The Cincinnati Reds pitcher tweeted on Monday night that the proposal was “absurd” for numerous reasons. Bauer directed his ire at Rob Manfred, calling the commissioner a “joke.”

The proposal would include expanding the playoff field to seven teams in each league; giving the top team in each league a bye into the divisional round; having a TV show where teams pick their opponents; and a 3-game series in the first round, where the higher-seeded team hosts all three games.

The good news is MLB is thinking of ways to modify its current system, which needs serious improvement. The problem is the proposal includes some bad ideas, such as a 3-game series (which is too short) where only one team hosts all three (which is unfair).

Bauer needs to share his extended thoughts on the subject, and his suggestion for how to be better. Bauer probably already has issues with Manfred over the way the Astros situation was handled, considering Bauer has long taken issue with Houston’s methods.

Reds’ Trevor Bauer believes 70% of pitchers are cheating .
Illegal sign-stealing has continued to arrest the attention of MLB, its players and the fans. But Trevor Bauer thinks this old-school cheating tactic has already taken over the league. Most rival hurlers are doctoring baseballs with pine tar, according to the Reds pitcher, who believes about 70% of the league’s pitchers are still doing this. “It needs to be talked about more because it affects every single pitch,” Bauer said on a pre-taped episode of HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.” He claimed, at least for pitchers, doctoring baseballs creates “a bigger advantage than steroids ever were.
