Trevor Bauer rips MLB for latest postponed game: 'Figure it the f*** out'

  Trevor Bauer rips MLB for latest postponed game: 'Figure it the f*** out' The Cincinnati Reds were scheduled to take on the Detroit Tigers on Saturday evening, but with rain in the forecast, they moved the game to earlier in the afternoon to try and get it in. Then, just minutes before the first pitch, the game was delayed due to rain, and t hen later postponed. © Provided by For The Win Players weren’t happy, as they went through full warmups — with pitchers getting their arms loose — before the rain started at 1 p.m., and the tarp rolled out just ten minutes before the scheduled 1:10 first pitch. Rain came down violently for the next hour, and at 2:05 p.m. the game was postponed.

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer — known as one of the game 's more outspoken figures — called the proposal “laughable” on Wednesday. Bauer and his agent, Rachel Luba, produced a video of more than an hour in which they broke down the reported details of MLB ’ s proposal.

Reds right-hander Trevor Bauer on Saturday echoed what MLB players and managers have been saying in recent days about the unintended consequences of late-game postponements in response to positive COVID-19 tests and bad weather conditions.

Pitchers in particular are routine-oriented, throwing for a specific amount of time on off days and before starts in order to maintain peak physical condition. Bauer is known to take his preparation techniques to the extreme as he constantly pushes to prove those who shunned him growing up wrong while staying healthy.

Trevor Bauer voiced his displeasure toward MLB commissioner Rob Manfred regarding the reported changes to the league' s postseason with a scathing tweet "As the commissioner, figure it out man how are we supposed to get them interested in the game when they can’t even see the damn game ?"

Cleveland Indians Ace, Trevor Bauer , took to twitter to complain about the MLB looking the other way when it comes to pitchers doctoring the baseball.

So, warming up before a scheduled start only to be told the game would be moved to another date is frustrating. It's been happening somewhat regularly this week as the coronavirus seeps into MLB clubhouses around the league.

The Reds' game against the Tigers on Saturday, which Bauer was slated to start, was postponed due to inclement weather rather than COVID-19 but irked Bauer nonetheless.

"Postpone the game before starters start throwing or play through it," Bauer wrote on Twitter. "You can't postpone a game eight minutes before it's supposed to start. Just because it's a shortened season doesn't mean you can change all the rules all of a sudden. Figure it the f— out."

Bauer was excellent in his first start of the season, striking out 11 in 6 1/3 innings. While the Reds are 2-5 after entering the season with high expectations, the pitching trio of Bauer, Sonny Gray and Luis Castillo should keep them competitive as long as the campaign has the green light.

Whether MLB will actually make it through 60 games is another question. There has been speculation about a shutdown as COVID-19 cases rise, and the Cardinals on Saturday disclosed four members of their organization had tested positive.
