  1. Congrats to Bauer. Probably should have stayed with the Reds as the Dodgers are looking really bad right now. Clueless manager, no offense, terrible bullpen, questionable defense, runners stealing at will. The only positive is the starting rotation. It’s still early in the season and they have had their run of injuries but they just look pretty pathetic on the field. Hate to say this but the Padres and Giants are playing with emotion.
