You're reading this correct. Mike Trout is on pace for a 15.4 WAR season which would be the best ever by a position player.

Impressive, yes, but math fail. Not sure how you get 15.4, it’s exactly a third of the way through the season and he’s got 4.9 rWAR and 4.4 fWAR, so his pace is 14.7 or 13.2.

in other words, he sucks.

What's the worst thing that happens, if the following lineup is used for the next few weeks against RHP, when Ohtani isn't about to pitch?

Cozart, Simmons, Trout, Ohtani, Upton, Pujols, Kinsler, Cold, Machete

Pujols has had the 6th best OPS so far this season, basically the same OPS as 2017.   What is going to change soon?

I guess it's baby steps for Sosh, that Kinsler and Cold are no longer higher up in the order.

Well then the Angels media guide and STATS Inc. fails at MATH, not I.

More from STATS Inc. today...

YOU READ THAT RIGHT: Mike Trout is on pace for a 15.4 WAR season – would be the best ever by a position player.

FAST AND FAR: With two stolen bases May 20th, Mike Trout reached 175 for his career...One of six players to tally 200 HRs & 175 SBs in their first eight seasons joining Willie Mays, Barry/Bobby Bonds, Darryl Strawberry & Rafael Soriano)... Trout is the lone player to do prior to age-27 season.
