It's amazing in all the analysis I've heard this week of the Dodgers, Bauer's name rarely comes up
If Bauer didn't get himself suspended and they still traded for Scherzer they could have had 3 of like the top 5-10 pitchers in baseball PLUS Kershaw and Urias. Absolutely insane.

6 miles from Angel Stadium
Fenway Park, the oldest stadium in MLB, the green monster, the Williams seat, the Pesky pole, the green monster, the triangle in center.

Wrigley Filed, second oldest stadium in MLB, the ivy, the bleachers, the fans across the street watching from porches and rooftops.

Dodger Stadium, the third oldest stadium in MLB, a dump of stadium that is a ballache to get to and from, fans get there in the 2nd inning and leave in the 7th, a monstrosity that has the charm of a three decker in southie.
I couldn’t disagree more. Beautiful stadium. The traffic sucks, but once you get in, it’s great. The Giants do have better fans and a better ballpark.

Do they get Scherzer if Bauer was still around?

I'll take your word for it, it looks sterile and ratty, a lot of those seats look less than desirable to view a game from, free binoculars for many of them.

Dodgers May end up with AA players on the Ws roster

John Philips could have done that

I’ve only been to one game there, in the late 90’s, and it felt a bit dated back then. But the site lines were great, and they’ve put a ton of money into a Janet Marie Smith-led renovation, so from what I can see it’s a pretty great ballpark these days. I mean, Fenway was pretty dingy in the 90’s too before HWL took over and JMS went to work.
