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.

sexual predators and rapists tend to not be well liked

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.
