Trevor Bauer is an enigma, hard to figure out but forthcoming with his opinions.
A sportswriter’s dream.
I enjoyed writing this story on Bauer because he is not only a fascinating character study, but a ruthless competitor, never satisfied with his play and always hungry for the next bit of intel. He is a truly mad scientist, as his study habits and attention to detail bely a voracious appetite for victory.
He moved to 12-2 with a 7-0 win over Arizona State on Saturday, a 14-strikeout, five-hit masterpiece that gave UCLA at least a share of the Pac-10 championship. It was Bauer’s eighth straight complete game and third shutout of the season, and he now has a nation-leading 189 strikeouts and a 1.27 ERA.
