Angels Official Website: Inbox: Will Trout get enough PAs to qualify?


Recommended Posts

It actually won't affect MVP consideration because that award is not under the control of MLB, it is the Baseball Writers Association of America and they have latitude in regards to what they can consider a full season. They are not bound by the same rules MLB uses to hand out awards like the batting title which uses plate appearances. 

Just like Hall of Fame induction in Cooperstown, it is affiliated with but not governed by MLB.

Gwynn won in 96 with only 497 plate appearances

If you're short, they count each missing plate appearance as an out. Gwynn actually had 498. Give Gwynn the 4 outs to make it to 502 and his average drops from .353 to .349. However,  he still beat Ellis Burks' .344.

Angels have to get the 2nd wild card or it's all for not.  

Trout gonna need to keep his eye popping slash line near the same and he's gonna need Altuve to sort of dip a bit as well IMO. I don't think simply getting the WC will give him the edge if Altuve continues to hit .360 or so on what will likely be a 100 win team

agreed.  I think it will take a batting title along with the WC win.  Trout will hit a walk off hr vs. seattle the last game of the season to win a playoff spot and knock seattle out.  That hr will also propel him to the batting title by half a %.  We will beat the yanks in a one game playoff, sweep boston in the div series, beat cleveland in a 7 game series that will be epic beyond imagination and then beat the dogs in a 7 game series that will go down as one of the greatest of all time.   In the off season, Albert will announce that he will retire after the 2018 season and we will extend Trout to an 11 year 400 mil deal.  

and then I woke up.

If you're looking for a standard, George Brett had a OPS +203 and 9.4 BWAR in 117 games and 515 PA's in 1980. Of course, the Royals also went to the WS that year....

George Brett hit .390 that year and was hitting .400 after game 148. He also drove in 118 runs in 117 games. He hit .469 with runners in scoring position! If anybody comes anywhere near those numbers this season, or probably any season, they'll win the MVP.

Brett was hitting .247 after an 0-6 on May 21. He proceeded to hit .464 until August 26th when he went 5-5 and finished the day batting .407. He missed hitting .400 by 5 hits.

and then Scioscia will get his extension
