Reds’ Bauer skirts arbitration after sour ’19 hearing vs CLE

CINCINNATI (AP) — Trevor Bauer agreed to a $17.5 million, one-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, bypassing salary arbitration after the All-Star pitcher had a contentious hearing with Cleveland last offseason.

Bauer, acquired from the Indians in July, relished beating Cleveland in arbitration the past two offseasons but complained after last winter’s hearing that Major League Baseball labor relations staff attempted “character assassination” against him.

The right-hander was awarded $13 million over the Indians’ $11 million offer in 2019, a year after winning a raise to $6,525,000 against Cleveland’s $5.3 million offer. Bauer donated his extra winnings in 2018 to charity in what he called “69 days of giving” — an online campaign that leaned on sexual innuendo and a reference to marijuana to raise awareness.

Bauer said MLB labor relations department representatives attempted to use the operation to “demean my character” in the 2019 hearing.

Somehow, this really isn’t much of a surprise…..

Reds’ Bauer barbs MLB commissioner ‘trying to ruin baseball’

Outspoken Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer is barbing Rob Manfred, tweeting the MLB commissioner “is trying to ruin baseball at all levels.”

Bauer sent a series of tweets during the weekend, starting with a jab about Major League Baseball’s threat to cut ties with minor league affiliates.

Bauer followed up with: “At least Rob Manfred is trying to ruin baseball at all levels and isn’t discriminating. Something to be said for consistency, I guess.”

MLB had no immediate comment to Bauer’s remarks.

So, how much of a drag-out brawl can these two have?

Colorado School of Mines Talk – Bauer Outage

Trevor Bauer: ‘I don’t really miss a whole lot about Cleveland’

Reds starter Trevor Bauer has struggled in four starts with the Reds since the Indians dealt him on July 31. Entering Sunday, the right-hander allowed 16 runs (15 earned) on 23 hits and eight walks with 30 strikeouts in 23 innings. That’s an ugly 5.87 ERA.

Nevertheless, Bauer says he’s happier in Cincinnati than he was in Cleveland. Via FOX Sports Ohio, Bauer said, “It was very easy coming in. Everyone did a really good job being accommodating, making it easy for me to make the transition. The information is great here, the coaching staff is great here, and overall I’m a lot happier here than I was. Sometimes you don’t realize how unhappy you are in a situation until you’re out of it. Just kind of the day-to-day life. I miss some of my teammates and stuff, but overall I don’t really miss a whole lot about Cleveland.”

In his final start with the Indians, Bauer struggled immensely against the lowly Royals. As manager Terry Francona came to the mound to remove him from the game, Bauer angrily hurled the baseball from the mound all the way over the fence in center field. Francona was not happy about it. Bauer was fined a couple days later, then the Indians traded him the next day.

But Cleveland leads the nation in drifters, while all Cincinnati leads the nation in is chili that resembles spaghetti sauce!

LEADING OFF: Kluber checked, Ohtani streak, Brewers-Cards

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

CHECK HIM

The Indians will see how ace Corey Kluber is feeling, a day after he was pulled from a Triple-A rehab start because of abdominal tightness.

The two-time AL Cy Young Award winner pitched one scoreless inning for Columbus before exiting as a precaution. The 33-year-old right-hander will be examined in Cleveland.

Archie Bell and the Drells have a lot to answer for….

Frustrated Trevor Bauer Chucks The Ball All The Way Over The Fence Before Being Taken Out

Today is Trevor Bauer’s last start before the trade deadline, and thus very possibly his last start as an Indian. So it’s potentially fraught, and the afternoon did not go well for Bauer, who lasted four and a third against the Royals, giving up seven earned runs on nine hits. And when Bauer spotted Terry Francona coming to take him out, Bauer took out some of his frustrations on the poor, innocent baseball.

“Yes, Trevor, it is precisely because the balls you’ve been throwing have gone over the fence that we pulled you….”
