Washington Post: For Angels' Mike Trout, no ceiling applies


Recommended Posts

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/nationals/for-angels-mike-trout-no-ceiling-applies/2013/06/17/6314bd08-d2cf-11e2-b3a2-3bf5eb37b9d0_story.html?hpid=z10

 

No major revelations or anything, but I still thought it was a good write-up.  Excerpt:

 

"And so, in a telephone conversation lasting maybe 15 minutes, Morhardt has invoked the names of Mickey Mantle, Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire in describing Mike Trout’s talent. When you call him on it, he doesn’t back down or apologize. And he adds another name.

 

“If he never gets injured seriously, and he plays out his career, he could be one of those Willie Mays-type guys,” Morhardt said. “People act crazy if you mention Mikey [in the same sentence] with the all-time greats. But he’s doing the same things, at the same age they did. He has that same beyond-his-years maturity. He just does.”

 

Morhardt hasn’t been wrong about Trout yet, and he more or less staked his career on the kid. So, again, what is Mike Trout’s ceiling? Is it Mays? Mantle? Bonds? At this point, it is perhaps best to forget about the ceiling altogether — to look beyond the ceiling, and out into the stars and the heavens."

i'd appreciate it if trout's name wasn't mentioned along with roid heads bonds and mc guire. trout is establishing his greatness without artificial help.

whether the drug use was legal or not, those players using that crap will pay for it through tendon and ligament injurys and destruction of thier hip joints at the very least (see lyle alzado).

Don't forget the emotional effects.
