Re: Mike Trout - wow
The gap between what Harper and Trout have done to this point in their careers is massive. Sure both have potential through the roof, but given they're both still really young I think it's the easiest choice ever bc Trout has been ridiculously more productive. OPSing over 1000, stealing 30+ bases at a >90% success rate, and arguably the best defensive center fielder in the game. 6.8 fWAR in 85 games. That is absurd.
I'd be curious what Trout would command if he was a free agent right now. I wouldn't hesitate to give him 13/325
Joey Votto does not care about RBI.
NEITHER SHOULD ANY OF US
