#1 overall pick? Can he duplicate or even improve on his 2012 rookie season?

I'm pretty confident that if given the opportunity in 3 months or so, I'd take Braun over Trout. I think they have comparable upsides but Braun's floor is higher. I would take Miggy over Trout as well.

after Braun and Miggy, I'm on board. there are a lot of question marks with the rest of the pack. I think Kemp should be up there. never like guys with hammy injuries, but prior to that injury Kemp was looking like the best hitter in baseball and it wasn't close. now he's actually got a real lineup around him and the Dodgers will probably throw some more money at some FAs to bolster the offense around Kemp.

I will never draft Francisco Liriano ever again.

I have him in a keeper, but I'd probably grab him 2nd overall in a redraft behind Ryan Braun. I agree that Braun is more of a sure bet, I want Trout to be the best in the game so bad but I just don't think he is quite yet. I hope he uses the fact that he didn't get MVP as motivation to do what he did last year but better hahaha...

Here is most runs scored in single season:


Runs scored
Player Team Runs Season   
  Babe Ruth New York Yankees 177 1921   
  Lou Gehrig New York Yankees 167 1936   
  Lou Gehrig New York Yankees 163 1931

Who thinks Trout will be there this season with Pujols&Hamilton behind him?

Could be a pretty special year with Pujols, Hamilton, Trumbo, and Morales all behind him in that lineup. Wow. Kudos to the Angels.

That's a great lineup. I really love trout even more this year, and I don't think pujols will get off to that slow start like he did last year.

Obviously, I love the Angels getting Hamilton and how that impacts Trout's runs potential. If everything breaks right for him, 150 is certainly doable.
Do you really care who is on my team? I have Mike Trout and Arian Foster in keeper leagues in their respective sports.

I'd go Braun first, then Trout. But Trout would be tempting. Does sophomore slump apply to baseball?

Yes. Just look at Eric Hosmer. However it doesn't apply to superhumans. Trout is immortal to it.

Hosmer, yea, wow. No need to say more. Thanks, BB.

I don't see Trout slowing down next year either. Given who he has hitting behind him.

So would a "sophomore slump" for Trout be something along the lines of 16 HRs, 30 steals, 90 runs, .280 BA?  I'll take those numbers for a "slump".

That would be a sophomore disaster, but scarily enough that's still respectable if he does that. I just can't see Trout slumping to the point where he's not a top 3 player on pretty much every roster he's on.

Now I'm going to ask the newbie question but it could be enlightening to those who may fear questioning the faith.

Now we know that Trout was amazingly spectacular last year. But can someone explain beyond gut check feelings why it seems so impossible for Trout, barring injury, is going to have a "bad" year?  I mean, we've seen hot players have bad years. Wright is a perfect example. This guy has been up for one full year. What makes him such a lock pick as potentially the best pick in the year?

Mainly because of the speed he has. Even if his bat is cold, he can still get on base and steal a base or two to be valuable. When he is hot, he gets you homers/rbi's/runs, when he is cold, he still gets you steals.
