Yeah, Bauer is a bit of a d-bag.

 

He updated his merch with this. If he doesn't end up with them now, then this was a savage troll. Although, since it's the Muts, I'll allow it. 

Bauer is savage!

Oh, Bob ...

Does that mean that Jeff Conine left the Marlins at the altar? I thought it was the other way around. Asking for a friend.

I'm honestly kin of disappointed. I was hoping that he would be the anchor that would way the Mets down for a few year.

 

Well, at least I won't have to eat crow if he turns out to be the real thing.

Eh be more like the Cespedes sitch in 2012 - we were pretty close to signing him I believe and Oakland jumped in last second.

He got 3 years, $102M, with opt outs after years 1 and 2.

 

Get this for the salary breakdown:

Year 1 - $40M

Year 2 - $45M

Year 3 - $17M

He'll opt out after year 2 guaranteed. lol

Oh for sure if it's "only" $17M.

 

Unless he completely implodes in year 2 and then might consider it.

The post was a jab at Nightengale. He did after all post this:

Although I would not be surprised if he broke a Cespedes to Marlins story in 2012 as well.

First of all it's spelled altar not alter... and if Bauer left money there could that be how Kolten Wong found money?

Yes that's exactly what happened but anyways.

Bob is just Bobbing it up.

That tweet also says that Mike Hill was on the 93 Marlins.

Over $40 million a year those first two seasons for a guy who has only had two sub-4.00 ERA seasons throughout his entire nine-year career, one of which was a shortened campaign in which Bauer made 11 starts. 

Knock yourselves out, LA.

Because he doesn't care and takes no pride in his "work". Its awful. It's what makes his mistakes even worse.

Jon Heyman ain't below "The Nightengale Line" (copyright @FishFan95) but he pulled a Nightengale the other day with this gem:

Yet another example of how bad this type of journalism has gotten.

At least he corrects it.  Does Nightengale ever correct it?

yup, "journalism" these days is who can get it out first with the biggest/most shocking headline so they can get clicks and therefore ad money.  Not about being right.

I have never heard this saying before, is this original content?

I heard it somewhere years ago and it stuck with me but I can't remember from where. But the original version has a more explicit word in there that I left out... basically the toilets are jealous because Bauer is more full of something specific than they usually are.
