Growing the Bauer Brand

Trevor Bauer is not exactly marketed by Major League Baseball, but the primary reason for that is because Bauer markets himself — and yeah, because he hates Rob Manfred, but we won’t discuss that now. Bauer is heavily involved in Momentum, a budding media company that has earned support from Barstool Sports’ Jared Carrabis.

The sunshine of Southern California is the perfect place for Bauer to continue growing the now infamous Bauer brand alongside glorious men like Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. How fun would Bauer-Trout vlogs be? Every Angels fan would enjoy that.

Even if the Angels were to be a classic .500 team and nothing more once again in 2021 with Bauer, at least the season would be fun and tickets would be sold. Who knows, you might get to see Bauer chuck a baseball over the center field fence or see the famous flaunt after every strikeout. Bauer is polarizing — that might be an understatement — but he is a very good pitcher and a fun human being.

The Halos don’t just need Bauer’s mound presence, Bauer needs the Halos’ culture.
