Dodgers star Trevor Bauer savagely trolls Rob Manfred and MLB

Dodgers, Trevor Bauer

Rob Manfred and Major League Baseball once again find themselves in the forefront of the news cycle for a topic that isn’t going to help grow the game of baseball and its popularity. As a result, Los Angeles Dodgers star pitcher Trevor Bauer decided to go troll mode and chime in with his own thoughts.

The debate of pitchers using “sticky substances” to help with the grip of the baseball has all of a sudden jumped the line for Manfred and MLB as the number one priority to deal with. Almost every player, including pitchers have said this isn’t new, that everyone’s favorite pitcher dating back decades has likely used some sort of substance to help with the grip.

What has brought this to the top of the food chain for discussion is the term “spin rate.” Some believe using spider tack or sunscreen is enhancing pitchers performances. As a result, Manfred has now implemented a rule that any pitcher caught using any sort of sticky substance will be suspended 10 days, with pay. Here’s what Bauer, one of the Dodgers’ aces thinks about that.

The Dodgers flamethrower is not shy on speaking up on issues he’s passionate about and while it rubs some the wrong way, the majority will likely side with Bauer when it comes to this topic.

Others like Tyler Glasnow of the Tampa Bay Rays and Carlos Rodon of the Chicago White Sox have really spoken out as well, along with the Dodgers righty.

Whether or not this works out the way Manfred and MLB hope is yet to be seen. But one thing that is for sure, pitchers across the league aren’t too thrilled with the decision.
