  1. Hmmm,Sticky Fingers Bauer influencing the pitching staff…Get angry to throw faster?No,get sticky!

  2. Who cares the Asstros did it for years and it was part of their 2017 cheating scandal even if it’s not official

    1. I am a Dodger fan. However, we can’t be outraged by the Astros, yet say “oh, well” in regards to these new allegations against our team, because other teams did it too.

  3. Sticky Fingers Bauer will soon be going back to being an average pitcher…I laughed when I read that Jansen needed to get mad to gain velocity.I’m sure he was schooled by Sticky.
