If baseball followers are feeling slightly extra exuberant, or look within the mirror and suppose they’re having a superb day, or possibly they only had the motivation so as to add only one extra rep or set their exercise this morning, there is a purpose. for it. We, as a society, have achieved You ran Trevor Bauer out of our country!
So long as it isn’t a present deportation (and solely deportation by way of catapult to a rubbish ship would have appeared acceptable) It appears Bauer could not discover any employment alternatives on these shores. Or at the least none of them like him, so he’ll check in Japan with the Yokohama DeNA BayStars of the Japanese Central League. He’ll earn 4 million yen, roughly $3 million USD, based mostly on the present trade fee, which is clearly rather a lot, however he ought to hold it just about submerged in stay toads and larvae to eat.
Bauer’s ideas on Japanese tradition needs to be an actual deal with, as we all know there’s by no means a thought you possibly can hold to your self. It is also possible that he’ll put gonzo numbers on there, which might be his hope. Ideally for Bauer, he’ll put out such flashy stats that, subsequent winter, some MLB crew shall be satisfied to provide him a deal by way of some rationalization involving the passage of time, his skills, any pretend contrition he can cobble collectively (possibly), and a few blather. ridiculous about his dedication in going overseas for a yr.
It is actually stunning that no MLB crew has performed it this offseason, and it is a measure of how poisonous Bauer has change into. That is nonetheless an All-Star-level pitcher who principally might have been as free as attainable, with what the Dodgers are compelled to pay him and the pure nuclear waste of a persona and behavioral traits that Bauer comes with. It nearly actually wasn’t the misconduct Bauer was charged with (he was by no means charged and denies any misconduct) that soured MLB groups on him, as a result of there are Many players suspended for domestic violence complaints on the main league rosters lately. However evidently the truth that so lots of Bauer’s outdated Teammates have come to insult him, simply as this unusual assertion issued that seems to be deceptive at greatest, have been sufficient to persuade 30 MLB groups that it actually wasn’t well worth the problem.
It isn’t the California Penal League, and Japanese baseball and its followers actually don’t deserve what’s going to be inflicted on them. However there are occasions whenever you simply need to say, “It isn’t my circus, it isn’t my monkeys.” We will lastly do this with Bauer. I am unable to wait to search out out Who do you determine to sue? over there.
