Trevor Bauer Campaigns for Mets to Sign Him
By michael obermuller
We all know by now that 2020 has been a weird year, so why should the MLB free agency period be any different? For the first time ever, a sponsored ad on Twitter linked a free agent to a franchise before any agreement had been discussed.
The ad came from Trevor Bauer's camp, and the coveted starting pitcher put himself in a New York Mets jersey.
The Amazin's have been the talk of the league since billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen bought the franchise. He has more money than any other MLB owner and is a long-time fan of the team. The Mets have been linked to just about every free agent under the sun this offseason, and Bauer hasn't been shy about his interest in joining Cohen.
This is just one bold step further, and for the extremely outspoken Bauer, is anyone really that surprised? Mets president Sandy Alderson already expressed interest in last year's National League Cy Young, stating that he liked his personality in an interview with WFAN's Carton and Roberts.
This is all setting up to be a match-made in Queens for Mets fans, who already tout arms like Jacob deGrom, Marcus Stroman, David Peterson and Noah Syndergaard (once healthy) in their rotation.
However, thus far Cohen and the Mets have been all talk on spending big money. To be fair, the free agency period is still at the very early stages, but the biggest Mets signing so far has been reliever Trevor May.
If and when the awaited splash does occur, why not Bauer? After all, he's already shown fans he looks good in orange and blue.
