    Yeah! Where can I do a 1st half of 2019 league?

    On a serious note though, his 4.11 FIP and 4.44 xFIP in the 1st half wasn't exactly enticing.

    But again, even if you buy in at those levels, why do you trust 2018 and the 1st half of 2019 and not the rest of his career?

    2018 and the first half of 2019 make an upward trend to me. I think there at least a few factors working against him (mental, velocity, park/league adjustment) in the second half, enough to throw out the last 10 starts. And if Bauer was going into this season with 2018 and the Cleveland half of his 2019, everyone would be all aboard.

    As far as buying his stats in that timeframe...it is all backed up by the underlying skills, spin rate, swinging strike, K/BB etc. I am fine letting folks discount him based on 10 starts.

    Just for the record while I am not on board the Trevor Bauer band wagon, I would take him if the auction price is right. If you and I were in the same auction, I would bid you up.

    You missed the edit - too quick on your feet. If a 4.11 FIP in the 1st half is the upside, he's going way too high.

    Im not saying it is the same thing or you said this, but everyone is awful quick to buy in on Giolito for the same reasons they wont buy in on Bauer.

    The only way I buy him if he goes undervalue and even then I'm taking a risk. He had one really good year and the rest of the time mediocre. In other words he is average at best. If the bidding gets up to his value or slightly beyond are you willing to pay for that?

    Wow. This could bump him up a couple rounds if it happens. I guess all those desert pitches helped his stamina?
