The Chicago White Sox seem to fit the needs of Trevor Bauer in free agency.
The Chicago White Sox, in a lot of people’s minds, don’t have a shot at Trevor Bauer. That may or may not be true but it shouldn’t be true for no reason at all. The White Sox have a lot of money to spend on their roster so they should at least be in on Bauer’s services. He is an interesting guy on and off the field but most importantly, he is one of the best pitchers in the world.
Bauer won the National League Cy Young Award in 2020 because of how dominant he was. He had a 1.73 ERA, 0.795 WHIP, 100 strikeouts, and a 2.7 WAR over 73 innings pitched (11 starts). It was a dominant year at the perfect time as he is looking to get paid big time.
We all know by now that Bauer is active on social media as he tries to push his brand. He also uses his platform to let fans be more involved in what goes on during the life of a Major League Baseball player. It has gotten very interesting for White Sox fans lately as he has started to talk about them more. With the signing of Liam Hendriks, the Sox have been in the news and Bauer has been talking about it.
He also makes a new YouTube video for his channel with regularity. His latest one should make White Sox fans think a little bit. In this video, he went into heavy detail about the four things that he is looking for in the team that signs him. There are plenty of things to think about here but the White Sox are absolutely capable of meeting all four of these criteria.
If he agrees and they show him that they can meet these criteria, they would be the perfect match for him. It might be a long shot right now as nobody knows what his true intentions are but the White Sox make too much sense for him.
