Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer on his online behavior: ‘I’m doing my best to be better’

LOS ANGELES — A Feb. 2019 profile of Trevor Bauer in Sports Illustrated included this self-assessment by the right-hander who has made iconoclasm his brand. “I’m good at two things in this world,” Bauer is quoted as telling a former teammate. “Throwing baseballs and pissing people off.” The Dodgers have signed Bauer – for $102 million over three years – to exhibit the first talent. It remains to be seen how much of the second they will have to stomach along the way. Bauer’s acknowledged ability...

Alexander: Trevor Bauer, Dodger, isn’t fully celebrated

Trevor Bauer was on his best behavior Thursday afternoon. You would be, too, with a three-year, $102 million contract in hand. But even within an all-smiles, happy-to-be-here presentation at Dodger Stadium on Thursday afternoon after Bauer’s agreement with the defending champs became official, there was a bit of an edge. Bauer’s reputation has preceded him, and his social media presence – the history of which has included two documented incidents of harassment by Bauer’s followers on Twitter, bo...

For Baseball Hall of Fame vote, character concerns go beyond PEDs

The ballot would arrive around the end of November, and it would keep him occupied for much of December. He’d write down his research on players in a notebook and feel butterflies when putting his ballot in the mail. Then it was time for his most recent vote, and the whole process felt quite different. “That ballot sat out unopened until after Christmas because I kne...
