Bryce Harper vs. Mike Trout vs. Bryce Harper

For a while there we thought the Bryce Harper vs. Mike Trout thing was done with. Trout had dusted him. Trout had dusted everyone. Is there anyone Trout hasn’t dusted? Look at yourself! You are covered in dust! Three straight MVP-quality seasons have made Trout more than a competitor with Harper, they’ve made him the […]

Watch Mike Trout’s Broken Bat Hit Russell Martin and the Home Plate Umpire

We know Mike Trout can hit almost anything, but he took his “hit” tool next level Tuesday evening against the Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez. In the top of the sixth inning, Sanchez sawed off Trout’s bat, but the future weatherman was able to fight off the pitch for a bloop single to centerfield. However, the pitch wasn’t the only thing Trout made contact with, as the barrel...

Los Angeles Angels: Prize Trout

Trout is hitting a solid .289 on the young 2015 season, but his bat was not even needed last night. It would be cliché for me to tell you that the Los Angeles Angels have an angel in their outfield. But if you watched the reigning American League MVP, Mike Trout play last night, then you might reconsider the whole cliché ordeal. May 13, 2015 was Trout’s most recent example of...

Boxscore Breakdown #34: Super Trout – Angels 2, Rockies 1

Avengers? We don’t need no stinkin’ Avengers. We got Mike Trout. This game easily could have been an embarrassing loss for the Angels, in part because of the opponent, in part because of the way they would have lost and in part because of those hideous hats that Angels gave away. Angels giving away remarkably ugly Mike Trout hat to unlucky fans pic...

Mike Trout Fixed His Only Problem

We’ve had fun, but this might be the last post I ever write about opposing pitchers trying to work Mike Trout upstairs with good heat. It’s not that I’m tired of it. I didn’t think I could ever grow tired of it. For me, it might’ve been the most interesting single thing in baseball, the […]

Not being the best makes Mike Trout the best

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Mike Trout is the best player in baseball. You could be the biggest Detroit Tigers homer fan and Miguel Cabrera’s biggest supporter, and it’d still be simple to admit Mike Trout is the most complete, best player in Major League Baseball. That’s not remotely interesting news at all. But what is interesting, is studying why Mike Trout...

Mike Trout and One-Man Teams

Mike Trout’s exploits are well known, but no matter how well Mike Trout plays, his team will not succeed without productive play from others in the lineup. Mike Trout is not the first great player with a less than stellar supporting cast. It is something he has gone through already in his brief career. In […]

Mike Trout criticized for tweet about Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Many refer to Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout as the superstar Major League Baseball needs. Trout is already one of the best players in the game at age 23, and he has no known issues with performance-enhancing drugs or in his personal life. Despite that, Trout learned last week how quickly the social media...Read More

When the Angels held back Mike Trout

Boy, this whole Kris Bryant situation sure got heated fast, right?! On the off-chance you haven’t been keeping tabs on the MLB’s most philosophically layered spring training headline, I recommend reading Mike’s proposed rule changes; Nathaniel’s examination of what the Players’ Association could do next; and Jason Wojciechowski’s appeal to ethical business practices over at […]
