I like Joel Sherman a lot but this screams more just looking at fits and making a guess. By fit - Bauer is perfect here or in NY. But that doesn’t get you much farther

New York would have to pay me double to live there.  I hope Bauer has the same view of that dump.

Posted this at 1:30 today. Hmmmm...maybe my Spidy senses are correct.

Bauer - w/Yankees out of the picture and Mets a big question mark, I don't see too many teams lining up to throw @$30M/AAV at him. Dodgers don't need him and Boston seems unlikely. It wouldn't shock me if WS quietly got something done here.

This seems to be exactly what is going on. I don't believe Bauer is an option for us, unfortunately. I think Sherman was just taking a wild guess because we could use a starting pitcher, and now people are going to run with it.

Does Bauer have any connection to Katz at all? That would be an interesting angle if they have crossed paths professionally.

Where do you think he lands?

I doubt it. Timelines don’t match up.

The one thing that crossed my mind here is how much TLR and Bauer line up politically.  I am sure it will come down to money, but if anyone out there might actually be excited by our drunken clown of a manager,  it might be him.

Just going to throw this out there. To me it was odd to see Bauer do a whole Vlog on the White Sox / La Russa drama. He seemed to have a vested interest.

I paid attention to this during Bauer's vlog post about the La Russa DUI stuff and was looking for any indication of being turned off by it and if anything he seemed to be closer to defending La Russa if anything else. Maybe I'll have to watch it again, but nothing about it made me think it hurt Bauer's chances of coming here.

That being said, I hope Joel Sherman is absolutely wrong here.

Great question. I suppose I would guess the Mets if I had to pick.

As much as I would love to sign Bauer, I am fine with the plan to go hard after Springer instead. Lock down the positional side of things with Springer and Vaughn, and then just look to upgrade the starting pitching year by year. If that means starting this year with Richards and Quintana, I am fine with that. Eventually we will have to land a big gun.

Bauer in NYC or Boston seems like worst case possible scenarios for him. The local media will go to war with him every time he does something stupid,  which is too often.

That wouldn't happen in Chicago or LA?

If bringing back TLR was enough to get Jerry to open his wallet, then it was worth it. 

There, I said it. Even if TLR is a drunk asshole.

No. Not even close.  Chicago media protects the teams a lot more. In NYC and Boston they burn players down for stories.  Look at the non- reaction over the TLR stuff. That doesn't happen in those markets.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? 

I don't think the Sox could have gotten away with hiring TLR if they had that type of media presence. They'd have torn them to shreds.

That's literally the point.  Chicago protected TLR. They'd protect Bauer too. Dude would be regular back page news as a Met.

I wouldn't go quite there..........if ever there was an offseason where bargains could be had even at the top of the market, it's this one. I have no idea what the top offers from teams are going to be like...... for all we know, the Sox could get Bauer for slightly more than they were willing to pay Wheeler last winter.

Did they really protect TLR though?  Seems like every journalist & columnist ripped the hire.

Sox don’t win bidding wars. Pretty close to 0 chance this happens. Don’t get sucked in yet once again

What?  Like one guy ripped into it. Most others pretty much ignored it. A couple even made excuses for him.

What would the odds be on Bauer landing with WS?

50% maybe?

  • White Sox = 50%
  • Mets = 10%
  • Yankees = 10%
  • Blue Jays = 10%
  • Dodgers = 10%
  • Angels = 10%
