So, how does perhaps the most interesting man in Major League Baseball spend his Friday evenings? Apparently, dishing out mathematical knowledge.
Trevor Bauer, best known as the Indians right-hander whose drone malfunction led to an ALCS finger hemorrhage on the mound, came to the rescue of a Twitter follower in distress.
We're not going to pretend to understand exactly what these two were discussing, but here's a sample of the dialogue:

@BauerOutage oh and also do you understand the slope of a line and y intercept? I have a math test coming up I don't get certain things— Maddie Martin (@m_martin2021) November 12, 2016
@m_martin2021 for every 1 unit on the x axis go 2 units on the y axis. y intercept is where it crosses the y axis. Make y 0 and figure x.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) November 12, 2016
@m_martin2021 that's correct but where did the 5 come from??— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) November 12, 2016
The good news: The equation had a happy ending:
@BauerOutage it did! I got the question right and I never would have without your help thank you you have no idea how much that meant to me— Maddie Martin (@m_martin2021) November 12, 2016
Got all that? Didn't think so.
