And I'm just going to say this because I know none of you stay up late enough to see it for yourselves:

Mike Trout>Bryce Harper

I'm referring to all 5 tools, plus he's better looking and has better hair.

haven't seen it first hand.  can't argue with the stats.  decent article on grantland today comparing there career paths to this point (tl;dr trout wasn't doing what harper was doing at the same age).

You mean going to high school?

I didn't see an article comparing the two.  All I saw was the piece on Harper.

One other thing: Trout is not represented by Scott Boras.  Have fun!

right now he's not, but just wait!  being lifelong sox fan... there aren't many people that make me cringe more than scott boras.

it's just a peice on harper, but it compares him and trout indirectly.

trout was called up last year, and didn't excel (limited time, i know).  historically speaking, HOF-to be rookies like Arod, KGJr, etc. have had respectable first years but nothing eye-popping like Harper's thus far.  Trout has had the luxury of gaining some experience in the big leagues, where Harper has not; and the stats tend to suggest that's a huge deal.

We'll see what Harper is doing when he's 20 too ;)

Stras on the mound tonight? I hope he smokes the Jays.

Isn't Harper batting 300?

I think he's exceeding expectations so far

And i had not realized he was as quick as he is...

So you're basically saying that rather than being the next A-rod, Harper is the next Fred Lynn?

trout wasn't doing what harper was doing at the same age.

Granted, Trout is ripping it up for a 20 year old and comparing them today they're pretty much dead even.  Trout does have the edge by a good amount in AVG .345 vs. .307 and has more stolen bases (15 vs. 4).  Everything else is for the most part the same thus far this season.

That being said, Harper just played his 40th game in the majors and comparing his first 40 games in the majors to Trouts debut season in the majors (last year, and coincidentally 40 games while he was 19), there's no comparison.

Trout went .220/.281/.390 over his first 40
Harper went .307/.390/.553 over his first 40

All that is true, but at least Trout is not a Mormon. Plus, he's better looking.

Ha, if I were a stud baseball player at 19, I'd be down with polygamy as well, can't say I blame him.

As far as the looking better.. Smackie said the same thing.  What pictures are you guys finding to make this claim?  Granted, Bryce has a douchey 19-year old beard in a lot of photos, but Trout looks like a pastey doughboy in every photo that just popped up when I googled him.  It's a wash at best.


I don't follow much national media, but is Trout vs. Harper a big debate outside of this message board?  I really hope not as I'm assuming that will quickly lead into the ever-so-tired east coast bias rantings that everyone (i would hope) is tired of.
