So much for stealing bases (Troutrage)

Recommended Posts

Really though, the only way Trout steals more bases is if:


1. We have another Pujols type hitting behind Pujols

2. Mike Trout is moved to the leadoff spot. 

3. He doesn't give a shit about the signs Scioscia lays down and runs on his own. 


1.  There is no other "Pujols" type available at this time.

2.  It's not worth the move to lead off just so he can steal more bases, plus he strikes out too much.

3.  This won't happen, are you kidding?

Trout hasn't stolen a base in over a month, since May 22, and is stuck at 8 SB through 73 games played. Last year at this point he had...9 SB.




There is a higher WAR value in hitting home runs than stealing bases. He tried winning an MVP with his feet, found it was easier hitting the long ball. One home run is probably worth 4 stolen bases in BBWA stats so he was working way too hard his rookie and 2nd season.


What I am saying is Trout is lazy.
