Another day, another Twitter beef between Trevor Bauer and a starting pitcher for the New York Mets.
On the heels of his Friday night roast-a-thon with Noah Syndergaard, Bauer this time engaged Marcus Stroman on the social media platform that both players are active on. Since signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bauer's past social media use has been scrutinized.
"Instead of subtweeting me constantly you could just come out and say you dislike me. Speak up homie," Bauer quote-tweeted a Stroman response: the thinking emoji, which he offered in a thread accusing Bauer of being racist. "We’re both men. We can handle it."
Stroman had responded to other recent tweets portraying Bauer in a negative light with similar emojis earlier Sunday morning.
Bauer, the highest-paid MLB player for the 2021 season following his decision to sign with the Dodgers over the Mets, traded barbs with Syndergaard over a joke he'd made about Bauer spurning the Mets.
