Of course he is!
You don't have to have become a legend to be considered the best at a particular point in time.

I like that you don't automatically assume he'll keep up the same numbers next season as he did in 2012. It shows common sense and a tendency NOT to take anything for granted, nor are you insisting as some do here that he will always be the same Mike Trout year after year.
Good for you! I admire that a lot. Not that THAT is important. LOL!
It's just not in me personally to make predictions about any player, no matter how great a season he's just had.
