Speaking of that foreign substance crackdown, the Dodgers were named in a recent report as the team with the highest increase in spin rate. But it did not take into account the fact that LA added in high spin rate guys in 2021 and let low-spin rate guys walk in free agency. So…that’s odd.

  1. Bauer is whacked. Brings all this tar cheating issues to light, then fully partakes in it, and now feels insulted and dissed by Rosenthal. Bauer will have a losing record, 4 plus era and waste of 35m bucks. Worst signing ever. Dude shud just stfu and get counseling for his childhood bullying episodes.
