Guess we have to talk about Trevor Bauer now (ughhhh)



Guess we have to talk about Trevor Bauer now (ughhhh)

This offseason has been fairly quiet for the Dodgers. One title we’ve averted writing approximately is Trevor Bauer. Effectively

Fucking sigh.

The Dodgers and the Mets are the 2 finalists for Bauer’s. The Dodgers are, reportedly, eager about a 1- or 2-year deal with a possible record-setting AAV ($36-plus million), whereas the Mets are within the 3-4-year vary at $30 million a season. There’s no such factor as a nasty 1-year deal, besides on this case.

On the sphere, he’s high-quality. He has two actually good seasons — together with a 2020 Nationwide League Cy Younger Award — combined in with a pair respectable seasons and a pair borderline mediocre seasons.

Off the sphere, he’s an issue. He has a protracted historical past of harassing girls, which is probably the most troubling side. He’s additionally a local weather change denier, a MAGA chud and used the an all too widespread protection in terms of the Cleveland baseball group’s mascot/staff title. He’s additionally kinda dumb (as a result of Twitter isn’t a information group).

Daniel mentioned it fairly effectively.

I’d prefer to imagine the Dodgers and Andrew Friedman wouldn’t be eager about a participant like this, irrespective of how good his numbers look and the way good the potential deal is likely to be, however he does have a historical past — although not latest — of buying gamers with questionable off-the-field histories — Chad GaudinJosh LuekeJosh Sale, to call a number of. Whereas Bauer hasn’t ever dedicated home violence or sexual assault, his continued harassment of girls on-line is reprehensible.

The Dodgers received the World Collection in 2020. In the event that they signal Bauer, their probabilities of successful once more in all probability enhance. However they’re adequate to repeat with out Bauer. For the headache and heartache he would trigger followers who share my (our) line of pondering, it doesn’t appear value it. I do know I mentioned I need the Dodgers to benefit from the free agent/commerce market this winter, however I don’t need this.

I’m not telling you easy methods to fan, I’m simply supplying you with my opinion on the state of affairs. And if this occurs, this is able to suck.
