Trevor Bauer Puts Out An Emotional Apology On Twitter To Mets Fans

Reigning National League Cy Young award winner Trevor Bauer has always done things a little differently. As he’s gotten more successful, he’s been able to take even more liberties and do even more within the realm of social media.

The pitcher announced on Friday that he is heading out west, inking a three-year, $102 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers that could see him opt-out after either of the first two seasons.

While signing with the Dodgers wasn’t a shock, what was is the fact that Bauer apparently had a deal with the New York Mets already on the table.

The 30-year-old right-hander put out a video posted to his YouTube that made his move to the Dodgers official.

The video concluded by stating, “This season is about adding to our legacy, and I can’t wait, Dodger fans.”

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the contract Bauer didn’t sign with the Mets had a higher overall value than the one with the Dodgers, but the pitcher decided heading out west was a better decision for him.

Bauer put out a series of tweets Sunday evening that addressed Mets fans. He told them he was “sorry” for a merchandise glitch on his website that made it appear he was heading to the Big Apple.

Here’s the Twitter thread put out on Bauer’s official Twitter account.

Last season, Bauer won the Cy Young award after he went 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA in Cincinnati. It was the first Cy Young for the Reds ever. He was also the only pitcher in baseball last year with a pair of shutouts.
