Trout isn't ready to lead

Rarely is the best player on the team the captain. Otherwise it would have been Alex Rodriguez as the captain of the Yankees.

Leadership isn't about great performance but how you act when it gets tough for you. Pujols has struggled for the past three seasons and yet set the ball in motion for an Angels comeback by shooting Rodney with an arrow, and Trout followed him along with the rest of the team for a win.

That was probably the turning point for this team in terms of knowing they were as good as their record and capable of being better. Leaders give the team confidence in themselves, not just post the best stats.

If the best player in baseball was ever declared captain of the team, Pujols would get butthurt. Scioscia is very much aware about how sensitive Albert can be.

I'm glad you've been able to spend enough time in the clubhouse to know this.
