Cincinnati Reds starter Trevor Bauer hates the Houston Astros and their fanbase, and the feeling appears to be mutual, likely because Bauer can't stop trolling them at every chance he gets.
He showed up to Summer Camp wearing a "Trash Town" t-shirt, invalidating Houston's World Championship, and we won't lie...we got a little teary-eyed.
The Reds won't play the Astros this year, as the shortened schedule limits the Reds to NL and AL Central teams, so Bauer won't get to exact his revenge on the Astros this season.
Bauer has stated that he wants to take one-year deals as a free agent to keep joining contenders. Even if the Astros withstand the initial blowback and become a contender once again, something tells us Bauer isn't going to consider Houston.
Be it 60 games with no fans in the stands or 162 with every seat in the house sold out, Bauer will maintain his seething hatred for a team that used such blatant and illicit means to pick up a World Series title.
