Trevor Bauer would be a great addition to the Chicago White Sox.
On Wednesday night, we were shown something from Trevor Bauer that would make him a perfect fit for the Chicago White Sox. He does not like the Chicago Cubs one bit. They defeated him in the 2016 World Series when he was a member of the Cleveland Indians and he doesn’t seem to be over it. We aren’t over it as White Sox fans yet either which is why he would be perfect here. He is an outspoken player but there are some other outspoken players on this team and he is also an elite pitcher.
He went into their battle against the Cubs with a chance to continue his run at the National League Cy Young Award. He was facing one of the guys he is battling for the award in Yu Darvish and Bauer won the game. He made it look easy while doing it too. The comments to the media about the Cubs came after the game was over and it was glorious to listen to.
The Cincinnati Reds are well out of contention so there were some rumors that they would trade him. He only has the rest of this season remaining on his contract because he only likes to sign one-year deals according to himself. Well, the White Sox should oblige and give him a one year deal. There is no reason to think they can’t be World Series contenders in 2021 so adding a guy like Bauer to the mix would really help the cause.
Imagine him pitching with the likes of Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel. You can put them in any order you like because it’s funny and you would have three aces on your staff. That is the stuff of World Series contenders for sure. We know they can hit so adding as much pitching as possible would really help.
It is amazing for the White Sox that he is the person that he is, the talent that he is, and the free agent at the time that he is. Rick Hahn and the staff are probably looking at ways to get this team over the eventual hump that is being a “playoff contender” to a “World Series contender”. A starting pitcher like Bauer would do that for sure.
