Have you ever seen or noticed Mike Trout or Bryce Harper play.Well I have and it's incredible to watch them play. These two players were prospects since the age of 15. This is something Jon Paul Morosi said about the two, “Harper and Trout are fun to watch. They’re exciting players. The writers, the fans — everyone appreciates that. Those guys are going to be around for 15, 16 years. And it’s not just writers and fans. There are guys around the league watching them. I can see why they get the attention.” (Trout vs. Harper: Who ya got? 1) They were All Americans and the best players on there teams. So far in these players’ careers they have made a mark in the league and there greatness is still to come. They have also won many achievements and they have only been in the league for a couple seasons. Mike Trout is better than Bryce Harper because of his achievements, his career stats, and his mental games and attitude.
Lebron James and Kobe Bryant are two of the most explosive players in the NBA today. Each player has his own playing style that separates him from the rest of the league. Both players have their own career achievements, endorsements, and personal life stories behind the game. If you ask anybody, the comparison between these two players is great. It is a never ending debate between who is better because both players have something different to bring to the table. Side by side on paper, both players seem dominant and may one day end up in the basketball hall of fame. But as individuals, side by side, each has a different but similar life.
James is so far 25th in steals, averaging 2.3 steals a game. Lebron is a beast when it comes to blocking shots, but has only 262 career blocks, while Jordan had a 100 block just within a season. People can go back and forth with the stats, Lebron is better than Michael in certain areas but at the end, Jordan will overall have a better record than Lebron.
Bryce Harper is the player that you love to have on your own team, but opponents can't stand him! He might have a swagger that annoys opponents, but he is one heck of a baseball player and this year he is breaking out to the superstar everyone expected! He is just 22 years of age and he is one of the most feared hitters in baseball. He has battled injuries to start his career because of what some have termed too much hustle, but this year he has put all together. He is hitting .331 27 home runs and 64 runs batted in the no question NL MVP at this point in the season. He might rub fans and opponents the wrong way but he is fun to watch play baseball I just wish as a Braves fan he was in a different division.
Mike Trout has always had self-discipline since he was a kid, that's why he has always had such an impeccable work ethic. He has worked since little league to be the best he could become at the game. He would hit in the cages and take ground balls 5 days a week for two hours in the gym during the winter. He has already made some of the most iconic plays in baseball history. He always says “I pride myself on defense”, which is why he has already won a Golden Glove Award. He was drafted late in the first round which shows if you work hard at something you can achieve it. When he was drafted he came in and made an immediate impact on his team.
Baseball icon and public figure Bryce Harper is known to be one of the most hardworking players ever. He works to perfect his craft diligently each and every day. Harper prides himself in earning everything he has. He also has his own line of baseball gear and clothing. He has an endorsement with Under Armor and they have created him his own logo that goes on merchandise to be sold to the fans. He is known as favorite among most baseball fans, largely in part to how he plays the game, full of hustle and class. He is also known to have one of the best haircuts and beards in the game.
The St. Louis Cardinals is a baseball team that is well-known around the world. They are also widely known to be spectacular in their leadoff batting in recent years. For every team, the top of the lineup is where the best all-around hitter is placed, and every year there is a battle for that spot. To be the best all-around hitter, a player has to have an outstanding On Base Percentage (OBP), Batting Average (BA), and On Base Plus Slugging Percentage (OPS). Two players that the Cardinals typically choose to bat leadoff are Matt Carpenter and Kolten Wong. Kolten Wong can hold his own in the Major Leagues, however, Matt Carpenter is the definite choice when it comes to leadoff batting.
Yadier Molina is and always will be one of the greatest catcher to ever play the game of baseball. With Yadi coming into the league at such a young age, he has had more of an opportunity to prove himself and the stats and awards he has won can really back it up. Not just is he one of the greatest to play the game at that position, he is one of the best “on the field managers” as they say as far as controlling the tempo of the game and how it is played. With all of the accomplishments Molina has had in his career, it proves why he is one of the best to ever play the game at the catching position.
During the 2015 All Star Game he hit a leadoff homer off of Zack Greinke, who is a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers one of the Angels biggest rivals. Many people are comparing Mike Trout to Mickey Mantle, some say the modern day Mickey Mantle. Ever since that day that my neighbor took me to the game, I have been going to almost every home game and trying to get autographs. I have already obtained numerous autographs of today’s MLB stars including Mike Trout. I don’t usually sell any of my collection unless I need money to get more supplies for autographs. Most likely I would rather trade items in my collection for other items in other peoples collections, which I am not able to receive because the players playing another state that I am unable to attend the games of. Many people are always trying to get a Mike Trout autograph because he is one of the most wanted autographs in all of baseball currently. Since I do attend the games and I am able to obtain numerous, I will then trade for other MLB stars that play for other teams. For example an autographed baseball Miguel Cabrera who plays for the Detroit Tigers. I believe this hobby is very useful for job environment, because I have already been able to experience buying and selling items and also dealing with a variety of
Jorge Posada has seen and been through it all, he has seen the best and worst of the team and as well put a career that might not pop out to your face as maybe the others of the Core Four. But if you look deeper, you would realize that Jorge Posada is more than ready to become the first of the Core Four and as well the 18th catcher to be enshrined in Cooperstown, New
“His superb tools on defense, particularly his arm, have been a well-know fact in the big leagues for 10 years. But his bat is also a major force now” (Eshoff, Ryan Para 1). Yadier Molina is well known for his stunning arm, wonderful skills in baseball, and his leadership for the team. Yadier Molina is the catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. Yadier had an average life growing up playing baseball just like any other little boy, he has accomplished tons of things and has become famous for those things; he also helps the charities in his hometown community and around the world.
There has always been discussions about the greatest, and most talented quarterbacks to play for the Green Bay Packers. And have the gunsling, big arm, Brett Favre vs the accurate, fast Aaron Rodgers. Both are mvp quarterbacks in the NFL and will both go down in history. Looking at the details and structure of both quarterbacks, there are qualities that are similar and different. While some similarities between Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre are noticeable, the differences are more striking.
