Gameday Thread: Rangers @ Angels (5/25/22): Detmers on the mound, still no Ward
Through 43 team games and 38 games played, Trout is hitting .323/.434/.699 with 12 HR, a 225 wRC+ and 2.9 fWAR. How does that compare to previous years?
Here's how Trout looked through 43 team games, from 2012-22:
2012 (May 21): 21 G, .350/.413/.600, 4 HR, 178 wRC+, 1.5 WAR (31st, not qualified); Rest of Season WAR: 8.6
2013 (May 18): 43 G, .285/.370/.529, 8 HR, 152 wRC+, 2.2 WAR (14th); ROS WAR: 8.0
2014 (May 18): 43 G, .263/.360/.515, 8 HR, 150 wRC+, 1.9 WAR (10th); ROS WAR: 6.4
2015 (May 23): 43 G, .302/.395/.553, 11 HR, 158 wRC+, 2.3 WAR (3rd); ROS WAR: 7.0
2016 (May 21): 43 G, .321/.410/.568, 10 HR, 164 wRC+, 2.2 WAR (5th); ROS WAR: 6.4
2017 (May 17): 37 G, .341/.451/.742, 13 HR, 206 wRC+, 2.6 WAR (1st); ROS WAR: 3.8 (injured)
2018 (May 16): 43 G, .298/.440/.616, 12 HR, 183 wRC+, 2.9 WAR (2nd); ROS WAR: 6.6
2019 (May 15): 40 G, .278/.449/.541, 9 HR, 157 wRC+, 2.0 WAR (7th); ROS WAR: 6.3
2020 (Sept 8): 38 G, .301/.398/.671, 15 HR, 177 wRC+, 2.2 WAR (6th); ROS WAR: 0.4
2021 (May 19): 36 G, .333/.466/.624, 8 HR, 190 wRC+, 2.2 WAR (1st); ROS WAR: 0.0
2022 (May 23): 38 G, .323/.434/.699, 12 HR, 225 wRC+, 2.9 WAR (3rd)
Like a lot of other people, I kind of laughed it off and ignored Perry Minasian's comments about clubhouse chemistry, makeup, etc. but this Noah Syndergaard post-game quote stood out tonight:
"We all mesh really well. And Perry — I don’t know what kind of formula he has — but everybody in this clubhouse, we’re all pulling for another, we’re all rooting [for another], we’re all trying to make each other better. So it’s a lot of fun and it’s just a really awesome thing to be a part of."
AA preached that same clubhouse chemistry and makeup stuff in Atlanta when Perry was there, and Perry has always spoken about being in the clubhouse growing up and seeing it make an impact. To add on, I just saw Twins players discussing the same thing impacting their own club this season compared to last season.
So it's not quantifiable, but I'm starting to buy into this idea/concept/theory.

Of all of Nolan Ryan's achievements, few garnered more attention than the 20-second skirmish between Ryan and veteran third baseman Robin Ventura in 1993. The fight has come to symbolize his Texas toughness, and it made Ryan a symbol of middle-age defiance.
Much has been made about the "Ventura Fight" but most don't realize its roots started three years earlier in Florida.
In the 1990s, Chicago's Craig Grebeck was one of baseball's smallest everyday players. Just 5'7", he compensated for his lack of stature with the attitude of Goliath.
