Jorge Polanco with 2019's first cycle. Have to love the utter mad randomness of baseball.

Meanwhile, @B-Dawg ; your team is far better than mine these days... And this relief pitcher is unfair. Should be investigated by MLB.





There is no one on this Giants team who could hit this dude.

With 14 errors committed in 10 games.

However...

They have scored 73 runs.

The Giants, if you count today's 6 (in 7 innings thus far), have scored 25.

Yeah, the Mariners have a pretty good offense. That or the ChiSox pitching is just ass. Probably a bit of both.

There's a part of me that consistently wants to semi adopt the Angels as a team just to watch Trout, but I don't know if I can handle trying to watch a 3rd team .

Bellinger has been insane and Trout has been better. Yelich is amazing but Trout is twice as good so far. Trout even robbed Yelich of a HR

That was a pretty awesome moment, on the off season I adopted the Brewers as my NL team so I could have a foot in both leagues, so I've been very excited for this series. Thankfully the Sox game is early today so I can watch both

Mike Trout doing Mike Trout things.

I always have a weird sense that we don't appreciate just how unbelievably good he is, even when everybody knows he is the best player in the game.

He is phenomenal. Someone should be grabbing him for a "Redefining What It Means to Want to 'Be Like Mike'" advertising campaign. Obviously he has many endorsement deals but he is fast becoming to this sport what Michael Jordan was for basketball. It is just that the two sports are in a number of ways incomparable to one another, and one can create a potent NBA team with a pair of superstars whereas in baseball stacked teams underperform more regularly or when you only have one unstoppable beast like Trout, he only has so many opportunities to make his presence in an Angels game felt. Whereas Steph Curry in basketball has the ball in his hands frequently when he is on the court. Curry missing five shots in a row is no huge deal because he will have a large number of opportunities; Trout going 0-5 in a game means his offensive chances are kaput for the day (which is, again, why one cannot compare an MLB plate appearance to an NBA field goal attempt; one of the former is like five-nine of the latter).

Just some random written-version-of-spewing thoughts concerning how Trout should be better- and more widely-appreciated. This is Maysian talent we are all seeing--as in Willie Mays. Time for it to be more properly and massively acknowledged.

Re: MLB: Guess who hit the first cycle of 2019...that's right the great Jorge Polanco

Guys, Trout's zone contact is fucking 96.2% right now. It's early and this is a small sample, but that's hilarious.

For comparison, one of the best contact hitters of the last few years aka Jose Altuve, hit 96% zone contact back in 2011. He's been consistently above 90% for most of his seasons. Altuve has ok power, but he doesn't have Trout's power.

Again it's early/small sample, but if Trout is upping his contact, we're looking at next level Mike Trout. He made 90% zone contact last season.
