Mets free agent target Trevor Bauer is flirting with other teams
By Tim Boyle
The romance between Trevor Bauer and the New York Mets may not blossom if he continues to flirt with other teams on Twitter.
There aren’t too many adults in this world who have made it through life without at least once being cheated on. It’s an unfortunate fact. Even more unfortunate, one of the top New York Mets free agent targets appears to have eyes for another squad.
Trevor Bauer is at the front of the pack among the top free agent starting pitchers. There’s nobody else as close to the reigning NL Cy Young winner. There’s him, there’s a void, and then there’s everyone else.
So, to see Bauer openly flirt with the Los Angeles Angels fans on Twitter, it comes as a major bummer.
I understand the Mets and Bauer aren’t in a relationship just yet. But I thought we meant something to him. Bauer praised Sandy Alderson and Steve Cohen. His agent even got in on the action—use your imagination.
Bauer may explain this away as “having some fun on social media.” We’ve heard that excuse before from a partner, haven’t we? I would like to see his DMs before trusting him again.
Despite this revelation and built-up mistrust with Bauer, I think it’s important Cohen and Company continue their pursuit. He’s just being young and stupid. He doesn’t realize what he’s missing out on by not coming to New York.
Sure, Southern California is beautiful on the outside but we can offer him some inner beauty, too!
Okay, enough of this nonsense about relationships and pumping ourselves up like we’re some kind of heartbroken teenager trying to make the heartbreaker feel bad. Bauer is allowed to flirt with whatever teams he wants. If we liked him so much, we would have put a ring on him already. Hopefully, it’s a World Series ring.
The Mets’ pursuit of Bauer should continue the whole time he’s single. I just hope this courting is closer to what men used to do back in the 1940s or 1950s when it was borderline stalkerish where they are relentless and a little unstable.

Other than catcher, starting pitching is the greatest need for the Mets this winter. Until he’s under contract, the team in Flushing needs to do whatever they can to make Bauer realize they’re the one for him.
