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?

Bauer is kind of a dick, but I'm glad he's at least using it for a good cause here.

miracles DO happen

for once i actually agree with him.

almost - the commissioner is not actually trying to RUIN baseball. he and the wall street wolves that now run baseball are trying to make even MORE profits for the owners because they aren't satisfied with the umpty millions they already get.

They see it as an orange to be juiced, not an orange tree to be carefully tended.

Trevor Bauer fun fact: He has had exactly one season with an ERA below 4.00 (2018).

He's dangerously close to not being good enough to get away with being as much of a dick (or gadfly, if you're being generous) as he is.
