SportsPulse: Former executive director of the NBPA Charles Grantham discusses why MLB and the players association need to start working together if they will overcome the financial hardships coming their way as a result of the pandemic.

USA TODAY

Two of baseball’s most notorious tweeters – Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer and former big-leaguer Aubrey Huff – had it out Monday night into Tuesday morning, trading barbs and arguing about their respective career accomplishments.

The spat began when Huff responded to a tweet from Bauer about his feelings on the potential agreement for Major League Baseball’s 2020 season, suggesting Bauer “keep quiet” based on career stats.

The back-and-forth quickly devolved as Huff hurled insults at Bauer, calling him a “cuck” with low testosterone. They wound up debating the merits of Bauer’s career WAR (a “nerd stat”) and Huff’s two World Series titles (“participation trophies”).

The 43-year-old Huff, a 13-year veteran who last played in 2012, has found himself at the center of controversies recently for misogynist and bigoted statements he has made on Twitter.

I have so much more I want to say about this whole thing but out of respect to my fellow players I’m going to continue holding my tongue. If any of you would like to talk about it please hit me up privately.

Can we remind @BauerOutage of his career 4+ ERA, 3.5 BB per 9 innings, & 10 games over .500 winning % is a 4/5th starter salary in @mlb & maybe keep quiet before he’s exposed, please & thank you. He’s a great tweeter. #MLB pitcher? That’s debatable. https://t.co/JMf5oEgDKn

Trying to tell someone not to tweet is…shall we call it, odd…coming from you Aubs. Here, have some more attention. I’ll forward some followers your way. https://t.co/GFPyotbEPE

Attention is all you crave Trev. I never had social media when I played. I was a team player. I wasn’t trying to build an outside brand for fans to suck my dick. You’re a cuck. You have low T. I suggest you inject yourself with a bit of testosterone. @MLB#makebaseballgreatagainhttps://t.co/8wKgVlwH8v

Oh no a random twitter account word vomited at me whatever shall I do. Apparently connecting with fans is a bad thing these days, who knew 🤷🏻‍♂️ thanks for recognizing my brand building ability though Aubs. About the nicest thing I’ve ever seen you tweet ❤️ https://t.co/Xw00KroXkQ

The fact you said in your 1st tweet, “I’ll forward some followers your way,” tells me everything I need to know about you @BauerOutage. You’d rather build a brand than win. That’s why I have 2 World Series rings & you jerk off to analytic spin rate geek fans like @keithlaw. @MLBhttps://t.co/ft4JTb2RzH

Thanks pookie. I know some people are only capable of doing one thing at a time. Others of us can walk and chew bubble gum simultaneously. And if you want to talk about winning, a stat called wins above replacement does that. Me: 17.4. You: 17.3. Better at wining, and tweeting 😘 https://t.co/jHE50aFoRM

— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) June 23, 2020

I’ll take these 2 rings over your .1% WAR advantage @BauerOutage 😂. The fact you value an individual nerd stat over team wins is textbook participation trophy generation. @MLBhttps://t.co/6C51tCZRk4pic.twitter.com/ILLecJOq4W

That drone injury to your hand in the 2016 World Series must have played a big part in that 0-2 record & 5.40 ERA. I’m sure your @Indians teammates were thrilled with that cool hobby of yours @BauerOutage. The @Cubs players & fans thank you! #participationtrophy 🏆 https://t.co/D2NWfgsowI

— Aubrey Huff (@aubrey_huff) June 23, 2020

Those are cute participation trophies you have there Aubs! Thanks for sharing! Proud of you little guy! https://t.co/n6g8Suiyv1
