Mike Trout Still Shattering Convention With Angels, Just As He Did In Youth

BOSTON — It’s hard not to be biased when it comes to Mike Trout. Maybe someone could watch a player grow up, from a 13-year-old dominating his hometown youth leagues to the best major leaguer on the planet, and maintain a level of detachment. But not in this case. Not with Trout, a player who was surrounded with a family and support system that assured that if he made it big...

Talent Comparison: Trout vs. Bonds
