With the Cleveland Indians holding a media availability a day prior to their annual Tribe Fest, starting pitcher Trevor Bauer had the opportunity to address the social media spat that landed him in headlines for the better part of the past week.

He wasn’t feeling it.
Bauer’s session with reporters lasted less than 30 seconds and two questions, the first of which focused on the steady stream of trade rumors that have involved the 27-year-old pitcher this offseason
After Bauer dutifully answered the inquiry, a reporter then began another question by stating:
“You had the social media thing last week,” to which the one-time All-Star promptly ended the session.
“Alright, thanks for your time, guys,” he said before walking off.

Just prior to the Indians’ media availability on Friday, Bauer once again took to Twitter, this time to seemingly referenced the incident and criticized the coverage it has received.
Also, note to reporters, if you’re going to write baseless hit pieces about me and not even interview me for the story, at least stick to your guns and don’t bother saying hi to me in person. If you hate me just hate me and stick to it. Don’t be soft.

Interesting, he literally ran away from reporters who tried to interview him.
What an idiot.
