Although that's also why I said if he improves -- if he improves and isn't injury prone he'll be the best player of all time.
Fangraphs (Dave Cameron) has repeatedly made the case that there is not much room to improve for Trout.
What you are saying is that Trout could be 15 percent more productive than any player who has walked on this planet. That is bold. Very bold.
Now, of course the caveat to my case is that anything is possible...so I have to acknowledge that. But, what odds do you give Trout of being a 200+ WAR guy for his career?
