Trevor Bauer's ALCS start against the Toronto Blue Jays was pushed back to Game 3 because he suffered a cut on the pinkie finger of his throwing hand in a drone accident. Then in the first inning of Game 3 on Monday, the stitches on Bauer's hand broke open and he started bleeding so badly that he had to leave the game without even finishing the first inning.
Fans immediately started referencing Curt Schilling's famous "bloody sock" game with the Red Sox in the 2004 ALCS -- even though the two are not remotely similar -- and started tweeting at Schilling. This made him irritated and launched him on a discussion of how Bauer was not actually a gamer for trying to pitch, but rather selfish for putting a hobby above his teammates, the city of Cleveland and -- above all -- winning.
Let's head to Twitter for the rest.
There you have it, Trevor. Be careful next time you're working on your drone. Better yet, don't. Wrap yourself in 17 layers of bubble wrap, stay inside, shun all hobbies, do not take the stairs and forget living in the world until your next start. How dare you put yourself above your teammates, Indians, the city of Cleveland? How dare you disrespect WINNING?
