    Default Indians Pitcher - Trevor Bauer will only accept 1yr contracts.

    Too funny not to share.. pretty good reason to avoid multi-year deals if you ask me.

    Trevor Bauer says he's never signing a long-term deal. Only one-year contracts.Why? Turns out he made a bet with a friend: If he ever signs a multi-year deal, the friend gets to shoot him in the nuts with a paintball gun from 10 feet away.

    Ha. That's is classic! Maybe some GM's will put clauses in the long term deals and if they underperform, they get the nutshot?

    10-feet away? That’s bs...

    He can pay off that friend or just take the shot to the nuts and walk it off or hope he misses.

    No way that’s the reason he jeopardizes his future!

    Yeah... why would you jeapordize the potential to have huge financial security... I think I would offer the friend $100,000 and and sign a long term contract.

    Unless the friend is also a pro-ball player making millions. Then... you want the nut shot

    There must be other underlying reasons, otherwise I don't see why he would make that bet. There are downsides to short-term contracts for sure, but there are plenty of positives as well.

    According to Sports Illustrated, he also has a bet that he won't get married or have kids before the age of 45 unless he wins the Cy Young three times. Sounds like this dude marches to the beat of his own drum (and all the power to him). The SI story says that he figures by the time his arbitration period runs out (three more years) he estimates he'll have pulled in 40 million - enough to be comfortable for the rest of his life.

    Why do I have the feeling if this guy was a hockey player, he'd be a goalie?

    He's making 6.525mill this yr. If he pitches well he'll make like 7-10mill next yr. With that amount right there you can retire.

    If he can get about 20% more on the 1yr deal than multi-year deal, it's actually a great plan. Even if he has a down yr, he'll get paid over the 2yrs more than what a multi-year deal would pay him.
