  • I want to see how this plays out. I've always felt there's a severe double standard when it comes to players who have ran afoul of moral issues. Usually the team who the player was employed by suffers the consequences, as they're pressed by fans and the media to cut ties and oftentimes are stuck paying his salary, but then another team comes along and scoops them up, no questions asked. It's happened with Michael Vick, Kareem Hunt, DeShaun Watson, and I'm sure many others I can't think of.

    In this case the Dodgers will pay the bill, cut Bauer, and another team will pluck him off the scrap heap and pay him just above minimum wage to be a major part of their rotation.

    Let's see how it goes.

      Besides his current sexual related issues I believe he's widely recognized as a deplorable teammate and company employee. He probably voted for Trump too.

            Will he get signed elsewhere? There is one very pro Bauer owner in my league and a whole lot of of guys who would not even bid on the guy, including me. I fear the pro-Bauer owner will get him from $1 or $3 if he does sign somewhere. Hate to see value going to another contender, but I don't want to get stuck with him by price enforcing. But it just takes two and I don't know the feelings on rostering him of all 14 league members.

              I would still take Bauer at a discounted price. It sounds to me like the sex incident(s) was(were) consensual and she wanted to make a small fortune from it. Her text messages to Bauer show her saying that she wanted to be choked and roughed up the next time they had sex.

                I hate to say Im probably in this camp too. And if you arent taking Bauer, you arent taking Chapman, Ozuna, et al? I'd rather just win my league.

                  Yeah sadly true.

                  The way you win fantasy baseball is through finding discounts.

                  If you remember, a couple years ago the RJ team drafting NFBC wanted to take Bauer in the 1st round. I was the main opposition because he was so volatile (both on and off the field). We took him anyway.

                  Early rounds you need stability, late rounds volatility, like Bauer, is a positive.

                    I was not there so I do not know what happened…but I’m just going to leave these here:

                    The woman, named only as Ms Hill, released the snap through her attorney Bryan Freedman on Thursday. Bauer insists their sex was entirely consensual, and claims he has proof.


                    The nurse, Kelly Valencia, described the bruising on the woman's genitals as "red and purple." She said on Tuesday that "it was frankly alarming."

                    However, I will also share this one too:
