Trevor Bauer was dealt from the Indians to the Reds in a trade deadline deal following him chucking a baseball over the centerfield fence in his final start with the Tribe.
The hardthrowing “Bauer Outage” has a reputation as a prickly jerk, but dropped one of the most heartfelt tribute videos you’ll ever see, thanking the city of Cleveland and remembering his best memories with the franchise. Cutting his finger with a drone helicopter blade before a playoff start against the Blue Jays isn’t among them.
This is how you leave a franchise. Even it’s just a PR move, it’s a good one. Keep the Kleenex box handy. Damn emotional piano music.
Thank you, Cleveland. pic.twitter.com/OJ4mxCKbq4
