On today’s episode, we’re joined by Cincinnati Red pitcher Trevor Bauer. In August, Bauer set a Reds record with 41 strikeouts in just four starts. Dominating on the field, Bauer hopes to do the same off of it.

As someone who has "done things differently" his entire life, Bauer is bullish on the future of Momentum, the athlete-centric media company he started in 2019, the positive steps Major League Baseball and players have made on social media, and a new model he believes to be the future of how agents do business.
