If it's play money, then sure it's fun. If it's an investment, it's stupid as hell, for one thing he's 25 and his minor league history is not that impressive, for another thing he has been great only a few months and that doesn't necessarily predict anything in baseball.

I thought Trout was the new Mantle. Or is it Harper or...

Trout's better than Mantle. Harper isn't as good as Mantle, nor will Judge be.

Trout has been sensational his first few years. Harper has been inconsistent, but if (big if) he can stay healthy and tame his tendency to get impatient (which emerged again last year), I think long term he could be the equal of Trout. Judge, I remain skeptical.

Keep in mind Harper is only 24 and already has close to 150 HR.

For whatever reason Aaron Judge shows a road/home split that typically is only seen in Colorado players. He hits long home runs so it shouldn't be due to fence length. It appears he gets a charge from the home crowd.

2017 stats
Home:42 games: 151ab / 21hr / .377ba/ .489obp/ .834slg
Away:49 games: 176ab /9hr/ .256ba/.385obp/.483slg

This is worrisome enough that I wouldn't compare him to any greats. His home stats are crazy impressive, but those road stats show that he has some issues even if it is just his mental game.

Edit to add:
This trend also showed up in his limited 2016 run:
2016
Home: 16 games / 47ab / 3 hr/ .255ba/.340obp/.489slg
Away:11 games / 37ab/ 1 hr/ .081ba/.167obp/.162slg

i once believe this, but i don't think this is the case going forward. trout's all-around game is better, and i thought harper was the more offensively gifted player but trout makes crazy adjustments every year so i don't even think that's the case anymore.

i'm not going to comment on judge, let's see him finish one mlb season first and how he adjusts next year. trout is like lebron at this point, people keep trying to elevate players over him and the new flavor of the month (cabrera, harper, bryant, judge etc) but the king stays the king.

Aaron Judge has had an outstanding first HALF of ONE season...nothing more.

All this has been seen before...many times to varying degrees.

MLB stardom is not achieved without a lot of adjustments by both hitter and the pitchers he faces.

As of this date, the pitchers have the edge since the All-Star break. The ball is now in Judge's court...no pun intended.

Maybe Clint Frazier will wind up being even better than Judge...only time will tell.

Neither have reached the Bryce Harper level much less the Mike Trout level.

Time will tell.


But, NOBODY will have the impact on the hobby that Mantle did and still has.
