The question, though we all know the answer, is whether an obtuse, historically obnoxious white dude was either unaware that doing a samurai sword celebration in your first year in Japan would be insulting, or that he knew it would be and was going to do it anyway to either make it clear he thinks those kinds of feelings and country and league is beneath him? That he can do this because he’s Trevor Bauer and he’s only here because he has to be, and thus he doesn’t need to worry himself about being respectful to anyone?

Softball question, I know. At least he’s well on the way to being too toxic to pitch in Japan as well, before he starts his career as a weekly guest on whatever farm runoff collector Tucker Carlson ends up. (Ed. note - he’s going to have to fight Aubrey Huff for that gig).
