Earlier this week, as Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association continued their thus far fruitless negotiations as far as player compensation in 2020, outspoken Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer ripped agent Scott Boras for what he sees as interfering in matters that don’t concern him.

On Wednesday, following Major League Baseball’s extremely one-sided proposal, Bauer tweeted, “Hearing a LOT of rumors about a certain player agent meddling in MLBPA affairs. If true — and at this point, these are only rumors — I have one thing to say… Scott Boras, rep your clients however you want to, but keep your damn personal agenda out of union business.”

Apparently that statement ruffled the feathers of former MLB pitcher Kyle Lohse because on Thursday he tweeted his displeasure with Bauer calling out Boras and things ended up getting very personal.

Lohse, who pitched for 16 seasons in the big leagues for the Twins, Reds, Phillies, Cardinals, Brewers, and Rangers, wrote in response to Bauer’s tweet, “Who do you think has helped put a system in place where you can throw balls and never have to really work a day in your life while making unreal amounts of money? Take your comments to the MLBPA if you have concerns, not twitter. Let the union do the talking. Best of luck.”

It only got more heated from there. WAY more heated.

Then Bauer’s agent Rachel Luba got involved.

Well then. We may not have a MLB season in 2020, but we certainly can’t say they aren’t still giving us some riveting drama to watch.
