Trevor Bauer updates

These are his quotes from the article:

I want to win. I want to be with a team that has a winning culture. I want to be there in the playoffs. I want a chance at a World Series. That’s one thing that really drives me. I want a chance to pitch every fourth day instead of every fifth. That really drives me. Going along with that: how’s the medical staff? How’s the technology — the information that’s available on the coaching staff? What’s the culture of the organization like? 
 

Again, I think it comes back to I just want a chance to win every year. I want to be in a situation where I feel valued and I have the chance to conduct my career the way I want to conduct it. So, pitch every fourth day, and stuff like that. I want to challenge myself and have a chance to do those things. So if there’s a situation where it presents itself where it is a four-year or five-year deal, and I feel confident that’s going to be a situation that’s good for me, I would consider it. I do think that in order to do the things that I want to do, I think I’m going to have to take on a little more risk than normal in those long-term contracts. …I’m not afraid of the one-year deals. I’m not afraid of the longer deals. It’s just going to be a case-by-case basis, and we’ll see what the situations look like.


That all seems.....reasonable.

Not really. He is basically saying that he wants to listen to no one and wants no to tell him what to do. He is going to pitch every 4th day regardless of what it does the the rest of the rotation and his teammates.  

I applaud his desire to get better and improve but worry about a guy who basically tells you he really doesnt care about what his plan does to anyone else.

Check out the thread Trevor Bauer Breaks Down Giolito's No-No currently on p7 of SoxTalk threads and the video is there.  I found it fascinating.

Thanks!

I think people put WAY too much faith into things having to happen 100% for them to be true.  Deals fall apart all of the time in MLB.

I agree, but I’ll admit the way Not Steve Cishek “reported” at the deadline reeks of fraud.

I don't know about fraud, but I think the guy has the credibility of Peggy Kusinski's son at this point...if that high.

Yeah, the nerve of him to have an opinion that you don't agree with...

I definitely want him still. I can see people having issues with the birther comments. If Timmy is cool with Bauer (it appears he is), bring him aboard

I'll follow TA's lead.  I would also love him especially on a 1 year deal....if he goes for a 2nd year "option" even better.

Love how he says its ego centric to say that humans caused climate change.  Meanwhile not seeing how massively egotistical it is for a ball player to sit there and insinuate that scientists who have spent their entire lives studying the climate dont know as much as Trevor Bauer.  Yikes, what a fucking moron.  😂

Dude becomes a moron when he talks outside his wheelhouse, but cancellation isn’t that much of a thing. Most of the time people just whine about things someone said and, unless it’s exceptionally insane, life moves on

Inside his wheelhouse, his knowledge of pitching is off the charts imho.

Every time Bauer opens his mouth, it makes me like Gerrit Cole a little bit more.  Plenty of baseball players are Aubrey Huff/Jake Arrieta-style knuckleheads.  If the Sox sign him, I'll suspend my loathing for the length of the contract, I guess.  Can't make me like him, though.

Aubrey Huff is his own level of crazy.

Pitching every 4 days will really mess up the rest of the rotation.  No one else will want to do that.

And no team will offer him that IMO just for that reason.

are people here sure they want Bauer? #cancelbauer

Damn, was unaware of this side of him. 

I'm fine passing on him. Let's go another route.

You're going to pass on him due to his political opinions but not because he wants to ignore all coaching and disrupt the pitching staff.

I disagree with the second part. I like his outlook on pitching and admire the idea of pitching every 4 days.

This would be good. He could easily transition to the bullpen when kopech is ready.

Yea Tim likes Bauer alot. And Bauer was one of the first who defended Tim during the whole "bat flip" controversy. He likes fun in baseball.

I don't feel the need to repeat my same argument and annoy everyone, so I'll leave this as the last time. 

Since Bauer was in college he has been a notorious dick head/unlikable me-first guy. I've also read, but never heard, that he was a dick head in high school too.

I can tolerate a lot of things, but if Tito can't tolerate you then I likely couldn't tolerate you either. I don't for one second doubt his work ethic - Bauer is an incredibly self centered person and he wants to be the smartest and best so he puts in the work. 

It's great that Bauer said all those things... guess what, he was just on a team with a winning culture who was in the playoffs and he cut his hand playing with a drone costing them a World Series possibly, and then the within the next two years he pissed off Tito enough that they were done with him. 

Trevor Bauer cares about one person, Trevor Bauer.

He's technically correct.  Climate change has many contributing factors.  He's not denying that man has contributed to it, he is expressing skepticism that we could ever control it.  

Short of a mass extinction event, he's largely correct.
