Mike Trout

Mike Trout left yesterday’s Angels-Astros game with a tight hamstring. As easily the best player on the Angels this year that’s trouble, but apparently not serious trouble: He’s day-to-day and downplayed the severity of the injury.

Trout is hitting .333/.430/.574 with 21 homers and 28 stolen bases on the year.

    But what will this do to his MVP chances?

      Well, it lowers his grit and WtW factors. Miggy’s playing hurt. MVP!

      I played soccer for 10 yrs & never had hamstring issues but my teammates that used ped’s would always have hammy issues. Trout has a huge head & looks like Barry Bonds when he was at his best, No doubt Trout is at least using synthetic testosterone which mlb does not test for.

    Boy your screen name says it all Dick. Mike Trout is the best all around ballplayer in the game. ” Au Natural ” Its comments like yours Dick that are just thrown out there to get a reaction with no facts whatsoever. Trout has been that good even back to his little league days. What you are witnessing is probably the best ever. we will see in 15 yrs or so. Im 54 and he is the best all around I have ever seen. And he just turned 22. Lets see his #s after he bats 3rd in the line up for a whole year especially if Pujols or Hamilton have a decent yr hitting behind him. Triple crown ? MVP? Time will tell. PEDS not a chance. He is the chosen one.
