  1. AF knows how to fly under the radar. I really thought the Mets would scoop up Bauer. But then AF pulls Bauer right out from under them. First Mookie, last year, and now Bauer. These are huge moves that equate to championships. I think AF decided that he likes the idea of a dynasty.

    1. It helps when, like Gerrit Cole with the Yankees, Bauer wanted to play in SoCal (where he grew up and played college ball)

    1. Number 4. You think Price, Urias or May get the 3 spot? I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t Buehler, Bauer, Kershaw or Kershaw, Bauer, Buehler.

      1. Buehler, Bauer, Kershaw, Price, Urias makes the most since to me but the ppolitics of it….hmmmm….I don’t envy whoever makes the call.

        1. Buehler, Kershaw, Bauer, Urias and May. What? No Price? Oh, he’ll be traded. With the money they save on Mr. price, they’ll be able to re-sign JT.

  2. I originally was against this move but I am now convinced this is the kind of move you make to repeat as World Champions. Then, you start thinking about and planning for a dynasty. This could happen. Just get JT NOW………
