Trevor Bauer: Part Doc Brown, Part Doc Halladay

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.

    Great article, Jon. Insightful and entertaining. Let’s hope Trevor can help UCLA bring home the bacon this year with a National Championship. It would be a terrific start to his professional career.

    MORE importantly, CONGRATS BRUINS on winning the Pac-10 outright.

    A sweep would have been nice, but I guess Bauer can’t pitch everyday.
