The coolest thing you can have as a Chicago White Sox fan beside a winning team, is that winning team getting attention nationally. We often as a fanbase critique the national media for forgetting that the White Sox exist but the better they do on the field, the more they will get noticed. Well, there isn’t a more notable thing to do during April of the regular season than to throw a no-hitter. That is exactly what Carlos Rodon did two starts ago.

Carlos Rodon’s no-hitter was a huge moment for the 2021 Chicago White Sox.

Trevor Bauer is one of the most vocal personalities in the sport. He has his YouTube channel where he posts vlogs and breakdowns of baseball and he uses that in an attempt to grow his brand and the game. He does a really nice job with it. He didn’t come to the White Sox in free agency and went with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but we don’t know how serious the White Sox were about that.

Regardless, it was cool to see him break it down on his YouTube. He clearly is into the game of baseball as a fan as much as he is a player. He broke down Rodon’s no-hitter from a player point of view and shows you what he thinks about it. Rodon threw the no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians which is Bauer’s old team which allowed for some extra insight as well.

Bauer uses tape to break down and give an analysis of Rodon’s pitches. He goes over the velocity and the movement and how it differs throughout the ballgame. There are also heat maps on the screen at times to add a little bit of extra information.

It is a long video but there is some great insight from a pitcher that has a Cy Young Award sitting on his shelf. He goes into the fact that it was almost a perfect game if it weren’t for the toe ball in the ninth inning. It was also cool to see him give opinions of Cleveland hitters and what he knows about them.

He is a polarizing player in the game of baseball. There are people that have mixed emotions about all of this but there is no doubt that it is interesting. He is clearly a good pitcher who knows what he is watching so you become smarter when you listen to these breakdowns. It is also more fun when it is one of our Chicago White Sox players that are getting this level of praise.
