On Wednesday, former Arizona Diamonbacks pitcher Trevor Bauer released a new rap song entitled “You Don’t Know Me.” The timing of the release was an incredible coincidence, as D-Backs catcher Miguel Montero had just made comments earlier this week about Bauer and how difficult he was to work with. The rap track (which you can listen to here) had plenty of curious lines in it like, “You hide behind a mask to facilitate a task,” but Bauer insists it was a message to his haters in general and not about any of his former teammates. “The song was done in early December about people on Twitter who say you’re terrible, work on your ERA, stick to this, stick to that,” Bauer said according to The Plain Dealer. “It wasn’t made about anyone in particular, certainly not about Miguel Montero.” There’s very little the now-Toronto Blue Jays pitcher could say to make me believe nothing in the song was written about what transpired in Arizona, but you had to know that’s what he would say. What really is a relief, however, is that Bauer acknowledged he is horrible at rapping. “If someone was to go out and fish and catch a two-inch fish, no one would make fun of them,” he said. “But because I go out and I’m terrible at rapping, but I enjoy the process about making the beat and writing the lyrics, and I happen to put it online, if someone wanted to listen or happened to like it, I get blown up about it and there’s a whole bunch of controversy over a hobby I do.” Welcome to life in the big leagues. Everything you do is going to be viewed under a microscope, even if it’s messing around and writing a crappy rap song. If he doesn’t already, Bauer will understand that in time.
