Mike Trout honors Ken Griffey Jr. with custom cleats after HOF induction

Ken Griffey Jr. played during the steroid era, but was highly regarded by many because he “played the game the right way” and did not give in to using performance enhancing drugs. Given the numbers he put up, that’s pretty impressive, and he was honored by getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. To honor Griffey, Mike Trout, who plays the same position as...

Of Course Mike Trout Is Stealing Bases at an Elite Rate, Again

Yesterday afternoon, Dylan Floro made his major-league debut. Anyone who has ever pitched has pictured what it would be like to stand on a major-league mound for the first time. The dream of striking out the first batter you face. The fear of giving up a home run on your first pitch. There are countless different ways to envision that first trip to the mound playing out, but I...

Here’s How Mike Trout Is Evolving

So many good players right now. Let me fluff that up. So many great players right now. For Major League Baseball, it really is a kind of embarrassment of riches. Dave just wrote about Josh Donaldson earlier. He’s great. Kris Bryant? He’s great. Francisco Lindor, Manny Machado, Jose Altuve — all great. These are just great position players, of course. These players, and so many...

Mike Trout Proposes To Longtime Girlfriend, Shows Off Generosity At Fenway

Mike Trout is a stand-up guy, and he’s showed as much during his short time in Boston. The Los Angeles Angels center fielder began his week by proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Jess Cox, which he announced Saturday on Instagram. And because Trout doesn’t do anything halfway, he did it with the help of a skywriter. And if that wasn’t enough for the week, Trout also made...

Mike Trout Wants Your Curveballs Now

Mike Trout is, once again, the league leader in position-player WAR, and league leaders in position-player WAR tend to do some incredible things. Trout just did an incredible thing on Monday, and we should talk about it. With two strikes, against Collin McHugh: No, you didn’t see that wrong. Eyewitnesses are notoriously unreliable, because memories are notoriously unreliable...

Angels GM says team has not discussed trading Mike Trout

No, folks, Mike Trout is not going to be traded any time soon. With the Los Angeles Angels off to an 18-22 start and looking nothing like a contender, some outsiders raised the question of whether the team would entertain trading Trout for a huge prospect haul to allow them to rebuild. Perhaps, they reason, the Angels would be willing to move their star center fielder. So, Angels...

Mike Trout, Angels scoff at trade: You don't move superstars

The Internet got a crazy idea about trading Mike Trout, but, spoiler alert, it’s not going to happen. First of all, let’s get one thing straight. It wouldn’t be a terrible idea for the Los Angeles Angels to trade their star center fielder, as ESPN and FanGraphs suggested. Their rotation is keeping Dr. James Andrews in business, their payroll is funding aging players, their...
