Ok I was wrong. I get it. No need for everyone in this thread to remind me.

I wonder if he'll get to 30 home runs this year and 50 stolen bases this year. Only players to hit 30 Homers and 50 Stolen Bases are Eric Davis in 1987 (37, 50) and Barry Bonds in 1990 (33, 52)

Zips projects him to slow down quite a bit and has him finishing at 29/50. There is a very real possibility he could do it despite missing 25-30 games and that's just kind of silly.

That would make him the first American Leaguer to ever do it. 8-o

As a non fantasy owner, I am green with envy. I can't imagine any keeper league right now in which Trout's owner is even entertaining potential trade offers. The guy in my league said he was untouchable a month and a half ago.


I have him at .10 and this is a $100 auction league. His value goes up $2 every season and i can keep him as long as i want. I was bouncing between 3rd and 6th place about 20pts behind the 2nd and 1st place team about 2 months ago. My pitching was terrible at the time and I was thinking of trading him for 2 maybe 3 solid pitchers to make a run. An offer that came to me was Trout and Lincecum for Cliff Lee and Kershaw, both Lee and Kershaw would have been ok keepers at about $8 a piece. I ended up turning it down and decided to have faith, not to mention keep Trout for the next 5 season. Im currently in 1st place and I hope my team holds on. My future looks pretty good as well with Trout as my Franchise player.

Remembering Eric Davis and how much injuries derailed his career just makes me sad. My favorite player in high school by far.

Eric Davis in his prime is probably the best comparison I can think of to Trout this season. I really have no idea what kind of power or steals numbers Trout will put up in the next three to five years, I see people saying he's a lock for 40 and should push 50 steals a season for awhile, and that his power looks to be legit enough to bank on at least 20. Davis stole 80 bases in 1986, at the age of 24. Trout seems to have that kind of potential, especially for a guy who could hit .300. I'm not expecting his numbers to improve right away but if anyone has a shot to be unique to a club it could be Trout with a 30/60 year and a possible .300 average to go with it.

And before anyone says it won't happen, hes got 160 MLB games under his belt now, and has 32 home runs and 61 steals. His K% rate of 23.8% make me a little less optimistic, but Davis struck out just as often with 25.2% k rate in his prime years (1986-1990). He's probably more of a .280 or .290 hitter assuming his power doesn't vanish, his speed will keep his average above most players who share his K% rate.
