Remember, he came up this season when Vernon Wells went down. One month into the season he is putting these numbers up. He is also technically a rookie. Besides Ichiro, Fred Lynn in 1975 was the last MVP and ROY in the same year. This could happen. Angels have been on fire since his call up. I don't think it is coincidental. I have wrote him in the 25 times I was allowed (also did Harper). Last hours to vote so get it in.
Well, Harper is a year younger than Trout and posting incredible numbers for his age. Both are.
I don't see Trout continuing to hit .340+, but who knows. I just don't see him being able to compete with Hamilton for the MVP as long as Hamilton stays healthy.
I said it before on this page, Trout and Harper will be killer hitters in baseball in 3-4 years. Absolutely killer. I think Harper will be a bigger power threat, but Trout has more speed. It will be fun to watch them for years crush pitchers.
