Trevor Bauer hates the Astros. He has made his feelings on Houston and its sign-stealing scandal abundantly clear over the past few months.
But would Bauer, who will be a free agent this offseason, ever consider joining Houston?
Well, money talks.
Baseball blogger (and fellow Astros hater) Dan Clark on Saturday asked Bauer whether he’d sign with the Astros if they presented the best offer. The right-hander seemingly suggested he’d be open to joining the team he so passionately loathes.
Take a look:
It’s a virtual certainty that Bauer doesn’t join the Astros, but it’s fun to talk about.
The 29-year-old likely is headed for a major payday this winter. Bauer went 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA over 11 starts this season for the Cincinnati Reds and has emerged as one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.
