What I meant about the Schilling comparison is how he is generally disliked, and maybe I underestimated but Bauer sounds to be even more disliked than Schilling.

Plenty of people still disliked Bauer before these allegations were made (and again, he admits he did all this stuff, just says it was consensual). I've always seen him as an attention seeking prima donna, he's posted sexist stuff to Twitter for years, and he's constantly accusing other players on Twitter of cheating - though some of those allegations turned out to be true.

He also cheats though, and was part of the sticky stuff brigade. Yea, somehow I missed how much he is disliked.

This incident is very much on brand for Bauer.

If the DA indicts him it’s an easy decision to suspend him rest of the season.  If no indictment wonder what happens. Is he on a one year contract?

One year contract. One year player option.

Thanks. I am sure their is a way for the Dodgers to void the player option with an indictment. His terrible behavior without an indictment?

I’d assume he exercises the option. I doubt many owners would want the headache of signing him right now

Nice summary of the situation and what might happen.

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/32119416/will-trevor-bauer-ever-pitch-again-next-los-angeles-dodgers-mlb


The end of the article basically tells the whole story. It's unlikely Bauer ever pitches again. It could happen, but it's unlikely.

Interesting. Wild think they would need to let him play this year.

They can still impose disciplinary measures.

I cant imagine that he would recieve a longer suspension for 80 games. If he did, the MLBPA would file grievance pretty quick.

Bigger question is do the Dodgers keep him. They have no pitching beyond Buehler and Urias. They actually need him if they want to compete.

I thought he had a player option so that had to keep him if eligible to play?

I'm guessing mlb and the Dodger both were hoping he'd be charged.   This makes it a lot more complicated.

Having Bauer pitch this year should help heal any wounds from missed games.   :hysterical:

I take it he doesn't mind discipline when he dishes it out, but here he'd need to take it.

It will be time served. The MLBPA would immediately file a grievance for a suspension longer than 80 games, particularly without a criminal charge. Bauer will have to pay some money, but he will be available to play for the 2022 Opening Day (whenever that is).

Now we find out how committed the Dodgers are to not having him. Their rotation is crap right now. Theres garbage left in free agency to backfill it. May is the only MLB ready prospect and he wont join the team until mid-season. Dodgers need him. Badly.

If the Dodgers cut him, the bigger thing to me will be whether or not there's a team that would want to take on that PR right now. It might be a couple years before he finds a team willing to sign him.

Angels will absolutely pounce on him.

Bauer suspended 324 games by MLB.
