MIKE TROUT NEWS

Albert Pujols’ 500th home run will be an achievement worthy of our attention

If you learned to love baseball in the 1980′s and early 1990′s such as myself, than you’ll remember the days when 35 home runs was enough to lead either league, and that the 54 homers hit by Cecil Fielder in 1991 was a very big deal. Regardless of who’s at fault, the days of low-numbered, long-ball champions are gone, and because of the PED-era, nobody will ever approach...

Mike Trout is promoting Marlon Wayans movies, for some reason

When it comes to baseball, Mike Trout is great at just about everything. Sure, you can quibble about his arm strength, but that’s about it. Off the field, however, Trout has a lot of work to do. By all accounts he is a genial, upstanding fellow, but it turns out that he isn’t exactly a cinephile. Go see my boy @marlonwayans hilarious movie #ahauntedhouse2 in theaters TONIGHT...

Going to sleep on Mike Trout was a bad idea

I had the Angels game somewhat queued up last night when I passed out on the couch with my bulldog – Garrett Richards was doing everything he could to hand the game back to the A’s despite those darling Angels doing everything they could do to get him the win in the face of his own futility. And I fell asleep on Michael Nelson Trout. And wouldn’t you know it that he did something...

Mike Trout's clutch HR not enough as Angels downed by A's in extras

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Trout tried his best to be the hero Tuesday night. The Angels star hit a two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings. In the bottom of the 11th, representing the tying run again, he legged out an infield single, stole second base, and advanced to third on a Raul Ibanez groundout to first, but he never made it home.

New York columnist writes terrible, bizarre anti-stats column

I’ve learned to tune out the seemingly never-ending parade of writers who resort to ad hominem attacks when they write columns about sabermetrics. More often than not, the columns go something along the lines of “derp derp computer geek mom’s basement spreadsheets watch the game” without really providing any sort of actual criticism or context, just mindless complaining that...

The Historic Awesomeness of Mike Trout in One Chart

This just in, the start of Mike Trout’s baseball career has been historically excellent. OK, obviously that’s not news. It’s been well documented that Trout’s 2012 season was the best season ever for a 20-year old according to fWAR. It should come as no surprise then that Trout’s 2012 was also one of the highest fantasy value above replacement (FVAR) seasons ever for such...

Fool Me Four Times

I was moved by the fact that Bartolo Colon pitched such a good game on Tuesday while dealing with a significant illness in the family. To say that Bartolo got shelled on Sunday because his heart wasn’t in it would minimize the way he got through his outing on Tuesday. And more importantly it would minimize his very real situation. Sunday was just a 40 year old guy throwing batting...

MLB Award Predictions

American League MVP: Mike Trout. After finishing 2nd in 2012 and 2013, Trout is set to finally break through this year. With the consensus that he is already the best all around player in the majors, coupled with him moving into Center and Miguel Cabrera moving back to 1st. I see Trout finally winning his 1st MVP award. Something I feel he should have already done twice. Honorable...

Mike Trout’s New Salary Should be Higher

Mike Trout is underpaid. This may seem ridiculous seeing that he is a 22 year old being paid millions to play a game for a living, but going by market value, he deserves more than the 6-year, $144.5 million deal he signed on Saturday. Simply put, he is the best player in baseball and deserves to be paid like it. However, three other players recently signed contracts equal or larger...
