I think Trout is the clear favorite, and I am not relying on WAR or any one stat to come to that conclusion. The eyeball test alone tells me that Trout has been more valuable. And if you are looking at qualities beyond stats, Trout wins those hands down over Cabrera. Just ask any Angel fan about what Trout has brought to the Angel clubhouse.
