re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
Middlebrooks just recently got hot again. He hasn't been close to Trout's level of consistency. Middlebrooks will cool off again, while Trout will probably still be Trout.
Trout is far and away the rookie of the year. Can he even count as a rookie since he's played in the majors before this year?
As for Yu Darvish, just look at it as him pitching in the minors the past few years. He's a rookie, not used to MLB hitters. He has some control issues at times, but when he's on, yeah, he's pretty damn good. He needs to trust his stuff more I think. He might be wary of how good MLB hitters are so he dances around the zone seeing what he can and can't get away with. Or he's just off at times. It happens to the best of pitchers.
