    Ummmm it is .. Angels play in what 80+ degree weather all year in LA? While Detroit was hitting almost 50 against the yankee series .. You tell me who would rather hit in 50 degree weather or 80 ... Why do you think yankee stadium in the summer is a bandbox more than anything ... 90 degree weather which means the ball travels more.. Its science

    Also in interviews of many pitchers they were asked who is the scariest hitter they've faced .. Most said ichiro in his prime and others said miggy .. Trouts name was barely mentioned

    Thanks for the correction. That being said....Angels still underperformed. Tigers made it to the post season and were AL central champs largely due to Miggy.

    Only thing Trout has a big lineup to help him for the next 6 years. Harper still needs a little help with that.
    Harper's hair-do isn't queer, it is just totally Kenny Powers. He knows what he is doing. That being said if i saw some non-baseball superstar with that hair cut on the streets, I would punch him in the face.

    Trout played one year. Dimensions play a much larger factor since most of the games are played during the summer.

    Had respect for Archie until these 2 horrible comparisons. Looks like someone hacked onto his name almost.

    Had an awesome in-person encounter with Mike Trout at last Wednesdays game. Will have to make a thread about it later.

    I'm a big fan.

    Trout much better but will never go down a winner

    Harper plays with better hurlers so they always have a chance
