Alex Bregman and Trevor Bauer kept the hot stove burning by roasting each other on Twitter
The early stages of the offseason can make for some dreary days, but don't tell that to Alex Bregman and Trevor Bauer. They maintained an entertaining rivalry throughout the 2018 season, and even though the baseball has gone away for the year, the beef has not.
It all started when Bauer issued a challenge on Twitter to other hitters to help keep himself in shape ... with an added incentive:
Also, $1000 bonus for every homer hit off me. Tag who you would like to see me match up against! You won't @abreg_1- Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) November 28, 2018
Bregman saw this and knew just how to respond.
I'll save them for the postseason next year ;) https://t.co/Dtq5HbBoG6- Alex Bregman (@ABREG_1) November 28, 2018
When Bauer called him soft, Bregman had a clip of his ALDS homer off Bauer at the ready.
Give it up for Bregman. He knows how to really rev up the competition.

Bauer's right -- perhaps the next kind of beef will come in a video format. Fingers crossed.
Either way, the next Astros-Indians game on the schedule is April 25. We already have the date circled in our calendars.
