per ESPN:

Major League Baseball announced a 324-game suspension for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer on Friday, the equivalent of two full seasons, making it by far the most severe punishment handed out under the sport's domestic violence policy.

Bauer promptly released a statement announcing he was appealing the suspension, thus becoming the first player to appeal punishment through MLB's domestic violence policy.

"In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policy," Bauer's statement read. I am appealing this action and expect to prevail. As we have throughout this process, my representatives and I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings."


Win Twins!!

did you read his explanation?

Look, this is a he-said, she-said, so who really knows.

But, when your defense is:

"she wanted me to have anal sex and choke her," that is not going to do a lot for your image.

Any team that signed him would be targeted by every woman's group in the country. Not to mention their sponsors. What company wants to be associated with the "rough sex and choking" guy? And imagine how the fans would treat him?

I hope he saved his money, because his career is over.

With multiple accusers, it's looking like a pattern. Nothing wrong with getting kinky, but it obviously has to be consensual.

MLB is making a strong statement. I wish NFL woulda done the same with Watson.
