6-8 weeks. The one season I have him and I've got him in all three leagues.  Time to figure out how early is too early to start making trades for next season.

Left the game with a strained calf.  Everyone takes a deep breath and holds it until the MRI results.

Four more true outcomes for Trout as he goes 0-for-2.

With his numbers in free fall, he's getting the day off today.

In another three true outcome day, his batting average drops to .376.

I notice ... every day!  (And that's the point!)

I've got a friend down in San Diego begging me to come visit and we'll spring for whatever it takes to get tix to see this guy live and in person ... special!

.426/.539/.820 ... I'd call it "unbelievable" ... but for Trout, it's very believable :-)

He returned from being hit on the elbow to go 4-5 yesterday. He's close to passing Mercedes in BAvg, but he's so far ahead in OBP and SLG that there really is no one else within shouting distance. Could this be the year Trout finally ascends? I'm just kidding. He's been the best player in baseball his entire career. If he puts up a ridiculous, Bonds/Ruth/Williams-type season, I doubt anyone would even notice.

Best home run call I've heard in a while: It is ... TROUT o' here!

PS. I'm hoping he continues to NOT steal bases ... makes it more likely he'll play 162 games ... and in the post-season :-)

I'm now heavily invested in Trout.

I went in with some of the worst keepers, at least in terms of savings. But, that didn't stop me from paying for quality. I really didn't know what I was going to do other than to have a big offense. I was considering a $9 pitching staff, grabbing injured pitchers who will be back later this year, or just buying players who fell into my range. Ultimately, my offense dictated the pitching. I got Trout with one of the first few announcements for $50. Jose Ramirez subsequently went $52 and Merrifield $51 so I felt really good about Trout. No one else broke $40. I got Altuve for $32 and by the time I got Luis Arraez after a long pause, one owner running a projection system joked I had a .315 team average. It might have been true. My keepers included Bogaerts and Tim Anderson.  I couldn't do the $9 pithing staff because there were too many soft spots and I got angry letting a couple pithing deals go by. It's rebuilding year, so having Trout and likely training him for a keeper later isn't so bad. One team paid $11 for Sale and $13 for Severino, so the injured pitcher route was not the direction I could go either. There were some weird communications issues and I wound up getting an OF as my 1B, because someone said 1B/OF and nobody checked.  Keepers are in CAPS.

I need a lot of luck to compete this year. First, I need to find a corner to replace Panik. And, I need all of my medium SB guys to steal a few extra. If so, I could be in contention to win every hitting category. I need my pitchers to not have the worst ERA in the league. I might have a shot at Ks and Wins, but if my ERA and Ratio are middle of the pack, I have a shot. That's a lot of ifs.  But, I love my reserve draft, which if it works puts me in a great spot of the long-term future.

The first player nominated in today's AL Tout War. 

Bought by... Mike Gianella, whose big-ticket item in CBS was Teoscar Hernandez for $24.

Interesting change of strategy. 

Trout, of course, is a bigger catch in OBP leagues.
