It’s nice to see Luck having fun in the off season instead of rehabbing injuries.

Good thing it wasn't an outdated cell phone battle 

 

Trout wouldn’t stand a chance.

I would assume not...since Luck is endorsing it.

If we ever see Luck wearing a fur coat we will know we lost him to the dark side.

Trout and Luck...seems like an odd pairing...but it sort of works. Both are goofy looking dudes.

 

Not really sure who the equivalent of Trout in the NFL would be...he's the best ever.

I guess Luck has a huge investment piece in this company.

 

Yeah he got involved in it like right after his rookie year.

 

He's not the only one, a lot of athletes have a stake in the company.  I'm guessing Mike Trout does too.

I cover Baseball as much as I do football. I think Trout is a great player but overrated for many reasons. He has never been on a team that has won a playoff game and he has only made the playoffs once in his 8 yr career. He has never been a huge difference maker. His lifetime batting avg is .307 = great by not eye popping, no where near like a Tony Gwynn type of hitter. In his 8 yr career he averages 30 HR's a season = good but not great. Kris Bryant has only been in the league for 4 years and already has won an MVP and a World Series and doesn't make near the money Trout makes. I just don't think Trout deserves the contract he got nor did Harper.

 

Now to the video, Luck is such a nerd but I love it. Funny stuff.

Not as odd as you may think. Both stars of their leagues that aren't big for the spotlight. Humbled. Kinda works for that reason.

You gotta remember WAR, that is why he gets ranked so high. It is baserunning, hitting, fielding, discipline. Why he is ranked high. Batting AVG doesn't show nearly as much, and remember some of the years he was injured for most. And use in context of todays game for homeruns, that is pretty high. And playoffs in baseball is team so much more than even football. Luck can signal handly change the level of team as we have seen. Baseball no matter who, cannot single change. If pitching staff sucks even the best hitter ever can't get that team to playoffs as he can only hit once every 9 times

Good points but the way people talk about Trout you would think he has won 2 or 3 WS by now and he is the best of all-time. I get that it is a team sport but even Luck with a bad roster won 3 playoff games in his 1st 3 years. Also Tony Gwynn was a lifetime .336 hitter for example, Trout is not the player Gwynn was. I can name at least 20 players all-time since just 1980 that are better than Trout. I know I am knocking Trout which is unfortunate because I do think he is great and a good guy but I think people tend to overrate him, JMO.

You still trying to compare luck to trout. It is harder, think about the Cubs, they had Rizzo and Castro lost a hundred games. Bryant, Javy, Lester, Etc come and they win WS. It is easier in NFL to have a great QB take you to the playoffs, MLB you need supporting cast no matter how good. Look at some of the other top players. 

 

And again Batting AVG is so different now compared to then. Ted Williams hit over .400 at one point. WRC, WAR, these stats adjust for era and Ballpark and are much better than batting AVG. And I mean Tony Gwynn was great but he had a lot more going for him then just AVG if he only had avg it never would be enough for Hall of Fame

I get what you are saying but I still think Trout gets too much hype. See the Baseball thread and my post. Tell me he is better than any of the players I have listed. You may think so because you are younger than me, so not a knock against you. No biggy. In football it is a true team game as well and Luck can't play defense but he is still a huge difference maker. I am not a huge fan of WAR or PER or even QB rating. Those systems are flawed.

I agree WAR is flawed, but is much better to compare generations as it evens out so that one generation is not weighted to heavily

I don't find them to be an odd pairing at all!

    • that guy is too short, has no wheels, and has to take a time out after every 6 attempts. will never make it.. nice jugs though
    • The facts.. a hung jury (twice) mistrial with most voters having sided for the alleged accuser/victim... both times.     She (prosecution) didn't drop the charges, the school (judge/jury) did.  She wanted round 3.  She wanted a full yes or no vote (4-1 or 5-0) either way, not we're split 3-2 so we'll just call it against the majority vote and designate as "Not Responsible" because it isn't 4 or more votes either way. - 'Case closed'.     There were questions (and other items) from the accuser that were never allowed in or asked in follow up questioning.  I think one of the changes to the Stanford Title IX hearing rules is to also allow an attorney to be not only in attendance but to also perform all duties of representation.  And an outside group determines what is admissible as questions/evidence, follow questions, etc...     At some level, it did, and many things at Stanford were changed after. At the  minimum, it was a mistrial x2, with no conclusive verdict either way. Then school (not prosecution) drops the case.   So she really needed to report this to both the school, and also the Police.  But with what evidence does she have to convince the LEO?  Guess the gals need some hidden body cam w/audio these days, like many folks do with dash cams (like me and my wife's cars...) and be their own TMZ...   Video, apparently the only way things get rectified anymore...     No worries, at least we know each others positions.  All is good.     Except to have (at some level) differing story from a another high achieving Stanford student about another high achieving Stanford student-   https://www.collegesimply.com/colleges/california/stanford-university/admission/     We don't even know for certain they ever got the FULL story, but articles I've read suggest that the Stanford Panel repressed/disallowed many/most of her interrogating questions and supplemental follow up inquiries to be asked of the accused.  Unless someone directly asks her directly, how could you answer as to whether her whole story was even heard or not?   If you are not truly interested to fully know those answers, then you don't ask.  At least, that's my perspective.  
    • you and me both. the period between basketball and football sucks (base) balls. the only thing i'm enjoying now is the women's WC.   i'm still leaning towards thinking we'll keep 6 WRs this season given all the puts and takes. DF it TE-lite, Cain coming back from injury, PC a rook, TY coming off being banged up, Fountain improving, Roger's reliability and cross training..... and sheet might happen like Cain being pup'd and I think Fountain can spend another year on the PS.
    • and very hard to watch the D for all those games without him.... truly epic player with truly epic injury issues...   i know all teams go through injuries, but seems like we've been especially cursed with Sanders, Manning, and Luck. That's 3 of my five favorite Colts lol.
    • Ugh Hendricks sent to the IL, prospect Adbert Alzolay might be called up. Currently down 1-0 in the 7th.
