Uncertainly still surrounds the 2020 MLB season, but the business of baseball will inevitably march on no matter what.
Major League Baseball won’t be playing for quite a while after the start of its season was postponed, but one player is trying to set something up in the meantime.
No MLB player has been more outspoken about the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal than Trevor Bauer, and the Cincinnati Reds pitcher had his own way of bringing it up again on Monday.
Trevor Bauer had been publicly suspicious of the Houston Astros for years prior to MLB’s investigation into the team’s sign-stealing operation.
Trevor Bauer was traded by a team in the middle of a pennant race and landed with an organization that won’t be playing in October. Apparently, he’s happy with that all the same.
If the Cincinnati Reds are hoping to get newly-acquired pitcher Trevor Bauer to commit to the organization long-term, it sounds like they’re going to be disappointed.
Trevor Bauer was in no rush to leave Cleveland after being traded by the Indians to the Cincinnati Reds as part of a three-team deal on Tuesday night.
Information spreads so quickly in the social media era that players often find out they were traded or released before their teams have a chance to speak with them, which usually is not a good thing.
