I think baseball is going to have to put some limits on the whole "check the guy" option that managers have.

Trevor Bauer is just in a teensy little bit of hot water it looks like.

He's been put on administrative leave which at least avoids the possibility of his starting this weekend and you have to assume that if he was a potential All-Star that won't be happening.

What a piece of work that guy is.

This was the first I read of the new name before seeing it elsewhere.

Honestly thought it was a joke.

It's funny to be criticizing Cleveland's Baseball Team for having a name that's hilariously bland and inoffensive but...here we are.

Base Ballers would have been a good name.

Good news for anyone who called the team "the 'dians".

They did get Tom Hanks to narrate the reveal video though so there's that.
