    It's a shame that his creativity and determination when he was young was not encouraged, rather than mocked. If these allegations are true, you can't help but wonder how those early experiences shaped him...

      The ones who shape our society do not want creative and self-determined people

      I can speak similarly due to very close experience with issues like he grew up with
      when you are fucked with day in, and out, and in again. you become a perfectionist, anything you do has to be perfect the FIRST time you do it or else you become stuck and to get it 100% correct every time from there on.
      he is a product of someone who wanted to be the best and clearly wanted to put the effort into getting there but was ridiculed for any, and everything.
      I don't feel bad for the man, he was fucked with a lot clearly. and I'm glad to see him be able to become the best he could be, because so many people now just want mediocrity and settle for being second best

      @levi wilder
      You're wring on the last sentence. Perfectionism is the sickness of our times. Everyone wants to "change the world" and people whom are average and have no wild idealists are considered "lazy".

      They absolutely did. Abusers carry on their abuse, and yes, bullying is a form of abuse. But for Bauer to truly deserve sympathy, he would need to stop the cycle - and he didn’t.

    Not too familiar with baseball, but this guy strikes me as someone who is intelligent and also "neuro divergent". It explains his deep obsession with specific subjects, and his struggles socializing with others. His training methods are probably rooted in research, considering he received an engineering education. People like him are just more willing to push out old ideas.

    • The Makers Toolbox
      The Makers Toolbox 4 months ago +50

      Yeah. The shoulder tube story and the story about someone touching his back scream to me neuro divergent. Now the problem is it seems he never got help for it and he acts like an asshole. Just because your neuro divergent doesn't mean you can't be a dick.
      And people like him may be quicker to push out old ideas but they are much slower to push out their ideas even if they are bad. The 400 ft throw in the outfield is a perfect example. Throwing that far consistently will get him injured.

    • ggvgopackgo23
      ggvgopackgo23 4 months ago +2

      So true 👍🏼. I feel he definitely needs to work on his social skills, but I think he is almost genius level, so that social development never really happened. I have been interested in His development and now new start in Japan. It's hard to like him sometimes but I fall rooting for this guy, especially when the whole legal situation turned out to be more smoke than fire.. imo Maybe there is more 🤔. Anyway, I just thought you made an excellent hypothesis and hit the numbers, lol.
      Oh, plus everyone enjoys a good comeback story, haha 😄 ✌🏽

    • Eric Agan

      I think your right about his training based of his Clip-Share channel. I think he has put alot of research into his training they way he treats his body like a machine and keeps everything in check

    Slight correction: he didn't want the MLB to "crack down" on cheating, he just wanted them to be consistent in enforcing their rules. He initially didn't want to cheat because he felt he'd be unfairly targeted and punished for it, while other pitchers remained unpunished. He eventually realized the only way to get the MLB to notice was to take over the league by cheating himself, which is what he did with the Reds. He was quoted, I can't find it at the moment, but basically he said he either wanted the league to enforce the ban or overturn it. He didn't like that it was "illegal" on paper but not being enforced

    • Jim Draven
      Jim Draven 12 days ago

      @coolj9496 I know the quote you're mentioning, & yeah, I believe MLB has been so lax in enforcing this it's likely half the pitchers are doing it. They found their fall guy, & he's still kicking ass in Japan.

  • wyldeman7
    wyldeman7 2 months ago +25

    I've been watching his vlogs recently and it's not only made me really like him but really like baseball.
    I love how he gets into the weeds and analyzes his craft and is constantly working on it. Getting a behind the scenes view of a professional sport is cool too.
    Plus he isn't some physical specimen with a God given gift. He's a regular guy who made it to the bigs on sheer obsession.
    I wish him the best.

    Bauer's experience sounds a lot like what Jim Bouton dealt with when he was playing in the late 60s and early 70s. Diversity of thought is stamped out by management of mlb and its teams. But it infiltrates all levels of baseball; I saw it in Little League and travel ball when my kid was 10, 11, 12 years old.

    Trevor Bauer is from the pronation school of pitching. Texas Baseball Ranch or (TBR) was a pitching camp near Conroe, TX that had exclusive training camps for people of all ages. The most notable coach there was Brent Stromberg (Coach Strom) who coached for the cardinals for a long time and also the Astros when they won the world series. TBR is closed now but was owned by Ron Wolforth. I went to TBR four times and was also made fun of for my unorthodox training and warmup routines as they were taught to me at TBR. Really cool to see Bauer playing. Pronation eliminates elbow pain if anyone ever wants to look into it. It's why bauer should theoretically never get Tommy Johns.

    • Josh Tormaschy
      Josh Tormaschy 4 months ago +1

      What exactly do you mean by pronation. I know what pronation is just trying to understand how it helps with staying injury free.

    • 12th
      12th 4 months ago +16

      @Josh Tormaschy There is a lot that goes into it. Basically pronation is reducing the tension on your elbow after the pitch. A lot of stuff goes into it before delivery as well like arm angle being above/below shoulder, forearm angle and angle at the time the ball crosses your body. Lots of specifics go into it honestly. Injury free is not quite accurate bc shoulder pain is expected, however, elbow injuries are the primary concern and reason pitchers careers end.

    • Perkkis
      Perkkis 2 months ago +1

      ​@12thhowever it is quite well documented that pretty much all of the stress to your ucl comes at the start of your throw so i don't really get how pronation during or after the throw should lessen the chance of needing tommy john's.

    • 12th
      12th 2 months ago

      @Perkkis I would just say do more research. Pronation and this school of pitching isn’t just about elbow pain. It does certainly do that, but they also talk about lessening shoulder pain, reducing recovery time, etc. it’s complicated tbh

    I'm happy to hear a few of his teammates saw his methods as useful and helpful to there careers. At the end of the day, the guys are paid to play baseball. I've worked with some impossible people that I cringe about every detail of there lives, the further away from work, the weirder it got. Though I would probably never call this person again and I know it makes him sad cause either he likes to take credit for teaching me or actually, he genuinely liked me as a person, and I was his only friend really, but I do credit him for teaching me everything I know about the trade we were in, and he recognizes I surrpassed him. You have to have tolerance for people and allow them to make a$$e$ of themselves, it adds an element to life, if nothing else you see first hand what you are happy you are not like. Besides, when you're on a team, he ultimately has to get with the program or leave and who knows, maybe he has finally looked himself in the mirror. People like this come around sometimes and realize the world does not revolve around them or owe them any favors. Pretty harsh editorial it sounds like to me. Just firing through all the negatives. Idk much about him personally but when he was on he was a real good pitcher. The percentage of people capable of doing what he can do is ridiculously fractional. I'm sure I've tolerated worse.

    Dude reminds me of a kid I played with in HS in the early 00s named Jimmy.
    Dude couldn't throw a fastball to save his life. But he could throw a fuckin curveball that was aimed behind your head, broke 6 feet and hit low inside strike at like 40mph.
    Dude was my favorite pitcher ever as a catcher. His breaking balls were game breaking.

  • Steven Wilson

    He was a genius with a child's mentality. I would have told the team to just let him do his thing and leave him alone for a few seasons and take advantage of his abilities. His weird way of training himself obviously worked great when he wasn't being picked on over it. And a loner, obsessed with throwing a ball better than anyone else and still having a 4.8GPA is obvious proof that he had something special, even though different, in him.

      I think that’s pretty accurate. Kind of like an evil genius who just happened to be really good at a game where they pay him millions of dollars. He probably doesn’t give two shits about playing baseball either. It just provided him with the opportunity to retire at an extremely early age. Definitely gives me an “American Psycho” Christian Bale vibe about him…

    Throughout these stories, I didn't know players had the authority to kick a player off the team. Very interesting. Never would think of doing this no matter what. Play3d alot of sports where there were complicated guys who I hoped would quit but we as players should NEVER have that authority. A team member either gets along with each other or quit. The coach has that authority-PERIOD!

    • mrgreanjeans
      mrgreanjeans 10 months ago +6

      That’s east to say but when ten kids decide not to play unless the coach does something about a toxic player that is affecting everyone else on the team…coach gotta make a move. Certainly the coach does make the call, but the players can absolutely force the coaches hand. A good coach let’s the players decide. I’ve seen that first hand with a prima Donna running back that couldn’t make up his mind whether he wanted to play or not, we as a team ended up making that decision for him.

    • Qardo
      Qardo 7 months ago +2

      Well, when players have a PLAYERS' UNION. They have a lot of power and say who is in and who is out. And if the players do not like you. All because you pull a stunt that not only got you in trouble, but shed light on other players who could have done the same thing. They REALLY want you gone.
      Look, I am not saying there shouldn't be a Union for any sport involving the players. Just pointing out how hypocritical they are. Believing they have power. Yet, they are allowed to believe this. After all. It is the team and league owners that could simply disband the teams and league tomorrow. The players would be powerless to do anything. They can try, but their power is an illusion.

      LION TAMER 6 months ago +3

      @Qardo not sure which grown up lied to you, but unions DO NOT arbitrate ANYTHING between players & management, much less players & players LOL. When you grow up & learn that unions enforce labor contracts & THAT'S IT (lol, good luck getting them to do anything else) you'll look back on your asinine comment with a genuine "wtf was I thinking" mindset.

      I completely empathize with you in regards to those points in life where you have to decide to stay away from those people who you just don't WANT to keep disliking.
      For me, being forced to be around these types of individuals for too long turns me into someone I utterly dislike.
      One of the very few DEFINITE things I've learned in life in our era (over a TON of time) is that one of the worst behaviors spreading serious ugliness in society is the INITIATION of negative personal critical judgments... it often comes with mob-mindedness, ignorance, misunderstanding, unnuanced lack of thorough consideration or oversimplified rationales, pigeonholing, black-and-white thinking, etc.
      Hashing things out or discussing things is not what I'm talking about, btw. I'm talking about personal belittling; ego attacks on one end and ego exaltation on the other.
      Even though my opinion is often decided about many issues, with EVERY issue, I try my best to make sure that I understand the VALIDITY of each side and ESPECIALLY the center (a position between all decided avenues)... to understand the validity of the conflict, rather than going, "this whole dilemma is crazy because it's obvious that [whatever perspective] is the answer!"
      If anything, I try and live inside of all opinions for a small while. I'll often make an exercise of arguing for sides I disagree with to make sure I can understand things better.
      * Also, almost always, the most unusual individuals have a massive amount of something to offer in one way or another.
      way too long... sry

    I can relate to him on the early parts of his life. The bullying just adds on and on, until the smallest things, can make you snap. I gets so bad that you can’t tell the difference if someone is being nice and giving you a compliment or if they are picking on you. The same thing with the school situation happens to me and some of my friends. You would go from elementary to middle, middle to high school, high school to college, and every where you go, you can’t escape it.

    • Clay

      I've been there. Someone looks at you wrong and you're ready to go, but not because you are bad, but rather you've been beaten, ridiculed, mocked, and ostracized for years and years and years. To self-persevere, you can become extremely aggressive at even the slightest offense. I'm an older man and I still have to practice a lot of self-control if someone insults me in a bar or says something rude to me out on the street. This all stems from my k-12 experience. And I don't like the commentator of this video acting as if Trevor deserves to get bulled because "he was weird, eccentric, out of touch, and unathletic". Wow, so there's a justification of bullying someone who's a little different? Okay, that just gives the eccentric more ammunition to become more aggressive.

      yeah. I can't believe all the ultra positive comments I'm reading on this video. Sounds like he's not very pleasant to be around in the dugout, yet all these people are praising him. Although I've been watching him on that Momentum Clip-Share channel and he seems to be a pretty cool guy. I guess in an actual baseball setting he's a terrible person.

    Bro your story is one of the most real and inspiring baseball/life story’s I’ve ever heard. I’m a baseball lifer myself with 13 years of minor league exp so your story resonated with me on a personal level. While I’m definitely of the old school mentality as far as antics go but I truly believe what you do is warranted. The problem with baseball is summed up in your story. What you do is unique and real and rather than looking at what you do to at the very least to gain a new perspective and learn they twist the facts and push you out, I’d bet if I were to talk to your teammates I’d get a different story, well from most of them. Lol.
    Keep doing what you do my man, true passion and self belief are definitely the cornerstone and I’ve seen nothing but that in every video I’ve watched.

    Man. Dude was bullied to such a great extent, he could have seriously snapped on people growing up. He's done maybe a few controversial things but hey, I don't think he's the worst player. He proved some of his unorthodox methods to work. The assault was the worst thing. Prior to that, he just seems like a guy that was teased and bullied a lot and dealt with a good amount of abuse.

    What an interesting guy. I believe he has deep rooted issues that remained unresolved from his years of being bullied and dismissed. It would explain why he is always going against the grain, getting revenge against the whatever systems are in place because he can do it better without their help. The spin increase and his calling for regulation was ignored. In response he used that very thing to become better than everyone else. He's manipulative and destructive, but this isn't his fault anymore. He has become this through the traumatic experiences he had in life, ultimately mixed with a lethal cocktail of fame and money. He is responsible for his choices and actions, but he is capable of so much more. It's hard to say where he will be in the future of the league, but it's my honest hope he finds peace with his past so he can truly release his full potential.

Now if those allegations are true, this all goes out the window, but as far as I'm aware, there's no hard evidence.

    • Andrew Arnold

      Bauer turned 15 in January of 9th grade [ie before baseball season]. Virtually every boy has reached puberty by 15. But you are right that there's a lot of physical maturation after freshman year in most boys. Some have reached their adult height before beginning high school.

      @Gman5-0 i dont think what you said makes as much sense as you think it does. Especially the naive assumption people “cant keep a secret” in the world of non disclosure agreements and big pay offs. Wont say its not possible he did everything claimed, but its very questionable to drop charges but then continue to talk with MLB.
      Also, as I mentioned im an outsider to the baseball world so i dont have bias for players or teams. In this video it shows pretty clearly he was seen as difficult, and his team management were not shy about their feelings. This matters, as theres history of the team management and MLB having issues with him. If there wasnt that history and the alleged victim didn’t drop charges while maintaIning contact with MLB I would not be questioning it.

    I'd seen a couple of the Bauer vids that were about him cheating but that was it. He is absolutely an iconoclast. I want to be fair here. What if he is what he appears to be? An amazing genius? An incredibly creative baseball mind? If he were an artist, an actor, a politician, this kind of behavior would be accepted and almost expected. Baseball is a team sport, and if you played it at any level for more than one season you already know there's no I in TEAM. Baseball has had unusual characters by the score over its life. Think back to Mark Fidrych, Al Hrabosky, Mike Marshall, and so many names that would almost make a small town phone book. I'm willing to admit that what I've already seen about Bauer had me choosing this video because I disliked him. He was making a mockery of my game. If he's been violent with anyone that's a whole different story. Violent people get locked up. Just usually not violent millionaires. But if we're strictly talking baseball here.......he's no team player, but his statistics over the last couple of years are impressive. Baseball has been a home and haven to many fine men. Roberto Clemente comes to mind immediately. A true Hall of Famer that got there without having to be a designated hitter, and a man that gave his life for others. Maybe on the cosmic scales of who's nice and great you just have to have a Bauer, who's just great at baseball and appears at least to have terrible people skills. I'm just saying......we put up with this from actors. Why not a baseball player that won his sport version of the Academy Award last time around

After six months, when the entire team had to re-test their max outs (yeah that's right, we tested our one rep maxes at the start of off season and then again a week before the season started. Like I said, we had a shit S&C coach), I was the only person on the entire team who saw more than a 5% increase in his max out (30%). Coach pulled me aside and told me if I ever trained without the team again, I was off the team.

      @Sports Trap I was more or less talking about his childish and immature acts and his confrontational demeanor and general dislike of people. Most of that stems from being bullied by his peers and coaches throughout his life, and for THAT, I don’t blame him.
      Obviously none of that is an excuse to abuse people in any way. Abusers are human trash and deserve to be treated as such. But it’s also worth noting that where the case stands right now, no charges have been filed and it hasn’t gone to court. His accuser claims he physically and sexually abused her and Bauer claims it was consensual rough sex. Who’s lying? We will probably never know.

    We would love to have him back in Cincinnati anytime. The only Cy Young award winning pitcher we’ve ever had. Think of that!

    Honestly, I feel he should be able to come back. I get the negative media that will come with it but he really is a good pitcher and if *assuming he doesn’t get found guilty of these allegations* he gets blackballed from the league, they would be doing a disservice to the fans of the sport. Obviously this is just my opinion, but Bauer was one of my favorite pitchers to watch.

    I think I like this guy . Is he quirky ? Yes . Is he eccentric? Yes. Does he march to his own beat ? Yes . Does he do things different? Yes . Can he throw a baseball and win games for team ? Yes. As long as you can set parameters to his perceived bad behaviors while in a team environment, I wouldn't have a problem with the guy . Ray Rice killed someone and the NFL let him play FFS!!!!

    Number 2 at most - to Pete Rose, who DID earn a lifetime ban from Baseball.
    Pete and his ban have been controversial for DECADES, as he's the lifetime hits leader and would be in the Baseball Hall of Fame if it was NOT for the ban from the sport.

    I feel almost certain that he will play in the major leagues again. Someone's going to take a chance on him because he's no more crazy than the top few other guys in various major sports that have been distractions like this. Even though he seems to be making a mess of things there aren't many guys who can do what he can do so . . . Fantastic video and what a story!

    • The Thomahawk

      Yup, unless he's convicted of a crime for this which I highly, highly doubt, he'll pitch again. I still think it was consensual but went too far, which if I were him I'd have settled immediately tbh. The one from 2019 the texts he's released pretty much prove that chick is crazy.

      An NFL executive once said if Hannibal Lector ran a 4.2 40 yard dash, they would just say he had an eating disorder.
      If Bauer can settle and get this case behind him, a team I think would take the risk.

    It's been 20 years since I cared about baseball so I don't know this guy well enough to have an opinion on him individually. But if he has only faced civil action which found in his favor there isn't much grounds for breach. Not that that guarantees his future, but if they do try to break that contract they have high odds of being his next court victory.

  • Jon Fox
    Jon Fox 4 months ago +4

    I've been watching his youtube videos and his time in Japan has been interesting. He comes across as a decent guy and always seems to have time for his fans. It's unfortunate the dodgers and mlb were so quick to throw him under the bus when the sexual abuse allegations were made against him, for anyone curious a 3rd party arbitrator decided there was nothing to substantiate the allegations and no charges were filed.
    Like many have pointed out, it's interesting to see how he was mocked for his odd ways of training and approaching the game, and now after sometime his ways are being effectively utilized by others. Science is not a democracy or a general consensus, *cough* Neil DeGrasse Tyson. There's a right and wrong.

    • Industrial Pallet Worx

      In my own personal opinion THIS is the problem with baseball. The old adage of this is how we always did it sticks in the MLB. Anything considered taboo is off limits. I can't stand the "unspoken rules". If they aren't in the rule book that you can't do it FU then. That's my opinion. MLB has a viewership problem and the sooner they realize people don't care about their ridiculous BS the faster they can solve the problem. Just like the hall of fame and election to it. To try to impress a bunch of writers that never played the game at the professional ranks enough to get their vote. Well that's preposterous. Considering the hit king AND the homerun king aren't in the hall is blasphemy. For these reasons I don't really watch baseball and I really won't. Baseball needs to change and until it does it will just be the same old boring game. It's irritating considering I loved to play baseball when I was a kid. Those teammates and coaches in Cleveland and every other stop that gave him a hard time will one day regret it. Definition of an idiot doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different outcome. Those players that struggle to stick will just tell themselves eventually I guess I just don't have the talent, instead of finding a way to make yourself better and out work the other guys.

      @TheLegendBroly SS I would agree with you on that. He was thinking differently and doing it his own way. That goes against conventional wisdom and cuts across the grain. For that he was bullied.

  • John Akers

    Fair number of other comments have said it... its definitely a mix of things, but one ingredient is bullying at a young age. This video has 5 million views at the time of me writing this (its a great video), but hopefully a little bit of a lesson is learned, particularly if you're a high schooler, or parent.
    Some kids adapt, ignore, learn to cope with bullying. Others don't. It turns them into "screw everyone, I don't need help", super abrasive types. We've all met someone like that from family, school, work, or just life. They're hard to talk to because their view of things is way different. They have short fuses, big tempers, and are never good enough, in their view. Throw in solitude on the internet, particularly in the last decade, and well... you see the result.
