Where you err is in calling it "hating." He was simply basing his opinion on what he projected from the stats he was looking at.
Mark made vast improvements at the plate. AG doubted he could. That's not hating on him.
It's possible that he's so good right now that he's eventually going to start getting fewer pitches to hit. That will probably lead to more walks.
I don't know, it's just a guess.
--AG doubted he could.--I don't know if doubted is the right word, I don't know if it's the wrong word either.
I liked his odds better than Wells, but I didn't like his odds. If the season started today and Trout cracked the lineup, I would have bet money that:Kendrick,Morales,Bourjos,Puljos, Trout Hunteralong with Calaspo or Ianettea, or Aybar, that Trumbo would rank around 7th.
It wasn't a crazy comment, it was just dead wrong.
You're an idiot.
I'm trying to apply logic. It doesn't mean I'm right.
"My prediction is:
Assuming 560 AB's, he'd need to hit .182 the rest of the way. That's worse than Hamilton in June.
