It’s hard to argue against it, as he continues to produce at an incredible rate in now his third full big league season. However, there are players not to be overlooked in this matter.

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.

Talent Comparison: Trout vs. Bonds
