I’ll write a 2013 fantasy rookie post about Trevor Bauer, too.  It’s inevitable.  Even after Bauer was called up to the majors and produced a 6+ ERA, his stuff was still undeniable.  There will be time to go over Bauer.  Let’s shine some light on Tyler Skaggs so he doesn’t remain Barbara Hersey to Bauer’s Bette Midler.  Sure, Skaggs doesn’t have the dazzling strikeouts like Bauer.  He might not have the upside of a Cy Young contender like Bauer.  Shoot, let’s just talk about Bauer… No!  We’re gonna talk about Tyler.
