At just 17 years old his scout believed he was going to be a HOFer, saying he is a combination of Mickey Mantle and Rickey Henderson, BUT BETTER than both. He is already and by all accounts according to WAR, the GOAT! Trout has been in serious company in WAR stats, but it's starting to get real. In the past week or so he has passed HOFer's Jim Palmer, Carl Hubbell, Ryne Sandberg, Fred Clarke, Ernie Banks, Edgar Martinez, and Roberto Alomar! Men who spent their entire career earning rights to the HOF. Trout 27, is just in his 8th full season!! He should pass the likes of Al Simmons, Ivan Rodriquez, Eddie Murray, and Tony Gwynn very soon! He is currently tied with Carlton Fisk at 68.5 WAR.
