At least he is honest.
Trevor Bauer seems to be the worst friend of baseball, selfish and unwilling to meet someone halfway.
The controversial and honest pitcher at the Indians' fault explained why he is still single in a report published by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday. When he meets a potential partner, he sets out his guidelines.
"I have three rules," he said. "One: no feelings. As soon as I feel that you develop feelings, I will cut them because I am not interested in a relationship and I am emotionally unavailable. Two: no social media posting on me as long as we are together, because privacy remains private. Three: I sleep with other people. I will continue to sleep with other people. If it does not suit you, we will not sleep together and it's perfect. We can simply be perfectly polite platonic friends.
In his mind, Bauer thinks.
"I imagine that if I were married at that time, I would be a very bad husband," he said.
This is a very good pitcher, though. The star player, who has vowed never to sign a long-term contract anywhere he becomes a free agent after the 2020 season, has a 12-6 record with a 2.21 ERA last season.
