Bauer to Wear L.A. Blue

Breaking: National League Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer announced that he’s signing a deal with the Dodgers. — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) February 5, 2021
Trevor Bauer gets $102M for 3 years from Dodgers, per source. He has opt outs after each of the first two years; $40M in 2021, $45M in 2022. He’ll be the highest-paid player in MLB history in ’21, then again in ’22. Good job by @AgentRachelLuba & Jon Fetterolf of @zssports_law. — Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) February 5, 2021
Trevor Bauer’s reported salary in 2021 ($40 million, per @Feinsand) is larger than the current 2021 payrolls of the Indians, Pirates and Orioles, according to Spotrac. (h/t @jnorris427). — Kyle Glaser (@KyleAGlaser) February 5, 2021
This is exactly the kind of contract structure the #Dodgers would prefer, especially for an elite pitcher. They’d much rather pay a higher AAV for a shorter number of years. — Mike DiGiovanna (@MikeDiGiovanna) February 5, 2021
I think Trevor Bauer getting paid as much as some teams’ entire payrolls this season says a lot more about those teams than it does Bauer or the Dodgers. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 5, 2021

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
