  • By fWAR, he only needs half of one to break into the top 100 position players of all time.
  • At this year's pace, he'll be the all team leader in fWAR through age 28... By the end of next year's age 27 season.

Evan Gattis was last week's player of the week...

Mike Trout last week: .684/.750/1.368 line, 438 wRC+ and 1.3 fWAR

Ok... sure.

I wonder how many position players have ever accumulated more WAR in a week than the number of games the team won.

Is it just me or does Trout look out of place on the Angels?

Watching the game, the announcers talk about how he's one of the all-time greats, and a sure lock for the HOF.

Seems like a cruel joke that such talent is wasted on the Angels.

A comment from an article on Trout's greatness.

What Trout has been doing ever since he came to the majors is just lucky. I predict that in as soon as ten or fifteen years, he will come back down to earth. Let's go ahead and shorten his name right now to Mi-T (mighty) and be done with it.

The Mike Troutest thing ever is that he's on pace to have the single greatest season in MLB history and hasn't won American League Player of the Week once this year. Or last year. Or in 2016, either. Last time he won: July 12, 2015. He's just that good every week.

They should change the award to AL Player of the Week (Other than Trout).

Anyone find it a little odd that catcher's interference is an error and no plate appearance, but being hit by a pitch is counted as a plate appearance and time on base? With the error, I guess they are making sure the pitcher isn't punished for the catcher's mistake. Still kinda weird.that they give batters credit for HBP.

The hit or error segment on MLB Now is interesting.
