A bloody finger may have forced Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer to exit in the first inning of the ALCS Game 3, but he was able to use the rest of his fingers just fine to relentlessly troll Blue Jays fans.
Bauer was removed from the game after pitching to just four batters after blood began gushing out of stitches he had put in on Friday after cutting his pinky finger on a drone. Luckily for Cleveland their bullpen was able to step up and they won 4-2, giving Cleveland a 3-0 lead in the series - which Bauer made sure to remind Jays fans at the Rogers Centre with a cheeky hand gesture.

But he didn't stop his trolling there.
While most of the other players were getting their beauty sleep, Bauer took to Twitter to joke about the "standing ovation" he received from Jays fans during his exit.
1) what a W!! 2) my cleats got a bit dirty. 3) loudest standing ovation I've gotten walking off the mound. 🔥🔥🔥💯💯💯... pic.twitter.com/1VUozRBSaG— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) October 18, 2016
He then went on a two-hour spree responding to angry Jays fans' tweets.
@ladiesman2452 right. And I pitched until they took me out. I think it's 3-0 in the series...wait let me check...yes. Yes it is.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) October 18, 2016
@nicholasmcmanus I'm a nerd. I like math. Math says we have a fantastic chance to win. I'll take those odds.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) October 18, 2016
@sanabria_robin thanks for being classy and wishing me harm. You're so kind.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) October 18, 2016
