    Trout wont make the all-star game. His numbers say he will regress big time.
    Don't let this face fool you...

    Did you see his RBI totals? Not good enough. Thats why there are 10 better OFers than him, who can drive runs in. There are also peripheral numbers there that see regression, but I wont discuss that, because whenever I do, I get ban for being anti-Trout, so I'd rather just leave it alone altogether.

    I also don't think Sale has much chance at the AL CY. He is good, but I dont see him holding up.

    I am coincidenced he is a troll. No one is that ignorant. I mean, if I saw that post without his name, I would think it was Sexicano or something joking around.

    Yeah because he only had 104 innings in the minor leagues before he was called up, that's to be expected when a young starter is stretched out to the extent he was in his rookie season.

    Traditionally young pitchers are brought along slower to build durability but considering last year was the most innings he had ever pitched at the professional level, an ERA of 4.03 in the second half isn't particularly bad.

    You had to expect some regression from his dominant first half as well.

    Saying that, it shouldn't translate into this year.

    Do you think RBI are completely due to being a good hitter? Nothing to do with players in front of them?
