You're kind of shooting yourself in the foot here. Just don't open the thread if you don't want to see people gushing about Trout's big days.
They're almost all big days. That's my point. We get it now. The guy is a beast.
It's difficult to criticize the excited, though. Guys are getting first round production out of a guy they took a late round flyer on, or better yet, plucked off of Free Agency. Not in deep keeper/dynasty formats, but in standard leagues. The guy has been the best player in the league for the last three months, and hasn't shown a single sign of slowing down. We don't see excitement like this for Pujols, Braun, etc. because a) we've come to expect it, and b) we spent a pick on them that necessitates them playing at that level to earn their value. With Trout, neither is the case. It's been a non-stop waiting game for him to cool off even a slight bit, and he hasn't even taken a step in that direction. It's unbelievable. There's no other analysis to be done at this point. We don't have a big enough sample. There's no sense in getting bent out of shape over it. It kind of is what it is for now. We won't have any worthwhile forward moving conversation on Trout until he slumps or over the off-season when we speculate what he'll do in 2013. Let those who are reaping the benefits now, though (I wish I was one of them) enjoy the ride.
