I don't see why he won't hit right around 30, with 20-25 SBs, making him well worthy of a first round pick. I'm not sure he can keep pace with CarGo and McCutchen, but he's probably that kind of player this year.
Better question would be, would you rather have Harper or Trout for the rest of the season? I don't think it's a silly question at this point.
Yes it is.
This is 3 games into the season.
Harper caught fire quick.
There's still 155+ games to go.
It isn't a silly question but mostly because there are significant reasons to think Trout will be a major bust as a top 3 pick. It won't surprise me even a tiny bit if Harper out produces Trout this year. Won't surprise me if Cano out produces both of them, or Votto, or Kemp or McCutchen, or Cargo or Tulo or even Dustin Pedrioa or Justin Upton etc.
Edit: It also won't surprise me if he is the #1 player either, didn't mean to make that sound so negative. There are just a really wide range of results.
