Bad news for Bauer. Probably to the surprise of nobody, an Ohio woman sought a protective order against Trevor Bauer for choking and punching her during sex while he was playing for Cincinnati. (Well presumably not while he was actually playing a game. But you know what I mean.) He subsequently threatened to kill the woman in text message exchanges. Am I detecting a pattern here? The police apparently blamed the victim in that incident. I don’really see how underage drinking makes her a legitimate target to get beaten up. In the back of my mind I can’t help wondering how far this will go before Rachel Luba cuts ties with Bauer.
The Yankees placed Clint Frazier on the 60 day injured list on Monday, thereby nullifying any likelihood the Angels would face him in the makeup game.
Here’s how the make up game went.
Meanwhile they activated Gerrit Cole and returned right hander Brooks Kriske to their triple A affiliate in a corresponding move.
Aaron Boone won’t say anything about the condition of Luis Severino. If it was Joe Maddon he would probably say it is just a blister (on his shoulder).
The Padres signed Jake Arrieta, apparently out of desperation.
The Rays selected former Angels farm hand Chris Ellis to the big league club and moved DJ Johnson from the ten day injured list to the 60 day injured list to make room.
The Rays also signed David Robertson who just got finished pitching for Team USA in the Olympics. He’s going to the Rays Triple A affiliate for a while.
Jacob deGrom has suffered a further setback with his elbow injury. Maybe that Cy Young Award is slipping away from him.
I wonder if Ka’ai Tom will clear waivers this time.

If you have TMobile as your provider, you can get 6 months of the Athletic for free with TMobile Tuesdays
Free MLBTV is one of the few reasons we stay with TMobile.
I better check that out since I have T-Mobile
I have it and love it. Is there a way to mirror the broadcast feed onto the family room TV? I don’t see Airplay availability on my I-phone.
This week I got the promo. I already have the Athletic and I wish they would extend by 6-months but seems to be a new subscriber option promo only.
but, can he pitch?
What a jackass. They needed the Dodgers ball girl to tackle that idiot with extreme force.
Old pal Michael Hermasillo is getting another shot at the bigs.
So basically no baseball new hardly anywhere…. just a bunch of creepy dudes creepin…
That is where you go when you have unwritten rules
Mize is the Detroit pitcher I worry about. Come on, Bundy! Be good.
Be Goode be Goode be Goode Buuuuundy
Been following the Felipe Vasquez story since it broke. Dude is convicted of 15 counts of being a child predator, yet only got 2-4 years behind bars at sentencing today. He’s been locked up for 23 months during this process, so do the math. He’ll be out again in no time.
Disgraceful. Our kids deserve better.
Possibly back in jail in Florida if they file charges too.
Florida is the penis of the US so don’t be surprised if the powers that be there decides to do the wrong thing and opt not to file charges. Hopefully I’m wrong and charges will be filed in Florida.
They actually still fry ’em in Florida so not sure I would escape there for a lighter sentence. Theres a lot of places including our very own golden state that are much more lenient about committing any crime.
California is working quick to be the butt hole of the country.
You can never take that from New Orleans.
They are Texas toilet, so close
Hopefully. Even better would be if PA “accidentally” puts him and every other child predator in general population.
Ha! I was thinking that if the States of their respective offenses matched they could just throw Vasquez and Bauer into the same steel cage together and see who comes back out of Thunderdome.
So basically he hates Goose
Too much video games
This is great.
Is that a Halo Honk?
[runs for cover]
How many photographers today would go on the field 10 yards behind the batters box?
That’s cool. The end of Ruth’s career. Not many cameras in the stands back then.
I guess it’s fair to ask now, were those cuts really from a drone mishap?
Are 24 and 25 year-olds really still prospects? They seem to be more of a project at this point…..
The loss of minor league baseball last year has cost guys an entire year. In the case of Davis Daniel, he’d already lost one year due to injury.
Their time to sink or swim is near, but this year 24 isn’t as bad as it was in the past.
Under the rules of TrAdition!, hell 30 year olds can still be prospects.
Arol Vera is really smooth at short and will relieve the burning pain of not signing a top shortstop.
He’s a natural
I see what you did there.
OT: Bois is back
Safe to say Suarez is a definite starter for us next year……settled science.
We will likely see Miggy hit HR 500 this series. Over the years I’ve gotten to really enjoy the guy; his demeanor, the way he interacts with fans, especially kids. Not his fault he was handed an MVP.
With Bundy on the hill tonight, we’ll likely see history.
In other Dodgers news, Cole Hamels is out for the year. That signing went as though we’d signed him.
I’ve long been wondering about other allegations against Bauer. Violence tends to escalate so I wasn’t going to really be surprised either way. At some point it simply took more violence for him to feel satisfied. If that point really was back in 2017, there will be more victims I’d imagine.
Cole Hamels and Dylan Bundy on their way to the Bay Area next season.
Go camp outside Farhan and Billy’s doorsteps and hope they adopt you guys like two stray kitty cats..

To Trevor Bauer, this Boomer can only say… OKAY, MILENNIAL…
Not much Angels news in the Angels news.
There’s not a ton of actual Angels news right now. It takes some 2-3 days of looking around for me to fill out the weekend links page.
Ohtani is a baseball god, the rest of the team has no name recognition. That’s the Angels news.
lol, you said it. pickings are pretty slim on my Athletic feed for the Angels.
And Ohtani didn’t really do much yesterday.
It’s almost as bad as last year when I was posting recipes and coloring pages. About the only movement on that front is that they took down Buttrey’s Buttery Steak Topping.
That’s an outrage!😀
[stares at box of 64]
If Ohtani can hit a couple more jacks, some nimrod is bound to write another of those articles about where Ohtani is going to go when he is a free agent.
We’re mediocre and we’re boring. Nice!
You’d rather have the Bauer drama?
Bauer sucks. I could see if you were skeptical based on the first San Diego/Pasadena girl who apparently asked for some physical encounters before he beat her but to have 2 women now that he’s into choking and punching? While texting them bizarrely graphic threats or to share revenge porn with their family?
Captain Obvious says Bauer has some issues with women. Maybe mom was too tough on his weak ass.
Or not tough enough. Coddled and told he was special his whole life…
Not surprised Bauer left a trail of abusing women. The more the investigators dig, the more that will likely come out.
deGrom will need TJS – it’s no longer a question of “if”, it’s “when”.
Are you sure we didn’t sign deGrom?
Not yet. We just needed to see if was willing to go under the knife. He is brave. He will fair well. Soon he will be in a diving dumpster, then he will be ours for 5/35per
No because the Giants or A’s will get him first and actually fix him. 😫 😭
BTW I’m glad we didn’t give up on Barria last year and watch him in green & gold or orange & black and doing well with 8 or 9 wins…….
Why so serious
It’s my understanding from a very reliable source that we would never trade for or sign deGrom because the ligament was not torn enough.
My sources tell me our Dr’s wouldn’t touch him unless he went through the usual hand wringing 4 month misdiagnoses protocols…..never want to cut on someone too soon. You wait and see if it fixes itself first..then rub a very, very expensive magic balm on it and wait 2 or 3 weeks. Then after 2 or 3 months, you secretly call the Doyer Dr for a 2nd opinion.
your reliable source is stupid……….
Very, very expensive magic balm = dirt, and if he is a pitcher, Delaware river mud. When he no longer shines, he’s fixed.
So we’ve replaced the “magic pixie dust” (aka glitter) with dirt? I must have missed that continuing education course…..
I love Guillermo!
Old baseball trAdition
Torn ACL? I thought it was only heat prostration.
Are we discussing Bundy’s spewfest on the mound?
I heard he refused Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. That’s a No-No here in Angels land.
Dr. Platelet’s Rich Plasma Treatment. Recommended by Dr. Nick!
