Indians starter Trevor Bauer spoke to the media on Sunday after a drone sliced open his pinky finger and pushed back his start in the ALCS against Toronto, and revealed something shocking about himself.

His favorite Star Wars movie? Probably the worst one.

“It’s a fairly well-known thing, probably, that I’m a big nerd,” Bauer said. “And I like Star Wars a lot.

“My favorite one? I don’t know, “Phantom Menace” probably, just because I think Darth Maul is one of the coolest villains, double-sided lightsaber, and his theme song. I like that one for whatever reason. But I don’t have a least favorite one.”

It seems many do have a least favorite, and it’s that one. It receiver a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 51 on Metascore.

At least he brought the drone to the presser, that was cool. He’ll face Marcus Stroman on Monday in Game 3.
