? Because she's the greatest writer I've ever read. I don't care what her politics or gender were. She was nails as a writer. Molly Knight? I just looked up some of her content. Small sample size, but nothing I read sounded amazing or exceptional or rare. It might have been any tepid garbage that's all over the interwebz. She strikes me as thoroughly unimpressive.

    I'm as conservative as @ColoradoKidWitGame is liberal. And his last take was dead on <insert slow clap gif>.

    Thinking, ethical people of all political stripes are sick of this cancel culture horseshit. Let's all grow up and move on.

    As for Molly... she can fuck off. That's all I have to say on that topic. She may be best selling on the NYTimes charts,, but that doesn't mean shit to me.

    He's kind of like Trump in the sense where you just wish he would shut up sometimes. I don't agree with some of what he says but when he went after the Astros, I loved that. He keeps getting called misogynist on twitter because he responds to females who go after him then play the victim card, but he has gone overboard. I don't think he's as bad of a guy as some make it out to be, but no ones perfect.

    Many women demand to be treated as equals. I agree. Treat them equally. Then they engage in polemics or Twitter wars or whatever ... and then they balk at tough talk when that is part of being equal.

    Want to play, bitch? Then play. Just don't complain when you get a bloody nose. That happens.

    Bauer has some question marks for me, but based on the narrative from some media and fans you’d think he’s one of the worst guys in baseball. He’s a Twitter troll, I don’t like it, but damn he’s not a domestic abuser, slacker, or a drug addict. Hell, even when he cheats he can’t do it without telling everyone. My biggest concern was his cheating and what would happen if MLB cracked down on it, but the 2 year deal makes that less of a concern.

    There are worse guys to root for than Bauer. He works hard and I suspect he is on our team because he wanted to be a Dodger as much as we wanted him.

    Very sad news about Pedro Gomez.

    58 is way too young.
