I don’t know how deep you guys follow MLB feuds, but we’ve had a mini one going on basically all season between Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer and the Houston Astros. You might remember Bauer dropping a little subtle accusation on Twitter that the Astros pitchers doctor their balls to increase their spin rate. That led to basically the entire Astros squad from Verlander to McCullers to Bregman coming after Bauer on Twitter. It reached its peak when Bregman very disrespectfully called Trevor ‘Tyler’.
Finally, last night these two teams played for the first time since this little spat got going and even though Bauer isn’t pitching in the series, he came prepared.
Also, the fans were ready for Bauer as well.
The good news is this feud, or whatever you want to call it, has turned good natured as Bauer tried to donate to Lance McCullers charity as a part of his ’69 Days Of Giving’.
