It isn't that likely Trout steals 80 just because of the way the game as evolved. They won't wanting him running free with the injury risk. It is a lot easier to steal 80 when you are mediocre outside of your legs than when you are a legit good all around player.

You're right it's not likely, I'm just saying the potential is there due to certain factors. Davis stole 80 in his first full season then 50 the next year, then never had more than 35. Trout has Davis' speed and both possess very good base running instincts, rarely getting caught. Trout should get on base at a slightly higher clip and will bat leadoff, and assuming he can put together a full season or two without missing 30 games every year like Davis did, I think the possibility of him stealing 70-80 bases is a reality, even if it isn't expected. Because he is so young and the speed will be there for awhile his value is going to be through the roof for the next few seasons. It's going to be interesting to see how he follows up this year and what we come to expect from him going into 2014.

Yeah it won't surprise me if he is like a .260 hitter next year with only 20 HR power. I don't expect it but I won't be shocked at all by it either. But I expect him to have that 30+ SB in his back pocket no matter what which really minimizes the risk with drafting him early. The floor just isn't all that low because the SB will be there.

Still have him in my keeper, but couldn't pull the trigger on him in my redraft league (auction draft).

Any bold predictions on him for this year?
