I've been a tribe fan my entire life, so I've followed their prospects closely for the most part. Bauer will escalade over the hype drew pomeranz once had in the Tribe system, but even his cards didn't sell for what they would have if he was with a large market team (and going to the rockies didn't help him either). I'm about 90% sure his card prices will remain the same because of this trade, or even drop these next 2 months. Looking ahead to spring training though he has a lot more potential for his cards now since the Tribe are without an ace, and all it takes is a good first couple starts and I could see his prices really start to jump. Short term next 2 months I think prices will be down (even more than the normal offseason decline), but from Feb-Apr there's gonna be a much better increase than he would have experienced if still in arizona. Long term the Indians will let Bauer blossom and then deal him away because they don't want to pay him.
