As of today, wRC+ 2018: 190 Trout 181 Betts 170 Martinez wRC+, All time: 1 Ruth 2 Williams 3 Gehrig 4 Hornsby 5 Bonds 6 Trout 7 Mantle 8 Cobb Let’s stop pretending we aren’t in the middle of watching the greatest player to ever step onto the diamond. He’s doing it on a mediocre team, not on steroids, in an era where every race is invited to play, against multiple well-rested pitchers per game, and against guys consistently throwing 95+. He’s top or next to the top in wRC+ every year. He’s a plus defender. He’s fast and smart on the basepaths. Trout is the best baseball player ever.
