Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer took a direct shot at MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Saturday over the league’s menace to chop ties with minor league baseball associates.
Manfred had threatened to drop any potential settlement with minor league baseball and accused the group of getting a “take it or depart it” stance on the negotiating desk.

Bauer wasn’t having any of it and accused Manfred of “attempting to break baseball in any respect ranges,” in a collection of tweets.
He wrote: “At the least Rob Manfred is attempting to break baseball in any respect ranges and is not discriminating. One thing to be mentioned for consistency, I assume.”

He then adopted up with: “Hey baseball followers, let’s assume for a short second that Rob’s intention IS to make the sport extra standard (not only a cash seize)…what are some issues he may do that might truly make the sport extra fascinating and enjoyable for you as a fan? How do you wish to see the sport evolve?”
MLB had no fast touch upon Bauer’s remarks.

Bauer has been recognized for quirks as a lot as his expertise. He was fined in the course of the 2019 season for throwing a ball from behind the mound over the center-field wall in Kansas Metropolis whereas he was with the Cleveland Indians. The group traded him to the Reds three days later.
