2013 Bowman Chrome Draft Auto Analysis -- Part 1



2013 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks and Prospects Logo Print Runs

The first thing I do when a new set arrives is my own sabermetric research, before reading any scouting reports, watching videos, etc.  This is usually the step where I come across bargains and sleepers, but also has its drawbacks as some players I am analyzing "blindly", since I am only looking at numbers.
As the Bowman Chrome Draft autographs sets have recently been on fire, I'll be analyzing these guys in steps (the first being the manner in which I just described), and thoroughly, so we can have another good year of prospecting.

So without further ado, here is what I found.  For reference, I recommend also opening my post "2013 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospect Autograph Checklist - LINKS TO STATS", which is exactly what it sounds like.  It is the entire auto checklist and Aflac/Perfect Game/Under Armour checklist, with links to stats and every player's eBay searches.  Bookmark that page and trust me, it will be the most useful tool you have all season.  I wouldn't prospect without it.

2. Aaron Judge
Another monster of a man -- if he can translate his 6'7" frame to bombs in the Bronx, look out
