Mike Trout has been the best player in baseball since his rookie year. He has won two MVPs, probably should have won more and was never lower than the fourth in the MVP voting. He never missed an all-star game. He has had four seasons with 8 bWAR or more since 201
It's the natural order of sports that makes players better when they go from their early 20's to their late 20's, but it was natural to think he was already playing on his blanket. There did not seem to be many ways he could get better. And yet, he still gets better somehow.
Mike Trout posts career play against Yankees
For the first time in his career, Trout posted a 5-goal game as well as four additional base hits at Yankee Stadium in a 11-4 Angels win. It's rather surprising that Trout never scored five goals in one game as 107 other players made it through his career, but that's not true anymore.
Trout opened the game with an RBI double in the first inning, then added a third inning, married in the fourth inning, added a double in the sixth inning, and then dropped a single infield in the seventh inning, only his Show speed.
Mike Trout Vs. Yankees tonight:
109.4 mph double
97.9 mph double
106.8 mph home run
111.2 mph double
It's his first career game with four extra-base hits.

Mike Trouts season so far
This Homer also banded Trout for the MLB Home Run lead on 17 Homer's, tied up with Mookie Betts the Red Sox , If both players hit careers on Homers, the Homer race could reflect the AL MVP race.
Trout is now on pace for 53 homers, 140 runs, a .461 on-base percentage and a .687 slugging percentage. All points would represent a new career height.
As if that was not enough to improve, Trout went straight beat 7-for-34 against Yankees starter Sonny Gray, who had seen Trout plenty of his time looking up the track and field. Two doubles and a homer later, one could say Trouts numbers vs. Gray have jumped a bit.

It is certain that the fans got their money's worth on Saturday at Yankee Stadium, although the home team was handled by Trout.
