Dodgers: Trevor Bauer Suggests Mookie Betts and Tacos Helped Him Decide on LA

En route to LA to make his deal official, new Dodgers starter Trevor Bauer spent some time interacting with fans on social media about what you expect on a Tuesday. Tacos.

From that point on, the suggestions dropped in the comments… along with the memes and photo edits.

The 2020 NL Cy Young award winner reportedly agreed to a 3-year, $102 million deal with the Dodgers on Friday. So, understandably, tacos are a perfect reward for a deal of that magnitude. And a great way to cap off his long and winding trip through free agency.

Moreover, a fan reminded the soon-to-be-official Dodger that his new teammate — the great giver of tacos — Mookie Betts is a two-time “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” winner. Jokingly, Bauer suggested that just may have played a small role in his decision to sign with LA.

I’m sure $85 million over the first two seasons of the deal played a much larger role.

The right-hander appeared to be in a playful mood with his new fanbase as they connected over something that’s hard to disagree on… tacos are great.

Bauer and the Dodgers report to Camelback Ranch for spring training 2021 in exactly one week.
