Trevor Bauer raps about Cleveland Indians winning pennant

I’m more of a Tony Conigliaro poetry man myself.

After being traded to the Indians, Bauer produced a rap song that seemed to address his critics (like Miguel Montero), though he denied that was the case. This time around, he created a song about his team, and it was full of positive sentiment.

The folks at Indians fan site Wahoos on First reached out to Bauer over Twitter and asked him to produce the opening song for their podcast. Bauer came through for them with a solid song.

As our friends at Waiting for Next Year point out, Bauer mentions most of his teammates in the song and gives a positive rhyme about each of them (e.g. “CP in the ninth, you know we gonna close out” for Chris Perez and “smoking pitchers like cigars” for Nick Swisher).

The hook of the song is, “From the gutter to the grail, we rise up to win it/Wahoos on first with our eyes on the pennant.”

It’s a short song and pretty cool that Bauer took the time to create it for a fan podcast. I can’t imagine the Indians would have any problem with it.

People will take shots, no doubt, but c'mon: this is goofy fun. Good for Bauer, and good luck Cleveland fans.

People will take shots

Thank you, I will!

When that guy in the other thread talked about hip-hop causing fans to abandon MLB, was he referring to this?

But in all seriousness this does make me like Bauer even more. Now if he could just walk 5 fewer batters per 9 innings he'd be my favourite pitcher in the league!

“smoking pitchers like cigars” for Nick Swisher


I think Swisher smokes something stronger than cigars.

Another story notes that Carlos Santana is described by Bauer as "at the dish, whipping the hose out”. Option J!
