MIKE TROUT, OF, L.A. AN­GELS Ac­cord­ing to FanGraphs’ Wins Above Re­place­ment (WAR) num­bers, Mike Trout has had a bet­ter ca­reer than any player through his age-23 sea­son in base­ball his­tory, and, ac­cord­ing to the web­site, it’s the 10th-best four-year peak of any player in his­tory. WAR also rates Trout as the best player in the AL in each of his first four years, and the best in base­ball the first three. His stolen base to­tals have sharply de­clined from 49 to 11 in four sea­sons, but other than that, what’s not to like?
