Mike Trout is the best baseball player on the planet currently and is sadly stuck on the west coast with awful start times and on an even worse team. The Los Angeles Angels have been hovering in baseball mediocrity over the past few years, and that is largely due to Trout. If trout was not apart of this team they would easily be bottom feeders rather than stuck in no mans land without any prospects. If the team did decide to deal Trout the amount of talent you could get in return would be astronomical. I have traded away Mike in every fantasy league since he was a rookie, because of the price tag associated with his talent. I know GMs wouldn’t be as stupid as my friends dealing Stanton, Kershaw and a top rated reliever for the 5 star player, but the return would be amazing anyways. This could boost the franchise in the future rather than wasting the best talent I have ever seen in person.
Mike Trout as a guy is a top notch citizen, but I would love to see more of him. He prefers to speak softly and carry his own stick, but he needs to have the swagger Bryce Harper. His talent alone has made him a star, but if he was able to be little more cocky, he would be a superstar and on the cover of every magazine everywhere.
We all know the Angles will never trade him, even though they should, and we know he will always be humble and never act like Harper, but we can dream right?
