Trevor Bauer, 4.1 IP, 9 hits, 7 earned runs, 4 walks, one ball chucked 300 feet over the center field fence. Have a day! Bauer has always been a bit of a loose cannon and here’s just another example. After giving up a double in an atrocious start and Tito Francona walking to the mound to give him the hook, Bauer launches the baseball over the centerfield wall and Francona promptly asks him “what the fuck is wrong with you?”
Obviously he threw the ball because he was pissed at himself and not at Francona for pulling him so sure he looks like a baby but at least he’s not showing up his manager? I don’t know. I don’t know if this helps or hurts his trade value, but it’s certainly something you don’t see every day!
Oh and Kansas City announcer who says “thank God he threw it in the boards so he didn’t hit a fan,” be softer, you can’t. Like guys are ripping the ball 100+ mph into the stands and you’re worried that a fan might get hit by a ball traveling 300 feet from a throw? Relax.
BREAKING: I was literally just about to hit publish and then saw that the Mets have traded for Marcus Stroman. I have no idea what the Mets are doing, but it means Stroman isn’t going to the Yankees which is okay with me! Does this mean Noah is gone? Does this mean they’re all in? They’ve been playing good baseball lately so who the hell knows!
