Trout has simply decided to be good at Minute Maid now


DividerOfBums

Amazing!


SJ_Shark_Byte

First there was Trout Mobile Park, now get ready for Minute Mike Park


WadeCountyClutch

He probably got tired of being good at T-Mobile park


endxo_999

OPS back over 1.000


Lebigmacca

Everything is right in the world again


BoyWithHorns

I learned this year how much my spiritual well-being is tied to the performance of this man.


RiggityRyne

Your spiritual well-being must be nice then.


BoyWithHorns

As of today I am back over 1.000.


youreallonsteroids

SWB new stat


damnatio_memoriae

what's that -- one whole spirit?


BoyWithHorns

One above replacement.


nhmo

He's missed 40 games and he has 4.9 WAR (both fWAR and bWAR). 4.9 is a pretty great full season for most players. Just shows you how incredibly special Trout is.


argothewise

It’ll be 5 after tonight


Ohminty

Fish man good.


yawgwin

Fish man indeed good.


damnatio_memoriae

and here i was worrying about him...


DJamB

Nature is def healing


Mikeandthe

After that first strike this was the most predictable HR of all time. He was MAD


Ash-Catchum-All

Seriously that was a horseshit strike call. The ball was neck level


Thromnomnomok

How can a ball be neck level to Mike Trout when he doesn't have a neck?


Ash-Catchum-All

He’s all neck, just one thicc neck lol


IncreaseMountain2098

His belt is really a necklace


damnatio_memoriae

i am having impure thoughts that i dont even understand


vaesauce

I laughed harder than I should have. This is an amazing underrated comment.


BayoBeat

This Mike Trout guy seems pretty good


riceilove

Fish man good


yawgwin

Fish man indeed good.


JorSimpson45

the things i would do for a full 162 of michael nelson trout


blasek0

I think Trout playing a full 162 is basically a guaranteed lock for MVP.


JorSimpson45

historically if he plays 134 or more games he’s finishing top 2 lmao


blasek0

Yeah. He's pretty inarguably the best player of his generation when he's healthy.


JorSimpson45

woa settle down with the hot takes there pal


blasek0

I'm cooking, it comes with a side of hot takes.


my_wife_reads_this

HES GOING TO STEAL MVP


SuckMyLonzoBalls

I mean what if he hits a home run every game until the end of the season. That would put him at 58 HRs lol Edit: sprinkle in a few multi home run games and he can get to 62!


pm_me_cute_sloths_

Ok but what if he does


Derang3rman1

He hits like a maniac at T-Mobile so who fucking knows.


soapbutt

So he won’t actually hit a home run a day, just 4 times for each game he plays at T-Mobile 😭 I think we could still win.


ButtcheeksBrown

What if he hits 1,000 home runs in one inning?


yinyin123

I think I'd start foaming at the mouth


waterdevil19

I feel like somewhere around 200, they might start walking him tho….


yinyin123

Hell learn the pitches well enough to hit even those out the park


LeopardSeal2

At that point the chance to get an out is more important than the 500 run deficit climbing to 501.


angelfan_named_angel

I actually LOL'd at this comment.... ​ Lots of licking (my lips)


damnatio_memoriae

we all know it's technically possible, but... if it *did* actually happen, that necessarily implies that the team scores at least 8990 runs in that inning ~~*and* everyone in the lineup would be guaranteed to hit at least .624 on the season. just sayin.~~ edit: unless they all walked, unless they all walked...


ButtcheeksBrown

Not if they all walked


damnatio_memoriae

lol oh sure just fuck up my shit


PickledSmallpox

Did you account for 2 outs?


damnatio_memoriae

lol, yes, i did. i assumed trout led off the inning with a HR, then all 9 players had 999 consecutive PAs, exactly two of which were outs, culminating with trout's 1000th HR to clear the bases. so 1 + 9*999 PAs = 8992 PAs, all but 2 of which ultimately resulted in a run. worst case scenario, the next batter makes an out to end the inning at 8990 runs.


PickledSmallpox

I respect it. Just hope Trout didn’t have a foul tip in there. Seriously though, I like it.


JoeG5

I know Mike Trout is a god, but I'm not sure he'll reach [3.15 x 10^85](https://www.reddit.com/r/unexpectedfactorial/) homers.


JolIyJack

Yeah well, that's just like your opinion man.


damnatio_memoriae

lmao


SuspectNo7354

Imagine he hits enough home runs that it makes what judge has done this year no longer a massive outlier. He can help ohtani win the MVP indirectly. It's looking like judge may win the home run race by 20, he probably will also get to 62. There's no way he would lose the MVP in that scenario. If trout can close the gap though, maybe it pulls some voters away from judge.


rwbeckman

More realistically, his best is 45. Ohtani got 46 last year, and Troy Glaus is the Angels record holder at 47.


BadDadJokes

Dude would’ve prolly hit 60 this year if he was healthy. Truly a shame.


bigboybluesy

MICHAEL TROUT WITH A STEEL CHAIR


ColaBottleBaby

Pretty good for a guy who's baseball career was over last month


ElBluntDealer

Yea, pretty good for a guy who's back completely disintegrated; leaving Trout as a geriatric potato


YouStupidDick

A potato that hits dingers at an alarming rate


One_Relative5830

You could say he *mashes*


skippyfa

Pretty good for a pitching machine swing


[deleted]

And my man took that personally


inhale-my-dong

Welcome to your regularly scheduled Mike Trout dinger thread.


twitchosx

I've missed these for sure.


_Rizzen_

It's beautiful.


twitchosx

it makes my vagina wet. And I have a dick! WTF!?


redsyrinx2112

And I'm very okay with it.


damnatio_memoriae

These Mike Trout dinger threads are all the same.


msflagship

34 home runs in a down year for trout. Unbelievable.


jorleeduf

A down year in which he missed significant time and was diagnosed with a rare terminal back problem. Dude is actually one of the most talented athletes ever


ThisAnswerIsLit

🐐


Mikeandthe

Lmao at the guy who fell over catching it. It was that fast/hard hit.


Michael__Pemulis

I was at a game a couple months ago & a foul ball looped over the net, headed for the stairs adjacent to my section. Two guys got up to catch it. It hit one of them square in the chest. His body flew back like he got punched by a superhero.


wronglyzorro

I was at a ducks game and a puck went up over the net and smoked an unsuspecting dude walking down the aisle with 2 full trays of nachos and drinks. He fell backwards on his ass covered in cheese and soda. Felt bad for the guy, but it was hilarious for everyone else to see. I think Wildwing ended up coming down with some merch for him in the next period.


my_wife_reads_this

Dude I saw a stray puck hit a kid/teen in the face. It was terrifying as it just smacked him and blood immediately started pouring out but the sound he made was pretty fucking funny, not gonna lie.


daddy_chill_300

I was laughing so hard


Ash-Catchum-All

Fuck it give him the MVP I guess


gatemansgc

He keeps this up and he could sneak in there


obsidianop

For ten years it's "is player x as good as Mike Trout? They're competing for MVP" but player x changes every year.


MrOz1100

Yeah but he’s only won MVP three times. Should DFA him


DividerOfBums

“Hey, don’t forget about Aaron Judge” -u/SannySen


redcobra80

Lord have mercy if we ever forget about the Yankees (not hating on Judge tho)!


i_run_from_problems

HES JUST SO FUCKING GOOD


xX_Sliqhs_Xx

For such an amazing feat the commentator could have at least tried to fake some excitement


Fischer-00

I don't like it today.


BeHereNow91

Had no idea Jeff Levering did national stuff. I’ve grown to like him, but yeah, he doesn’t always have a ton of pizazz. He’s got a little bit of early Joe Buck in him.


P-Helen

Let us honor a homerun in 6 consecutive games with a low-energy call. Nice


Sanhen

Seriously. The difference between the level of interest they showed in his record breaking homerun and a ball 4 walk is nil.


sbasinger

This crew fucking sucks. No energy at all - on either side.


greggweylon

Is it a national broadcast?


popfilms

when all of fox's top guys are doing cfb today or nfl tomorrow


owlbrain

Just about as terrible a call as it gets.


kaymazing

Yea that's the Brewers radio guy not named Uecker. He's fine but how did he pull this job?!?


713MoCityChron713

Trout about to finish top 5 in mvp voting in an injured season


johndhall1130

Again


jimithelizardking

Still the best in the game


lifeisarichcarpet

What’s that sound about a half-second after he hits the ball? Do they bang a trash can now to tell the outfielders they don’t have to turn around?


kampfgruppekarl

LOL


TyhmensAndSaperstein

Don't get too excited, guy in the booth. I wouldn't want you to hurt your vocal chords.


sbasinger

Right? This announcing crew is low energy - zero fun. I had to mute them.


GutterRider

Is that the KLAA local crew? Yeah, he takes some getting used to. Between them and the Dodgers radio side, listening to baseball on the radio is hard here.


DifferentKindaHigh

He can’t keep getting away with this! Fish man good wow 😍


strikershiv95

Big fly Mike Trout!!!


AlmostLucy

Bring back Victor 😭


cz_pz

too busy being a GM, but fr he was my fav part of trout/ohtani highlight reels from 2019


Monttavius

He’s a fucking monster


itsnotyellowfever

All these Mike Trout home run posts are the same


WalksWithKemba

No, the Angels are winning in this one


ghost_rider24

Give us time


itsnotyellowfever

He did say the *Angles* are winning so I'm hoping your team's chances of winning are just as good


YaBoiWhit

Astros have been kinda owned by Ohtani this year and don't really make comebacks this year Not over yet obviously but odds look good


Doomblitz

Bullpen has gone back to shit after a solid month, give it time.


ghost_rider24

Hey man, you know the rules. We can’t have all parts working together at the same time. One of them has to tank the team. Bullpen is just doing it’s job now that the bats are somewhat alive again.


ghost_rider24

Ah, but you forget the Angels bullpen.


YaBoiWhit

I thought yalls pitching staff has been amazing lately? Or was that just for early August


i_run_from_problems

Rude. Not wrong, per se, but still. Rude.


gottahavemytunes

*Angels


NegativePositive

No, people were actually on base for this one


Looscannon994

LMAO he wants the MVP for himself


crazyal21

This video is fake. There were runners on base when he hit that HR


TheOrangeFutbol

And it supposedly gave them a lead. These deepfakes are getting too realistic looking.


greengorilla60

MVP


dilly_dill428

Boost him back to a 97 overall, SDS


Jokez4Dayz

They need to at least supercharge him at this point.


Bug-03

Welp


Careless_Bat2543

Mike Trout saw the post about Ohtani being the team leader in literally everything and he took that personally.


tristpa2

Someone's gonna set the AL home run record this year. But it won't be Judge


inthere99

playing Seattle in 6 days...


tristpa2

Unfortunately not in Seattle.


inthere99

Ah well. Still catching Judge though :D


YouKilledKenny12

My god. It’s so damn sad we are going to miss out on seeing him and Ohtani in the playoffs…again


beedly

All those pictures that guy drew must have helped a lot.


mysterysackerfice

Nobody in the GDT jinxed it..that's why it happened


happymeal98

Hear me out, he's gonna catch Judge.


Wise_ol_Buffalo

Jason Bourne says “Jesus Christ, that’s Mike Trout…”


attorneyatslaw

It’s nice to see that the daily “Mike Trout is good” post is back.


[deleted]

Mike Trout


loadedryder

GOAT things


Meaninglessnme

He's hitting dongs in Houston this might be his final form


CompetitivePatient33

I'm just happy he is playing healthy


doyouevenIift

2 more to tie the record.


seeker135

I hope he hits forty-two in a row.


russellx3

Y'all almost forgot who the best player of the century was


Jed1M1ndTr1ck

Yes please get it out of your system before we come to town. ...please


tristpa2

You know that's not how it works


Jed1M1ndTr1ck

Dang it


blasek0

So what you're saying is Trout is going to break the consecutive games with an HR? Only 3 games to go.


Putrid_Fox_5826

Consider this… mike stays hot for the mariners series 😁


Dontyouclimbtrees

Wtf was that fake bat-noise a second or 2 after he hit the ball? Almost shattered my eardrums.


wZtk64

I thought something fell in my house


greengorilla60

That was the ball shattering the sound barrier.


MahomestoHel-aire

That was the pure definition of teeing off. Put it right where he likes it.


blasek0

Can't be hanging 93 middle-in to Trout. That is just asking for a ball to get absolutely blasted.


BlazedHonez420

Looks like he murdered a fan as well... R.I.P. In Peace


About38Penguins

Fish man hit ball real good


3luejays

Holy moly, talk about making up for lost time.


revolutionoverdue

Somebody should draw a picture of Mike trout every day he hits a home run.


Super_Saiyan_Carl

Using advanced math, if he hits another home run that’ll be one more than he has now.


johndhall1130

Peer reviewed your number. Math checks out.


syythemonster8

further proving he’s the greatest of all time


GLemons

Interesting pitch selection of middle in to Trout


benhadhundredsshapow

Amazing.


The-Pharcyde

MVP


Kropduster01

Anyone have the exit velo on that one? That thing was crushed


gomets6091

Hot take: Mike Trout is pretty good


justwonderingbro

Damn I'm gonna have to agree with ya on that one. Hope we don't get too much heat.


Coombis

Imagine having to pitch to Mike Trout in on a field with the Crawford boxes


Player7996_

Believe it or not, I think yesterday was the first time he’s homered in Houston since 2019


Dinobot2_

Really making up for the time he missed, damn.


Andy_La_Negra

WTF is a Mike Trout??


Pho3n1xNZ

That’s Mike Trout!


hime2011

How many franchise records will he hold when he's done?


kampfgruppekarl

Now that we're looking at the back half of his career, I'm saddened by all his missed time and how it will affect his final records and where he will end up in the inner hall.


blasek0

Yes?


McMuffin978

He is one of the most skilled players to ever step on a baseball field


vaesauce

Fishman or Fishgod?


necrosythe

Dude what the fuck. He's the GOAT


daytona813

Recognize his goat status now


CryDifferent9544

He’s just so effortlessly good too. Such a compact quick swing but the ball shoots off his bat


Butterupcake

That Fish can hit


airvent_from_diehard

The Angels? A franchise? Trout? Mike? Consecutive?


baseballBEERfish

The broken spine revenge tour continues!


gopackgo555

Yeah yeah we get it, you’re the best. Please stay this way for another 5 years.


FreedomConversions

This Trout kid is alright. The Angels should make sure he stays healthy.


Harambefan69

FMG


pogihajimasaeyo

Mike Trout doing Mike Trout things LFG


gd5k

Could the call on this be any more matter of fact? Lol


pokuss

If he hits a homer in every game for the rest of the season would that be enough to get him the mvp?


TheSalsaGod

That would likely result in the greatest offensive season of all time so yeah.


throatbutterz

Sucks that his career is over :(


macula_transfer

This is a truly historic occasion. The Angels are winning.


gambit700

If this man could only stay healthy


damnatio_memoriae

mother fucker must be tired of seeing ohtani's face on the angels leaders page lol


hbooriginalseries

The most fundamental swing of all time. What a beauty.


seKer82

Really hope he ends up with a team that isn't complete garbage.


WTF_MATLAB

“Ends up” as if he didn’t chose to sign with this complete garbage team.
