Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer to MLB: 'Figure it the f— out'

Trevor Bauer is voicing his frustration amid the constant schedule changes being implemented by Major League Baseball.

The Cincinnati Reds pitcher tweeted that MLB needs to figure things out in reference to how it's handling game start times and deciding when to postpone games:

Bauer's outrage comes after officials decided to pull the tarp onto the field just minutes before the Reds 1:10 p.m. game against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

Bauer, who was scheduled to start against Michael Fulmer, was especially ticked off that the game had been moved up from 6:10 p.m. to early in the afternoon. 

Weather-related decisions are typically in the hands of the home team prior to the game beginning. Once the game begins, the umpires have authority over all aspects of play, including weather-related stoppages. 

Cincinnati announced that Saturday's game officially has been postponed and that the teams will play two seven-inning games on Sunday beginning at 12:10 p.m.

MLB has been trying to discourage lengthy rain delays this season amid the coronavirus pandemic. The league doesn't want players cooped up in small spaces for hours at a time due to COVID-19's ability to spread quickly.
