Trevor Bauer blows out MLB’s ‘amateur’ approach to procrastinating games: ‘Figure it out’

Reds right-handed Trevor Bauer repeated on Saturday what MLB players and managers have said in recent days about the unintended consequences of late game postponement in response to positive COVID-19 testing and bad weather.

Pitchers in particular are routine-oriented and throw a certain amount of time on days off and before starting to maintain physical top condition. Van Bauer is known to push his preparation techniques to the limit while constantly striving for them prove those who shunned him when they grew up wrong while you stay healthy.

So warming up for a scheduled start to hear the game be moved to another date is frustrating. It happens somewhat regularly this week as the coronavirus invades MLB clubhouses around the league.

The Reds’ game against the Tigers on Saturday, which Bauer was about to start, was postponed due to bad weather instead of COVID-19, but still irritated Bauer.

“Postpone the game before starters start throwing or playing”, Bauer wrote on Twitter. “You can’t postpone a game for eight minutes before it should start. Just because it’s a shortened season doesn’t mean you can suddenly change all the rules. Just think about it. “

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 the season with high hopes, 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 actually achieves 60 games is another question. There has been speculation about a closure as COVID-19 cases increase, and the Cardinals revealed on Saturday that four members of their organization had tested positive.
