Major League Baseball made a statement by suspending Trevor Bauer for two seasons (324 games) under its domestic violence and sexual misconduct policy. Our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment begins with discussing the punishment and whether Bauer has any chance at returning to MLB.
On the field — with more pleasant topics — we also cover Clayton Kershaw setting the Los Angeles Dodgers career strikeout mark and whether or not he’s the franchise’s greatest pitcher, five New York Mets combining for a no-hitter (in addition to the team having the best record in the National League), and the abysmal Cincinnati Reds.
The 2022 Major League Baseball season is in its early days, so storylines are just beginning to develop. For instance, Shohei Ohtani’s apparent slow start. But the reigning American League Most Valuable Player looks like he’s finding the form that made him a superstar last season.
On WISE Sports Radio, we also discussed Trevor Bauer preparing to make things difficult for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs ownership deciding not to bid on Chelsea Football Club, and Ichiro’s impressive ceremonial first pitch. Oh, and the USFL dusted off some nostalgic brand names to give spring football another shot.
