    Mike Trout - wow

    How about that catch tonight? I know he's just a rookie, but I think he's one of the best baseball players I've ever seen.

    Agreed, no one can argue with that. He's been very impressive, let's hope there's no sophomore slump.


    Edit: a slumps ok when he plays against the reds

    i just checked his stat line on ESPN. batting .349, 19 home runs (on pace for 29), and 33 steals while only being caught 3 times (on pace for 50/5)

    the guy's got a serious chance of winning both ROTY and MVP
    Reds record when attended in 2011: 0-1

    He's the easy choice for MVP at this point. I don't think there are many other players even close. Cano? Hamilton's been so cold. Trout is putting together a historic season. We may literally be seeing the best rookie year of all-time.

    Ichiro didn't have the power numbers that Trout has.

    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.

    I definitely see a 40/40 season in his future.

    He should be the unanimous AL MVP.

    So the question is, who would you rather have going forward. Trout or Harper.

    I'd go Trout. Dude is a beast.

    Well at least the 2/3 of the season MVP. Most teams have between 53-56 games remaining, a lot can change in that amount of time.

    True, but it would take a lot of ground to cover to even get close to him. I mean, in the NL at least you have McCutcheon and Votto separating themselves as the best batters in the NL. Trout is so far ahead of every batter at pretty much everything. The Angels have a very bright future.

    Agree, that's why I said 2/3 of the season MVP. Who knows an injury could leave him 50 games shy of a full season.

    The guy is legit, and his rookie year has been remarkable, I don't think there is any debating that. However, keep in mind that he played 18 games against NL teams and only 68 games against the AL. That means he's seen most pitchers once or twice. It's not uncommon for a young player to light it up for an extended period as a rookie before pitchers learn the best way to get him out.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    to me its not even close. i go with trout b/c i now know what he's capable of. harper could end up being better but the safer choice seems to be trout.

    Why didn't the Angels have him on the team on opening day?
