Harper isn't a much better hitter.

It's been done four times. I'll write it again...four times. Fenway is really old btw.

The fact it's easy to hit the ball out and it's only been done four times is astounding in itself, but from an oddity standpoint. I guess you'd have to look at every 19 year old that's been in Fenway. I mean if it's like 5 guys then yeah it's not that odd.

Yes, he is. His approach at the plate and ability to make adjustments from at bat to at bat are far more impressive than Trout's approach at the plate. Trout a table-setter.

Ignore the god damn grammar. I hate the auto-correct on the iPhone.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

You need a table setter for an offense to work though. If his adjustments are better, why has he struggled more? I'm sure he's a great hitter in the making, and I do need to see more from him, but I can't imagine him being better than Trout right now. Like at all. The few times I saw him, he's not close to Trout's level of play.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

He's not really struggling persay. .290, 6 HRs, and 18 of his 40 hits have been extra base hits in 36 games played as a 19 year old is spectacular. What sucks for Bryce is that the Nationals offense is anemic.

Both are legit studs. I just see NL MVP in Harper. Don't know if I see Trout ever reaching that peak.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

It's not really fair to take a lead off hitter and a 2 or 3 hitter and say the 2 or 3 hitter is automatically better. A 2 or 3 hitter is only going to drive in runs if those table setters are on base. And they are going to drive in far more runs if guys like Trout are on base giving pitchers fits leading to them making mistakes.

Trout is already pretty damn good at what he does in the lead off spot. I would say as of now Trout is a better lead off hitter than Trout is a number 2 or 3 hitter and that's the fairest way to look at it.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

The copout answer is that you can't go wrong with either. Trouts OPS is over .900 and Harpers is right below .900 (which is considered great and all-star type production). Harper though I think will be more projected as a #3 hitter while Trout likely will be a leadoff due to his speed. If I had to take one, give me Harper, since great #3's > great #1's.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

As if Harper isn't good at the #3 spot, JM...

Dude's clutch with 2 walk off hits already. Agreed with PP. the Nats might have the future prototype that every team will desire. And let's not act like Harper doesn't have speed or can't play the outfield.

Your speaking as if there's only such things as better and sucks Flex. I'm not even going to comment as you've completely misconstrued.

Nah, man. I'm high on both guys. Both teams are extremely fortunate to have those two.
