CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Trevor Bauer’s had an interesting week, to say the least. The Indians pitcher began by harassing a college girl on Twitter, and ended it by shutting down his Friday media session when I asked him about the social media controversy.

Bauer had answered my first question about concerns over trade rumors (not surprisingly, he’s not concerned), and when I followed with a question about his controversial tweets earlier in the week, he ended the interview by saying “Thanks for your time guys,” and turned away.

It was an interesting response, considering he had tweeted earlier that reporters should get their facts straight by asking him directly.

The Indians have talked to Bauer about his Tweeting, as they do with all players. But on this day, he clearly didn’t want to talk to me about it.
