Trevor Bauer releases a statement

Gerrit Cole is the exact same person as Trevor Bauer, just without the courage and backbone to be himself publicly. 

I dunno about the same person bit, who really knows.

And what you see as courage… I think someone like Bauer takes these positive traits but takes it to a more negative version. Arrogance instead of confidence. Courageous but with a self-serving goal and no sense of empathy for others.

Maybe one day Bauer will reflect on his a career and think to himself, “huh, perhaps if I wasn’t always such an insufferable fucking jackoff douchebag, I would have gotten everything I could out of my baseball career and perhaps I’d be memorable for something other than strangling women. Perhaps if I could have figured out that I should just shut the fuck up sometimes and not be a perpetual attention-craving, petulant titty-baby, things could have turned out better.”

(Note: He won’t ever have the self-awareness for that type of reflection, he’ll always tell himself that it’s all everyone else’s fault.)

He's going to make more money for doing nothing than you will in your entire life. Take the L. He's not defined by this and it wasn't really anything wild he was just into a weird kink that he had too much exposure on.

What a truly terrible take this is. SMH

He has certainly already made more money for doing nothing the last year and a half than I will in my lifetime; I’m not sure what that has to do with anything, or “taking the L” (whatever the fuck that means). It doesn’t change the fact that he’s ruined his MLB career because his “weird kink” involves beating the shit out of women.

None of that mattered much.  Just the choking.

Some people like their balls stepped on too. He's not outwardly beating women and he's not beating people who aren't asking him to beat them. Just because you "don't get it" doesn't mean he's a malicious abusive and bad person. He hasn't denied shit and has been super open about the whole thing throughout the entire process.

worst use of “take the L” in the history of the phrase.

Look, I’m not going to pretend that I’m objective when it comes to this guy - he has pretty much every attribute I abhor in people: arrogant, zero humility, victim complex, loudmouth, attention seeking, childish, self-congratulatory, etc. We all know people like this, and they’re almost always insecure, full of shit and generally a drag to about around.

But he has been accused specifically of being an abusive person, by multiple people. He has denied that he did anything that was extra-consensual in all cases. Maybe he really did nothing wrong, maybe he did - no idea. I tend to think he probably crossed some line, but maybe that’s because I think he sucks in general and it seems on brand.

Some team will pick him up and he will be pretty good but not great.

I thought the same but have read numerous quotes suggesting he’s really untouchable.  We’ll see.  The Dodgers thought long and hard about it, as a frontline starter is at the top of the needs list right now.

I don’t know man- if he was anonymous as opposed to a prick outside of the choking I feel like there would be more people interested perhaps in facilitating a second chance.

I still don't know much about him, and all the hate he generates. So I ran across this piece from a few years ago. He's a different kind of dude.

He's a dude who really doesn't have any athleticism at all, who made himself into a MLB pitcher by studying the physics of pitching.  A lot of what he learned from studying went completely against the conventional wisdom of pitching, which of course really bothered just about everyone else in the game.  The fact that he has basically zero social skills didn't help.

Anyone throwing mid to upper 90s is an athlete with at least one elite skill.

One of my little league teammates and longtime school classmate made the majors as a mid reliever. He wasn’t un-athletic but he wasn’t classically athletic either. He was super humble about making the majors. Said throwing a ball 90+ mph is just a random blessing from God and that from his experience there is no rhyme or reason to it. 
he didn’t pitch when we played together and played 2nd and batted 6th or 7th. Wasn’t all star in the league. Wasn’t top 3 or 4 guys on the team. Really really weird.

My own youth baseball career was the reverse -- I was usually the fastest guy on the team, very strong and one of the top three hitters, and so my coaches thought I must be able to pitch too. Not only was I wild AF but my velocity probably topped out at around 75 mph even in HS. No movement on anything. I did go out on a high note -- I struck out the side against Houston's Madison HS, VY's alma mater. Three straight dudes who looked like Urkel fell to my fearsome heat.

Like many athletic traits, to me arm strength is God given
