If not for his agent, Trevor Bauer may have been a Met.
Rachel Luba didn’t convince the NL Cy Young award winner to sign with the Dodgers, but she told him to rethink his decision amid his frustration about merchandise popping up on his website prematurely suggesting he would sign with the Mets.
“It’s f–king over, I’m done,” Luba recalled Bauer telling her on the Barstool “Starting 9” podcast. “Call the Dodgers, it’s done. It’s gonna be the other team.”
The “other team” was the Mets. According to Luba, Bauer felt guilty that the merchandise was out there.
