Boswell is really annoying when he puts on his Nationals fanboy hat.
“You know what’s pushing Harper,” said Johnson, who was third for rookie of the year in 1966, then improved the next season. “Mike Trout.”
Trout’s magnificent 2012 season has been mislabeled as “one of the greatest of all time.” It isn’t. He doesn’t even beat A-Rod, Ott or Williams for best season at 20. Most of the best hitters had a half-dozen seasons that were equal to or better than Trout. (We’ll argue later.)
No. 1 overall draft picks taken out of high school that played power positions? Since the 1977 draft, here is the list of just successes: Harold Baines, Darryl Strawberry, Griffey, Chipper Jones, A-Rod, Josh Hamilton, Adrian Gonzalez and Joe Mauer (three batting titles by 27).
