He's not. Mariners are 54-63 and Trout and Donaldson have equal or better numbers on winning teams. Don't understand why you can't grasp that concept.

So it's not MVP worthy?

Nope. The other two are the best all around players in the game. Cruz is a slugger on a losing team that can't field. Still don't understand why this is hard to grasp. Maybe Cruz would have a chance if he was far and away better than everyone else, but he isn't.

If it was offense only, sure.

How you gonna win MVP when your team sucks and your glove sucks?

Trout isn't having a good season defensively this year

Runners in scoring position on Sale? K's the potential ROY.


Bases loaded? K's to end the inning.

Tell me about Trouts great defensive season. The advanced stats you slurp have him as below average laugh.gif

4 Defensive Runs Saved to Cruz's -7
-2.2 UZR/150 to Cruz's -19.8
72 plays made out of zone to Cruz's 40
5 assists and 0 errors to Cruz's 5 assists and 3 errors
310 put outs to Cruz's 129
1.000 Fielding percentage to Cruz's .978

I just don't know why I even waste my time. Trout may not be Kevin Kiermaier in center but he's 10 times the outfielder Cruz is.

You definitely don't wanna get into advanced stats in this argument my dude, Trout still leads the league in WAR while Cruz is 15th.

Even his average defense is better than Cruz so that's a pretty stupid angle as well.
post #45551 of 77552
Put it this way, take Cruz off the Mariners they're still a terrible team. Take Trout off the Angels and they go from playoff team to 10 games under. I don't understand why it's hard to grasp that Trout is more valuable in every aspect of baseball than Cruz.

Parnell deserves to be DFA'd after this game. No time for ******** like this in a pennant race. 2 games this series he lost.
post #45555 of 77552
Our bullpen is terrible except Clippard and Familia.

We have no lefty reliever. Can Pedro Feliciano pitch?

We could use Duaner Sanchez. laugh.gif

Gillmartin is ok but he's no specialist. O'Flaherty meh. Losing Blevins really hurts.

Robles has very good stuff but he's still learning how to pitch. We need to add another reliever.
post #45557 of 77552
I like Robles. He's young and has lack of experience.

You know you suck when Ike Davis is your best relief pitcher
post #45561 of 77552

Any pitcher to win just one game? 

 

I'm still taking Bum *shrug*

 

Sale 1B though. Ain't no way I'm taking Peyton Kershaw to win a big game until he proves otherwise :lol I do think he's still the best in the league though.

Stanton was comical early in the year, dude could hit a medicine ball 400 feet.


He accounted for 30% of the Marlins offense. laugh.gif

Nats tagged him for 6 earned last time they faced him. 99% chance he throws a shutout today. Probably a no-hitter.
