Trout has one of the best half seasons in MLB rookie history and suddenly he's the #1 pick over a guy who's realistically been one of the best hitters in baseball since he came into the majors? Sorry. You can pick anyone else and I'll take MCab 10 times out of 10. Just wait until he wins the triple crown.
Cabrera can win the triple crown and still have 50-60 less stolen bases than Trout while Trout is no slouch in any other category. Trout has 13 more runs, 8 less homers, 31 less RBI, 32 more steals, and is batting 22 points higher than Mcab and Trout didnt have an April... I just dont think there has ever been another player like him.
I dont think anyone here would be shocked at all if Trout was the #1 overall player next year, and that makes him NOT a crazy #1 draft pick.
I understand that most would take the much more proven Mcab, but when it comes to upside, Trout stands alone.
