    I’ve said before, the almighty trio of “Ruth, Aaron, and Mays” will one day become “Ruth, Aaron, Mays, and Trout”...

    I think most of you are forgetting that a lot of Betts value is based on his legs ( speed). Once that goes his value will drop a lot. Legs are always the first thing to go and usually go around 30.

    although harper did have a pretty meager 2018 and still got well over $300MM...so theres that.....
    Harper got that deal cause the Phillies were desperate and overpaid for him. I'd rather not pay Betts over 300 MIl because of the Phillies stupidity

    Betts value is from his bat speed.

    And Rickey Henderson stole 535 bases after his 30th birthday...

    If Cobb wasn't such an asshole, he'd be listed too.

    Trout already has a higher JAWS score than Joe DiMaggio.

    How many did he steal before?
    Just proving my point. Even the greatest base runners lose speed once they hit 30

    it's funny. there is more and more info coming out that Ty Cobb actually was a nice guy. one reporter had a beef with him for whatever reason and Cobb's legacy is forever tarnished.
    that said, i agree with your other point. in fact i am close to saying Trout is the GOAT as of now. but realize he needs a few more seasons to make it official.....

    Correct.

    That was right after Benintendi was ejected and the OF was Travis-Betts-Holt...

    Don't let a little thing like the facts get in the way of an opportunity to bash Mookie.
    It's a mere moment in a man's life between the All-Star game and the Old Timer's game.

    Per A700, Mookie didn't even move to backup that play or make an attempt to retrieve the ball. This wasn't shown on tv.

    Of course he was racist. He was born in Georgia in 1886 and was no doubt raised on all manner of racist things. it's possible he realized his error after he retired, but I seriously doubt he was a nice guy during his playing days. I'd put him in the top 5 of hitters/fielders.

    Still too early to anoint Trout, but he has been astonishingly consistent at a high level.

    My GOAT has always been Willie Mays because he was a bonafide five tool player and a great centerfielder with 660 dingers--and served in the Army.
