Pujols produced ridiculous numbers, and played the whole season. He didn't miss a couple months like Trout did, so I would probably give the edge to Pujols. It depends how much you weigh Trouts base running, and CF defense.
Gooden's rookie year was pretty crazy as well (judging by the stats, I wasn't actually alive yet to witness it). I'll take the everyday player in Trout, but it's more of a preference thing at that point.
