By Robert Cunningham, Staff Writer - Mike Trout is awesome. All of us are aware of his capability, especially at such a young age. It is almost unprecedented in baseball history. For a while now I have been toying with the idea of a “periodic article series”  focusing solely on Mike Trout and his past and hopefully, many, future accomplishments. I wanted to make the series witty, fun, and, most importantly, informative about Trout’s current and potential achievements on the field. If I go 1 for 3, in this endeavor, I’ll be happy (and more importantly hitting for average). As with all monumental and miniscule ideas (your choice) I had to put the electrons that are firing across my brain onto paper or, in this case, electrons firing across the Internet. The real problem became what to name the series? I like Mike Trout a lot as I am sure many of you do as well. It is possible that Mike will read this article and I want him to be impressed.

What the Halo? Leave Trout in CF!

Would the Giants have moved a young Willie Mays out of center field? Not a chance.

Chris Nelson an unlikely hero as Angels edge Dodgers 3-2

In a game featuring a team with a $140 million payroll facing a team with a $216 million payroll, it would only figure that the deciding run would come off the bat of a player making the minimum that was scooped up off of waivers a few weeks ago. No, it wasn't Mike Trout, Albert Pujols or Josh Hamilton coming through in the clutch. Hell, it wasn't even J.B. Shuck. The...
