Now, Mitch was a little stubborn in his day as well, but this trade isn't as much of a homerun as many are making it out to be. IF Bauer is willing to make changes for the better, and that's a BIG IF the more and more I hear about him, he could be a gamechanger. But, there appears to be legitimate questions about make-up and coachability


Eric Wedge something something Brandon Phillips something.

So how long before the Reds realize Choo is a butcher in the outfield when it comes to depth perception and taking angles and move him back to right field and have Jay Bruce in center? Mid-June? July?

Probably about the time that realize he's a whining vag when he sees any ball further inside than the black of the plate.

Solid player. Solid. That's it. And that's all he was here the past couple years. But someone will greatly overpay for his services. I'm glad it won't be the Indians.

He'll end up somewhere on the Brandon Phillips/Chris Perez/Milton Bradley continuum.

Trevor Bauer did this video for his personal Youtube channel. I haven't watched it yet, but it got rave reviews from Al:

Not sure if Bauer is a physiologist or a pitcher. To actually know the craft of pitching like he does means we're talking about the next Schilling if he can put it all together.

Liking this kid more and more. Notice he responds in detail to every single comment on that video.

He asked Dan Brooks of brooksbaseball.net, a site that houses a ton of Pitch F/X data, if he could do a study to see if there's a correlation between slugging percentage against and vertical release point.

Not many 22 year olds caring enough about the craft to wonder about something like that. It's impressive. I really hope it translates into results because anybody who cares that much and studies that much deserves a lot of success.

I'm really glad that the Indians are going to let Trevor be Trevor and see where it takes him and them.

Sounds like it might be a case where for a lack of a better word he's a bit of a geek and others didn't know how to address that.

Maybe this is where I get shown a bunch of number guys can do the right thing.

Hopefully he has more business smarts than Schilling.
