Reds ace Trevor Bauer dominated the Chicago Cubs Wednesday night as he went 7 2/3 innings with 10 punch outs. According to Bauer, the Cubs frequently trash talk him while on the mound, but if you thought him embarrassing Chicago on the field would end the chatter, think again.

Considered to be one of the game’s best pitchers, makes sense that he can deliver a “Yo momma” one-liner as fast as they come. Larry Bird could talk about anything he pleased for 48 minutes on the hardwood for this very reason.
Bauer isn’t particularly liked by opposing fan bases (and obviously some Cubs players), but that hasn’t stopped him. He’s been at the forefront of marketing baseball to catch the sport up with surging ratings and fan interest in opposing leagues. Trevor has a past of praising players like Fernando Tatis Jr. pimping 3-0 pitches for homers, while old school fans complained.
Even Cubs current ace Yu Darvish gave Bauer his approval after the exchange Wednesday.

Chicago might want to get on the same page with their chirping. We have an entire dug out of dudes striking out left and right waving Bauer off the mound, then we have your best pitcher throwing him compliments.
If you look like this, not a word should come out your mouth all night:

Any pitcher painting the corners like Pablo Picasso for more than half a game shouldn’t be spoken to. He owns you. If you don’t like how Trevor Bauer conducts himself on or off the field, beat him. That’s why Bauer was at the forefront of allowing hitters to showboat their homers.
A fan of baseball that wants to see the sport grow. He knows pitching well enough to take your girlfriend out to dinner is a great way to get baseball intertwined with social media. Might piss the opponent off, but who gives a damn.
He sure doesn’t. Bravo Mr. Bauer and follow his Youtube channel if you didn’t peep his shirt!
