Max Fried has been rocked in his first two starts, allowing 15 hits and seven earned runs through 11 innings, and going to Dodger Stadium isn’t the spot where you turn things around. The Los Angeles Dodgers are in regular season form and Walker Buehler is great at home, which includes a 2.05 ERA and .192 allowed batting average last season. Give me the Dodgers and the somewhat reasonable price.
