From The Cut on mlb.com: Mike Trout is already an all-time great at age 26


Recommended Posts

But really, why bother compare Trout to just any old Hall of Famers? At this point, he stacks up strictly with the very best of all time. Only two players accrued more WAR through their age-26 seasons than Trout: Ty Cobb (63.4) and Mickey Mantle (61.4). When Trout was a top prospect, the Mantle comparisons seemed reckless, if not downright irresponsible. Fast forward to today, and Mantle is the only comparison worth making.

We can no longer be surprised by Trout's shockingly realistic march towards G.O.A.T. status -- we can only appreciate and applaud it.

Considering Cobb and Mantle played against a lower level of competition Trout seems to clearly be on pace for the best player of all time/GOAT status. Easily the best player of all time through age-26 in my opinion.

I never knew Cobb was so consistently good at such a young age. What a badass.
