Trevor Bauer, unwilling to accept his likely fate as No Longer a Major League Baseball Player, has now resorted to attempting to bring other fellow players down with him, and Los Angeles Dodgers fans have to be embarrassed by his actions if they weren’t already.
On Tuesday, MLB levied its suspension on Matt Harvey, who testified in the recent Tyler Skaggs trial, revealing to the judge that he had supplied the late pitcher with Percocet pills when the two were teammates on the Los Angeles Angels. Harvey was hit with a 60-game ban for his admission, but was granted legal immunity for providing valuable information.
Additionally, Harvey opened up about his own drug usage with cocaine and opioids, which was undoubtedly a difficult moment for him. Another important aspect of the trial to note is that Harvey did not provide Skaggs with the drugs that resulted in his death — federal prosecutors determined that was former Angels employee Eric Kay.
But that didn’t stop Bauer from drawing parallels between this case and his sexual assault investigation, which featured three separate women coming forward to allege numerous disturbing details about their encounters with Bauer.
Bauer’s favorite thing in the world is apparently “THE TRUTH,” which he embarrassingly titled his YouTube video after the LA District Attorney’s Office opted not to pursue criminal charges against him, but he sure made it a point to vaguely paint Harvey as the chief wrongdoer in his case with Skaggs.
Trevor Bauer remaining on Twitter is embarrassing for Dodgers fans
Ah, yes, Bauer doing all that he can to campaign before his appeal hearing begins on May 23. Classy stuff. Also, yes, Harvey admitted to a felony, but only because he was granted immunity knowing he could still face discipline from the league (like Bauer, he wasn’t charged with anything, but was still suspended).
Also … two very different cases, Trevor! In fact, they’re not comparable. Illicit drug use in the United States is an epidemic, with the opioid crisis being a well-documented dark cloud over the nation. That doesn’t make it any “better” than committing another crime, but Bauer was accused of violent sexual assault on three separate occasions and has complained that the media is “out to get him” because of the various op-eds written criticizing him with the information that has been publicly provided.
MLB conducted its own investigation and determined there was enough evidence to suspend him, which further goes to show that just because someone is found “not guilty” or isn’t hit with criminal charges doesn’t absolve them from any wrongdoing.
And this isn’t even about that, anyway. This is Bauer once again showing his true colors in an attempt to paint himself in better light. If he hasn’t learned by now that such childish behavior won’t help him in any manner, then he never will.
