    Since 2007 Trout leads all position players in WAR with 61.1. Miguel Cabrera is second with 55.9. Mike Trout was a sophomore in HS in 2007.

    Probably a combo of both. Few people are staying up to watch West coast games, and the Angels haven't made the playoffs so he hasn't played on the biggest stage yet. And Trout would probably be a meteorologist without baseball, that doesn't exactly have mass appeal.

    The difference in value between Trout and Lindor is pretty close to the difference between Lindor and Islegias. Trout is 4+ wins better than Lindor, Lindor is 4+ wins better than Iglesias. The point is it would be absurd to consider Lindor over Trout. I would love for the Tigers to develop somebody as good as Lindor, but he is not a generational talent, you could argue either Correa or Seager are better SS under 25. On the other hand, Trout is arguably the greatest player to ever step on a baseball field. He is two tiers ahead of everybody else.

    After hitting .236/.313/.412 last year, Kinsler is hitting .217/.284/.394 this year.

    There really is no debate. Trout had a higher WAR in 114 games last season than Lindor has ever had in his career. Lindor is hitting .288/.367/.533 for a 143 wRC+. Trout is hitting .328/.467/.676 for a 208 wRC+. Saying there is a debate between Trout and Lindor is like saying there is a debate between Lindor and Iglesias.

    Lindor is a stud, but if you factor in contracts, I'd rather have Ramirez. I really hope the Indians aren't able to sign Lindor long term though, he'll be a problem for sure. In a world without Mike Trout he could even be a future MVP.

    Trout is on pace to have arguably the greatest season ever. He is so far ahead of every other player in baseball it's just silly.

    Looks like Cameron and Faedo have been promoted to Double A.

    Zimmerman showed some promise to start the year, hopefully he can keep it up.

    Well apparently 18 of the top 20 from the DR tested positive for PEDs.

    Cabrera is a ground all machine this year, up to around a 55% GB rate.

    The minor leagues and metal bats really just kill college baseball.

    That speaks to the quality of our rotation more than it does Boyd.

    Those aren't advanced stats, and his WAR is 2.1 on baseball-reference, it's 1.1 on fangraphs. His advanced metrics and peripherals do not match up with his ERA. He looks more like a solid BOR guy than an ace. His ERA, WHIP, and H/9 are all based on a BABIP of .232, which is likely unsustainable.

    I'm sorry, but what advanced stats are you looking at that Boyd is in the top 10? He's outside the top 30 in WAR, FIP, xFIP, SIERA, and K:BB. His xFIP is actually in the bottom 10 for qualified pitchers.
