I only deal in mindfacts. I think Trout gets a lot of good free press because he's in LA and all that. I feel the same way about him being designated "a rookie". Trout is the chosen one. The triple crown is a special designation to this old guy. To me, that trumps all the WARs, etc. Why are there conditions for Cabrera and not Yaz or Williams or Robinson or Mantle? I'm bailin' on this thread before I get in trouble.
You want special?
